Most Helpful Review for Saint Xavier University

I like Saint Xavier because the classes are smaller and it is easy access to get in touch with the teacher. They help you if you have questions and it is more intimate where you can get that one on one needed sometimes.

    Saint Xavier gets a 7/10. It attracts some really nice people and with out them I am not sure what the school would be like.

    Saint Xavier is beautiful university with a great moral value. If you enjoy taking small classes with more attention to detail you will love Saint Xavier. The diverse atmosphere allows for you to learn more than you expect, you will love taking The Examined Life course, you literally examine life.

    Saint Xavier is a very supportive school to their students. They try to do whatever they can to guide the students in the right direction while helping them make the best choices. The teachers and staff overall really want their students to succeed and will do whatever it takes to do so.

  • Mar-01-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Very small, very home-y, and not as great as it is made to seem. Because it is an expensive private school, I expected it would be a very good quality school but it is not up to my standards after visiting. It also is not too good that St. Xavier is one of those schools that accepts just about anyone! Even the kids with quite terrible grades... What does that say about a private school?

    I would say that SXU is great university for those looking for a more personal experience with their professors. The professors are great and very helpful usually if you need assistance they try and help you around your schedule. Very nice campus with a friendly and welcoming staff.

    It's a great school for nursing and education majors, although if you go there in pursuit of other professions you're likely to get a job after graduating anyways. It's overall a great school as far as teachers, it's a small private school so it's pricey, be warned. The professors, for the most part, are easy to get along with, and for students, well- there are more commuters than there are residents, so it's a very commuter-friendly school!

    At SXU, there are helpful staff members, namely people who are willing to help and try to get you the resources you need. They have all types of study rooms and cafeterias and programs to take advantage of! There are all cool events and clubs to attend!
