What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
Saint Xavier, I believe care about you, like I said you are not just a number. The counsellors work with you to find out what your strengths are to better guide you in the right direction for a major. You make a lot of good friends here. The academics are wonderful for whatever you choose to major in.
Victoria from University Park, IL
If planning on going to professional school after your undergraduate, try to take some teachers more than once so they'll get to know you. More often than not, you'll want a letter of recommendation from them. It won't work well if they don't know you. In addition, Saint Xavier University not only has a library to study, but a silent room, and an additional floor in the library that has group study rooms with flat screen TVs in them to plug your laptop into.
Lauren from Chicago, IL
Get a high ACT score because the higher it is the more scholarship opportunities will be given to you!
Michelle from Illinois
FILL OUT THE FAFSA!!! Financial aid can be a huge help! Do not overlook it!
APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS!!! As with all private institutions, tuition is higher than with state schools. SXU offers great financial aid and scholarships to all students who apply for them.
VISIT THE CAMPUS!!! Not all college campuses are the same. Some are beyond huge while some are quite small. SXU is quite small. We have a beautiful campus with many lovely outside areas to work or just hang out.
EAT THE FOOD!!! If you do not eat the food when you visit, you are missing out on a deal breaker. Try the food and see your options. If you don't like the food, chances are you might not be very happy living there.
Nicole from Rolling Meadows, IL
Be friendly and come here with an open-mind!
If one professor is not helping you out, contact one who will!
Cara from Blue Island, IL
If attending St. Xavier University, don't be afraid to speak to others or teachers for help. They're willing to help. Manage your time wisely as well and just have fun.
Amelia from Hales Corners, WI
If you do attend Saint Xavier University be sure to go there with an open mind. You are going to meet a ton of new people from all over the world and experience new things as well. Having an open mind can help to easily adjust to the new environment.
Briana from Chicago, IL
