Have extra dining dollars?

Put them to good use during finals week.

From May 1st through 5th, students can purchase non-perishable food items and some health & welness items at the bookstore in GSC. There will be bins marked for donation near the entrance of the store. Leave your puchased items there. All collected items will be used to supplement a food pantry for Xavier students. The food will be made available starting this summer for students living on campus who may need it. It is the hope that this will turn into a year round pantry for students facing food insecurity.

Questions?

Contact Danica Lombardi at lombardid@xavier.edu.

The Celebration of Student Research and Creative Activity on Monday, April 24th 2:00 pm

Posted: 4/20/17 3:59 PM

Please join the College of Art and Sciences for the 23rd annual celebration of this event.  Over 100 students from all three colleges have been working hard over the past year to prepare a poster or oral presentation during the Celebration.

The schedule of events:

Opening Ceremony: The opening ceremony will begin at 2:00 pm on the Ignatian Steps, just outside Alter Hall with brief remarks from Dean David Mengel, College of Arts and Sciences.

Oral Presentations: Presentations will take place beginning around 2:10 pm and running until 4:45 pm in classrooms on the second and third floors of Alter. An official schedule of the talks with assigned room numbers will be sent out as soon as possible so that you can plan which talks you want to attend.

Posters: Poster presentations will be delivered in two sessions. Poster Session A will take place on the second and third floors of Alter Hall from 2:15 to 3:00 pm. Poster Session B will take place on the second and third floors of Alter Hall from 4:00 to 4:45 pm.

Keynote Speaker: At 5 pm, the Celebration of Student Research will move to the Conaton Board Room in Schmidt Hall for the keynote address and the presentation of two awards, the Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year Award (given to a faculty mentor) and the Xavier Undergraduate Research Award (given to a senior undergraduate). Our keynote speaker is Liz Hayden, a 2008 graduate of Xavier University from the Philosophy, Politics and the Public program. She will speak on how undergraduate research has informed her work with the City of Hamilton’s Economic Development Department. A fuller biography is below.

Liz Hayden graduated from Xavier University in 2008 in the Philosophy, Politics, and the Public program.  After working at Working in Neighborhoods, a Cincinnati community development corporation, for two years, she went to Ohio State University and received a Masters in City and Regional Planning and a Masters in Public Policy and Management. 

Liz has worked for the City of Hamilton’s Economic Development Department for five years and focuses primarily on the efforts to revitalize downtown Hamilton. In this role, Liz has been recognized as a Developer Counsellors International 40 Under 40 recipient, Ohio Economic Development Association Rookie of the Year in 2014, and the Hamilton Vision Commission 2017 Work Award recipient.

Liz is also a passionate advocate for women's issues and serves as Board Chair of the YWCA Hamilton, which serves Butler County.

Undergraduate research is a signature experience for our students. We hope  you will be able to join us to support the work our students have done and you will consider inviting younger students to come and see what the future might hold for them.

ATTENTION XAVIER COMMUNITY! We are trying to spread awareness about the cruel conditions of sweatshops that produce majority of the clothes we purchase.  Companies like H&M and Nike use these unsafe and unfair working conditions to produce their products fast and make the most money for themselves.  As a Jesuit community, we are called to fight against this injustice in our world.  As a community, we are petitioning that we will become more aware of who makes our clothes, and limit the amount of clothing bought by companies that use sweatshops.  We also want to utilize companies like Alta Gracia instead of Nike in our All For One Shop.  As a community, I think we can definitely make a difference.  To join our fight, you can sign here: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/x-out-nike and to learn more you can check out our facebook page! Thank you for your support!

Xavier Theatre will close out its 2016-2017 season with Into The Woods. Performances will take place in the Gallagher Student Center Theater April 20-22 at 7:30 pm. There will also be a 2:00 matinee showing on Saturday, April 22. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the box office at 513-745-3939.

Be careful what you wish for … What if Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and the Baker and his Wife lived in the same story? All must venture into the woods to seek fulfillment of their deepest wish, but what they find there is that dreams are rarely simple and wishes are not often granted free of complications. This charming story is at once hilariously funny and deeply moving, a fractured look at the flip side of the classic fairy tales as only master storyteller Stephen Sondheim (composer of Sweeney Todd and Company) could imagine.

Xavier Jazz Series presents:

Christian McBride & Tip City
Friday, April 28 at 8pm
Gallagher Theater

Buy tickets online or call the box office at 513-745-3939

Five-time Grammy-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride makes his return to the Xavier Music Series with Emmett Cohen (piano) and Dan Wilson (guitar). Currently Artistic Director of the Newport Jazz Festival and host of NPR’s Jazz Night in America, he can be likened to a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with the depth and grounding of a seasoned journeyman. Powered by a relentless energy and a boundless love of swing, McBride’s path has described a continuous positive arc since his arrival on the scene. With a career now blazing into its third decade, the Philadelphia native has become one of the most requested, most recorded, and most respected figures in the music world today.

Get Back is a collection of twelve short stories by Don Tassone. These stories share the theme of the rediscovery of talents, pursuits, and loves once held dear, but lost on the way to "success" in life. Don's stories are uplifting and encouraging, encouraging in the sense that they suggest we all might find our ways back, that is, "get back," to the things we once loved, valued the most, and since have lost.
