Whitney Menser

Assistant Director for Student Success

(She, Her, Hers)

I’m originally from Crestwood, Kentucky and recently moved to Cincinnati from London, England. Perhaps because of my time in England, I LOVE going for walks in the rain (with proper boots of course)! You can usually find me curled up reading a book or watching travel videos online. I recently adopted a Collie named Hope and she and I are enjoying getting to know everyone in Cincinnati. I received my undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in Interdisciplinary Humanities and my graduate degree from The University of Louisville in College Student Personnel. I am thrilled to be a part of the Xavier family!

Hometown
I grew up in Crestwood, KY—just outside of Louisville!

Favorite thing about Xavier
I love the community of giving that I find here. People are always willing to stop and answer questions at any moment. Everyone really cares about individuals and their unique needs.

Favorite thing about Cincinnati
I love exploring The FREE Cincinnati Art Museum and then taking my dog for a walk in Eden Park—right down the hill! I love that Cincinnati is a dog-friendly city and that there are plentiful green spaces in which to walk, run, and play.

Best advice for an incoming first year student
Talk to your professors! They want to support you in any way they can and they are really interesting and incredible people to get to know!
