Xavier is not for everybody. If you are one of them types of students who want to go to college to party and not study and not go to class. Then don't waste your time or your money. Even though it is a HBCU and we have fun but Xavier take pride in the education. When you come on campus be ready to work. And if you debating if you should apply, go on ahead and do it. Xavier is an institution that will give you a chance don't matter how your test scores are looking, don't matter if you are rich or poor they will work with because they truly want to see you achieve. So if you get rejected from any other institutions just know that Xavier has your back and will put you to work and challenge you so that you can successful and not a statistic.
Kia from Lithia Springs, GA
Time management. Its necessary. There is so much work to be done and they all have deadlines however you do not want to be just about school. You definitely want to have some fun too, to relieve stress.
Current Xavier University Student
Try to get living arrangements off campus because the freshman dorms are not that great. They are one bedroom, two people, with community bathrooms. There is no kitchen. The only thing you can use is a microwave in the lobby area of each floor. The centralized air conditioning is also annoying because often times it is way too hot, especially during winter.
Tiffany from Belle Chasse, LA
take advantages of extra curricular, networking and research opportunities and make sure your professors know who you are. trust me it makes a huge difference!
delphine from toronto, on
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ....Don't sleep in class. Paying attention in class is the first step in passing your class. Next always have a buddy you can trust at that college because in college, teachers WILL NOT baby you, you are responsible for keeping up with the work. Lastly, homework first, then play later.
