Xavier has the absolute BEST community! It's a great feeling walking around campus and at any given time seeing someone you had Freshman Orientation with, someone in your class, your friends, roommates, and acquaintances. Every professor I have had put in so much time and passion into the class- even core classes become very interesting. My largest class so far, I am Sophomore, was 30 students and it was for a Core class. Xavier classes can be challenging because the professors and University expect the best out of their students but they are also very rewarding. Xavier had great connections all over especially in Ohio. Getting a job, internship or going to graduate school will be easy. Men's basketball is a great sport to watch here and is always fun! The Cincinnati area is a great place to find great restaurants and shopping and always has an event going on to offer college students something to do. Xavier offers busing to most of the popular places in Cincinnati and they have special occasion busing for events such as Oktoberfest. They have a ton of clubs that really allow people to become involved quickly with the school, make friends, and if they want become involved with the community. Their housing should be expanded but what they do have is great, especially Husman and Khulman. The caf is great especially compared to University of Cincinnati but they have Currito, Subway, Blue Gibbon, Ryan's Pub, X Spot, Starbucks, Coffee Emporium, and Ignation Station where you buy food at. If you are seriously looking into Xavier I would plan a visit on a weekday when everyone is walking around so you can experience the campus community and also Preview Day, which is when I meet my roommate, who I will live with again next year(total of 3 years). As far as the party scene, on campus its non-existent really. You will have to go off campus to houses, of go to UC. But no matter your preference you will find great friends that are either into the party scene or not.

Xavier University provides a pretty decent balance between challenging courses and professors who care about your development and success. It's warm hearted atmosphere is noticed everywhere as classmates hold doors open for one another, share a coffee after class, or even form study groups for classes. Don't worry, we know how to have fun too! There are so many clubs and organizations, as well as intramural or club sports. And, plenty of students venture to the local bars, pubs, and breweries off campus.

I love my current dorm and will have my pick of housing for this upcoming year. Each dorm has vending and laundry options. I have a washer/dryer set on my floor and its great! Brockman Hall is probably the best dorm for freshman because it is community style and has a great social aspect. Its not hard to make friends in Brockman because if you see them once then youll see them all the time. The vending options are good and usually there is a wide variety. In Brockman there are laundry amenities on the ground floor and the 3rd floor. Brockman is also close to the students center making it a short walk to the printer, coffee and food.
