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.
Contact Danica Lombardi at email@example.com.

Due to lack of study space on campus, it is felt by some members of the Xavier Community that the students would greatly benefit from being able to access Alter Hall 24/7. Currently, No one can swipe into Alter after 10 PM, however, if you are in Alter prior to 10, you are permitted to stay. Help us in our quest to make it easier for students to achieve more by providing a large study and work space! Sign our Free petition at the link below!!
