The Magis Society
Magis is the Latin for "more" or "better" or "deeper."
Keep Growing: Your journey of personal growth doesn't end when you leave Xavier. Being in the Magis Society will give you opportunities to continue asking life's critical questions through reflections from other members and current CFJ staff. You will have access to future evenings of reflection and alumni retreats.
Stay Connected: Your time with CFJ programs as an undergraduate student at Xavier gave you a deep sense of community, organized around the important stuff in life. Don't let that kind of community end there. Through the Magis Society, you can stay connected with the kinds of people who made your Xavier experience what it was and you'll also get opportunities to grow that network once you leave. We'll help you network with other people and organizations in your field and provide opportunities to get organized for common causes wherever you find yourself in the great big world out there.
Give Back: Just by virtue of the fact that you have been formed in big and small ways by the CFJ, you have a unique opportunity to support that same kind of transformation for future generations of Xavier students. Help students find their own path toward making their own lives better and the world around them better through your support. Donate your time and talent or support students financially through new and existing programs of the CFJ and together we'll cultivate leaders who will join our movements for good in the years to come.
