Campus Housing: Dorms have AC, cable, and other amenities. I live in Brockman, which people bash on a lot for being the worst but I think it's the best. It's really about what you want from the experience. It gives you a more traditional and social experience at Xavier, and there's definitely a lot of fun to be had there. Strongest bonds and the strongest community is at Brockman. And the bathrooms aren't even that bad.

Athletics: Basketball is HUGE here at Xavier, and the vibes you get from the campus during that season definitely show that. Lots of school spirit and support for a lot of the school teams, especially if they're doing well. Some other popular sports are the Men's Soccer and Baseball teams.

Overall Experience: From the moment you have your first campus visit to the day you walk on for orientation, you already feel like a par of the Xavier family. It is extremely welcoming and harbors a compassionate community.

Overall Experience: Great teachers, great people, great nightlife, and great sports.

Party Scene: Xavier does not deserve the reputation it gets. It's not a big state school, but for a small Jesuit school it's great. It may be hard to get into parties as a freshman, but it gets much easier later on. Plus, there are a ton of great bars and clubs in Cincy for the college crowd, especially in Mt. Adams.

Party Scene: For a small catholic school the scene is pretty good. Some underclassmen might find it difficult to get into parties at first, but just make friends with upperclassmen and you'll be in. The day party scene could use some improvement, but there are some awesome parties at night. There is a decent chunk of students who are not into partying, but that does not stop the even bigger chunk of students who are into partying from having a good time. If you want to party, get in the right crowd, stay positive, get a fake id, and make the party happen. In the end, a school's party scene is only as good as the students make it.

Xavier does not deserve a reputation as a non-partying school.

Diversity: The diversity here on campus is probably very similar, maybe even more diverse, than the diversity of America.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Your interaction with drugs depends on the crowd you hang with. Still, there is a decent amount of drug use.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school is surrounded by a slightly sketchy area, but the XUPD does a great job of keeping students safe.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Every hall has its own unique character.

Athletics: Great D1 sports. Also a wide variety of Intramurals.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Xavier university is a community you can never afford to miss with people around ready to answer your questions anyday , anytime.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. There are always police around campus if you ever need anything and the blue lights are there in case of emergencies. The police do a great job of keeping the students informed on any safety issues that are going on around campus

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All professors are extremely helpful and willing to meet with you whenever you need. Courses can be difficult, especially science courses. But the work is definitely worth it!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the internships, jobs, and research opportunities are available primarily to upper classmen, and there should me more opportunities for freshman and sophomores. The quality of all the services is great though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great way to stay connected with everything on campus and is very convenient for walking to classes and the cafeteria. Dorms are cleaned frequently and well. Personally, I've heard the best things about Husman Hall, and I lived there and I loved it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. The cops constantly patrol to make sure everything is in order.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When it comes to class sizes, Xavier is simply the best. You get the focus and attention that you need to succeed later on in life. The classes can be difficult and demanding but professors will give you help anytime you ask for it.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Overall, I am definitely satisfied with my experience at Xavier so far. Adjusting to a new city, new school, and new friends was tough at first, but in retrospect, if I were somewhere else besides Xavier, it would've been a lot tougher. The combination of a small school where you can get to know everyone with a big-school atmosphere, including big-time college sports and a big city to explore, makes Xavier a fun and interesting place to be. The people at Xavier are really some of the friendliest you'll meet. (As tired as that sounds, it's absolutely true.) The reason that Xavier has such a high retention rate is that people who take an honest look at Xavier normally want to go here, and rarely are they let down. It's clear when you visit here that things are laid-back, there are no gigantic parties on a weekly basis, and everything is in general serene and comfortable. While it may differ from the typical college experience portrayed in all our favorite movies, the XU experience is enjoyable and dynamic. The beauty of X is it can be whatever you choose to make it. At another school, the pace of life is often determined by a gigantic student body, and if you don't conform, you are an outcast. At Xavier, students have the freedom to be individuals and study, work, and play just about any way they want to.

Sure, there are plenty of things you could gripe about The parking situation is a pain. Housing can be a hassle. Also, if you're looking for a major blowout party every single weekend, Xavier's probably not for you. However, during your tenure at Xavier, you will meet tremendous people from places and backgrounds you may never have been exposed to before, and you will also get opportunities, both academic and in life, that you could not have had anywhere else. Go Musketeers!
