Xavier University (OH)
Founded in 1831, Xavier University is a Jesuit Catholic university located in Cincinnati, OH, also known as The Queen City. A Xavier education is based on 500 years of tradition and the idea that everyone is a unique individual, challenging and supporting all members of our community as we cultivate lives of reflection, compassion and informed action. We do this by creating learning opportunities through rigorous academic and professional programs integrated with co-curricular engagement for our approximately 5,000 undergraduates. In an inclusive environment of open and free inquiry, we prepare students for a world that is increasingly diverse, complex and interdependent.
Housing a Division I athletics program and over 170 clubs and organizations, it is hard for students to not get involved in campus life, 64% of them being able to hold leadership roles. Students have more than 90 undergraduate degree programs to choose from and nearly all students have participated in an internship, field experience, student teaching, or clinical placement by the time they graduate; which is why 93% of seniors have rated their educational experience at Xavier as being "good" or "excellent" as they prepare to take on the world after they graduate. Our 98% success rate of students starting full-time employment, enrolling in graduate school, or pursuing a year of service within 6 months of graduation is made possible by our commitment to educating the whole person, promoting the common good, and serving others.
