What Students Are Saying

3.54 Average Rating
xula is a small school, which makes it easy for them to push students and challenge them individually. there are numerous resources available to help students do well like study centres, tutoring centres, si sessions, and it's really easy to get to know your professors and attend office hours. it is hard not to be successful here.
