What Manresa Offers Your Student

Welcome to Xavier! We are so excited you and your student are joining our community. Manresa is designed to help guide you and your new student through the college transition. Whether the college transition is new or familiar for you, Manresa's purpose is to make the switch into Xavier as fun, informative, and worry free as possible. Please do not hesitate to call the Office of Student Involvement at 513-745-3662 with any questions you or your student may have. 

Family Schedule

The Thursday of Manresa focuses on the residential student move in process, Commuter Meet and Eat, and the hand-off from parents and family members to Xavier. Parents and family members are invited to participate in family orientation sessions on Thursday afternoon and then stay for the Presidential Welcome and Community Celebration followed by a reception sponsored by Alumni Relations as students head off to meet their Manresa small groups. The 2016 parent/family schedule will be available in July 2016.


Parent/Family sessions will take place Thursday, August 18, 2016. A full schedule for parents/families will be available in July 2016.
