If you're looking for a school that is more focused on academics than partying, Xavier is the place to be. Xavier's small campus makes it easy to get where you need to be on time in any condition. While the core curriculum is extensive, you can meet these requirements in a variety of ways that are relevant to you and your major, so you won't have to take any useless classes.
