"The program was a direct entry nursing program and professors did an excellent job preparing students for the real world of nursing practice. From the first semester, students were required to attend clinicals at different health care organnizations, in and around the city of Cincinnati. Due to the fact that the program was Master's level, leadership was emphasized in both didactic and practical aspects of course work. Students graduated ready to take the Clinical Nurse Leader certification exam."

"Xavier University does a really excellent job in preparing students for future success. During my time there, I was able to get real world professional experience, connect with a mentor, and have one-on-one conversations with professors. Instructors are very personable and are interested in connecting with students. The education is well rounded, with required classes in all major areas of study. Overall, I would definitely recommend Xavier."

"Great school for education, but not socially. I came in pursuing a degree in biomedical sciences with a dream of medical school. That changed multiple times, but the school was supportive throughout. I actually decided to transfer closer to home and for a graduate program I thought would better fit my needs. The merit scholarship awarded is very considerate and helped immensely with the cost of education I did come for the well rounded education, but the amount of "flags" and certain requirements can be quite overwhelming."

"Xavier University is a gorgeous campus. The core curriculum allows students to learn outside of their major of study and also encourages networking with students that are not in their field of study. While Xavier is a catholic university, it is welcoming to students of all religious backgrounds. The nursing program utilizes all of the surrounding teaching hospitals in the Cincinnati area in an effort to prepare students for their career. The tuition is expensive."

"I finished my bachelor's degree at St. Xavier University and the small class size was the best feature of the school. The largest class size I had was about 30 students. In the upper level classes, 15-20 students was the norm. The classes are also taught by actual professors, not TAs. I majored in History, and currently work in an unrelated field, so my degree did not influence my earning potential. However, I did find the academics at St. Xavier to be excellent and I will be going back in the Spring to start their MBA program."

"Xavier University gave me a comprehensive education. Xavier students are required to take many CORE classes that require developing critical thinking skills. Although it was a lot to balance, looking back, I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to learn about so many different topics within each class."

"The atmosphere of the school is very welcoming. The class sizes are generally small so getting to know your professors was probably the most valuable experience of Xavier. The professors were willing to help inside and outside of the classroom to ensure the best education possible. The professors, as well as the students, were diverse in every race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. The core classes create a more well-rounded student, one that is a better listener and more tolerant to others' opinions. Academics was always a priority, even during basketball season, but the school went far and beyond with club sports and clubs which enhanced the opportunity to give back to the community and support each others' education. I honestly can say I don't believe I would have received the same education anywhere else."

"I was disappointed that this so-called "Catholic" college was full of professors who enjoyed attacking Christianity. The small size of the campus also failed to provide the "homey" feel I was hoping for. To make matters worse, unless you're a business major, the college does little to help you with job placement: its career center merely shows you how to use Indeed.com."
