"I am interested in epidemiology because of the opportunities at Xavier University such as interning at New Orleans Health and Hospital in the Genetic Disease Young Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program. The department focuses on getting Louisiana children in all parishes who are on Medicaid healthcare plan tested for lead poisoning. Medicaid reported that 70% of the infants on their healthcare plan are tested for lead poisoning. Their policy states that infants are to be tested within one year after birth. The database HLPPSS showed me that most of the infants on Medicaids list were not tested for lead poisoning. To conduct further analysis, I used Medicaids medical eligibility system to see the infants identification number (RID) and the insurance plan the infants were on. The list of infants that I reviewed from Medicaid were verified in 2014 and 2015. The 1% increase showed that the intervention from the department was effective because it lowered the risk of developmental delay and learning disabilities among children in Louisiana. This experience has led me to believe that Xavier University really pursues it mission which is to promote a more just and humane society by preparing its students to assume roles of leadership and service in a global society. Xavier has made an impact on my life so much that I decided to further my education at Charles Drew University. Another institution that cultivates the minds of students of color. I believe that the connections these universities have position students for where they are now and where life is going to take them. I thank Xavier University for being a stepping and a guide to my future."

"The Political Science program at Xavier University of LA is phenomenal!! The guidance and knowledge that each student receives is priceless. Faculty and staff are highly qualified. They make you feel as if you are their only student in the class. I suggest that each student build a close relationship with the Department Head, Dr. Pamela Moore. She is a gem! She exemplifies the quality of education and faculty that Xavier offers. The networking abilities of Xavier is astonishing! The respect and curriculum of this university is known WORLDWIDE! It has continued to be raked #1 in the Nation on educating African American Doctors. That is a stellar accomplishment!"

"Xavier leads the nation in placing African-Americans in medical school. And while the school is known for its science majors, I have to say that I was pleased with the communications department in my time there. Many of us went on to careers in communications, including several people, along with myself, who became print reporters. We also had several people work in radio and television, as well as PR. I say this to say that the school really has some strong departments. It was also a very close-knit community. Basically, I'm a proud XU alum."

"Small school environment. Professors are very helpful and will work with you. Financial aid is a hass but they will work with you also. One secret I wish I had knew in my years going there was to speak with the person who gives out the scholarships. No matter your gpa, they can and will help you."
