If yes, the Xavier Center for Innovation has the best belated Valentine's day gift you'll ever get.
We're bringing the #Startupcincy Internship Fair back to Xavier for a second run. Young, innovative, creative, and fun companies will be at the CFI looking for students like you to join their team.
So take hold of this opportunity. Come in your casual clothes, grab a slice of pizza (did we mention that there will be pizza), and get yourself an internship.

Professor James Helmer is offering "Religion, Politics, and Culture in Contemporary Britain" in London during the month of July 2016. Visits to sites of historical and contemporary significance (St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster, the Tower of London) are a central element in this experientially-driven course that explores the religious, political, and cultural landscape of contemporary Britain.
This course satisfies the CORE course requirement for "Theological Perspectives", "Humanities Electives", and "E/RS focus electives".
The other taught courses in the London Program are Professor Fiorelli's "BLAW 300" course - which is a required course for Business majors, but also satisfies an E/RS focus elective, a GDST elective and a DCR elective - and Professor Polt's "Philosophy of Beauty" course - which satisfies either the "Philosophical Perspectives" or "Humanities Electives" Core course requirements.
Students take two out of the three courses in Monday-Thursday morning classes.

Celebration of Student Research and Creative Activity to be held on Friday, April 15, 2016
Posted: 2/8/16 12:24 PM
The Celebration of Student Research & Creative Activity is held every spring to recognize students' scholarly endeavors performed under the guidance of faculty, and allows students to present their accomplishments to the broader Xavier community. Although the Celebration is hosted by the College of Arts & Sciences, students from all colleges and disciplines are encouraged to submit their work. To expand participation to all colleges this year, we encourage the broadest definition of research and creative activity. As was the case last year, the Celebration will begin around 2:00 pm and finish in the evening with a keynote speaker and recognition of the Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year.
For more information and to submit an abstract by the March 1st deadline, please follow the link below:

As part of Xavier's longest running London program, students will attend the plays Wicked and Les Miserables for Professor Fiorelli's BLAW300 class. Students who take Dr. Helmer's Theology class or Dr. Polt's Philosophy class will also attend the plays. All three courses are very "core friendly"
BLAW300 (Professor Fiorelli) - is a required course for all business majors. There are no prerequisites, so non-business majors are also very welcome to take this class. BLAW300 also satisfies an E/RS focus elective, a DCR elective and a GDST elective.
PHIL (Dr. Polt) - satisfies either a 2d level philosophy class, or a humanities elective.
THEO (Dr. Helmer) - satisfies either a 2d level theology requirement, or a humanities elective.
For more information about the trip, please contact Professor Fiorelli at email@example.com, (513)745-2050, visit www.xavierlondon.com or like us on Facebook.com/xulondon.

Students! Xavier needs your powerful voices to help the university better understand your multi-faceted experiences. You've probably received a number of surveys making a similar request, but this survey is really different. The results of this survey will be used by faculty and administrators to make immediate and long-term improvements in the classroom, housing, advising, offices you make use of or in your interactions with one another.
Be sure to mark your calendars for the entire month of March. No not just for March Madness, but also for completing this survey! The survey will be live from March 1-24 at www.xavier.edu/beheard. #BeHeard
