Transitions is an optional orientation program for graduate, weekend degree, non-traditional, and transfer students. Sessions are held prior to both fall and spring semesters. While the needs vary for each individual, the Transitions Orientation program covers a number of issues that are common to all incoming students: getting information about campus service areas, becoming familiar with campus, and completing basic tasks such as securing a parking pass and student identification card.

Manresa is our 4-day orientation program for all new students, including transfers! However, Manresa is only offered in the fall of every year. Our orientation program focuses on making connections with other new students, upper class students, and Xavier faculty and staff. Manresa provides the opportunity for all new students to understand how to suceed here at Xavier transitionally, spiritually, and academically. We will show you why Xavier was the right place for you to continue your college education!

Move In

As a kickoff to the Manresa Orientation Program, residents will move into their permanent university housing assignment. Our very willing and able Move Crew will carry all of your students' belongings up to their room so they can get settled in and start making a home at Xavier! All resident students are assigned a recommended arrival time for the move-in process which you can find HERE.
