Four Unforgettable Years
The Jesuit model of teaching goes beyond textbooks and classrooms. It encourages students to round out their academics through service, community engagement and extracurricular activities. But don’t just take our word for it. Hear what students love most about life on campus.
Xavier was the place where I felt most at home, where I knew I could make a difference and become the person I aspire to be. Over the last three years I've become a leader on this campus, as well as in my community, as I work for the Cincinnati Recreation Commission and serve as its Youth & Teen Council Adviser.

Xavier is a very community-oriented school. You definitely feel like you're a part of it. You don't feel like you're just a number. You know people. It's small so that you can make those connections, but it's not too small that you feel like you know every single person.
Xavier is the best place in the world. I mean the people here, the community, everything about it. You’ll find people who you can click with, who will help you to grow, who you'll be able to help them to grow.
