I would tell a prospective student to check it out a few times. Go on a tour, and stay with a student. I would recommend going to a class or two to see how the classes truly function. I would suggest that a prospective student go out on a weekend with a student to see what the social life is like outside of the academia. Check out the student center, Gallagher Student Center (GSC), during the day to see the dynamics of the school because GSC is truly the hub of the campus. There is a pub/burger joint, subway, a coffee shop, three levels of study area, career services, interfaith offices, and so much more. Also, see what the core values are of the school and look through the website to see if those core values, and the opportunities offered through the school are the same as what you value and are looking for.

Enjoy the uniqueness of Xavier! From the interactions with professors to the church services to the intense basketball games, Xavier is a community wishing to include everyone so that you may have the time of your life.
Katrina from Westerville, OH
It's a great school, but you have to know which teachers to get. The campus is beautiful with great architecture. The teachers actually care about the students and are always willing to help. The classes are all pretty small I have yet to have a lecture bigger than 50 students, and that was a science course.
Katja from Rosharon , TX
A tip for prospective students. What ever university you decide to matriculate through make sure you are fully prepared to manage your school work, relationships, and extracurriculars. I like to think that college is a lot like high school but with homework on steroids and ten times more responsiblity.

Search for plenty of scholarships and grants, and be prepared for an in depth, broad learning experience.
Emily from Newport, KY
Xavier is a little more challenging than other schools, so you need to know how to balance out your schoolwork and hanging out with friends. But after the first year flies by, you won't ever want to leave!
Kiersten from Fayetteville, GA
Don't listen to people when they say college was easier than high school. Sure, you have a lot of freedom and choices, but the material in the classroom is very hard, and you usually don't have homework. You take tests, and that is your grade. Don't slack off or get behind in classes, it won't be good for you in the future.
Megan from Taylor Mill, KY
Get involved! It makes college so much more enjoyable and you will make a ton of friends. Go to the basketball games, the late night movies, or whatever the SGA is offering. Be sure to communicate with your professors. They put themselves out there for a reason. Talk to them during their office hours, over email, or before or after class. And definitely be sure to speak up in class. Professors tend to make participation a part of your grade.
Catie from Newport, KY
Be prepared to work hard and study. You have to also talk to upper classman to see who to take because there are some problems at Xavier like lack of understanding due to accents.
