The academics here "can be tough at times" but "really small" class sizes make it "very easy for you to know your professor and receive extra help." The "warm and caring" teachers can "maintain strong professional bonds with the students" while feeling like people the students can come easily talk to. They "take an actual interest in you as a student" and "do what they can to help you grow as an individual and to succeed in life."
Above everything, students speak of the inclusive environment as being the most enabling aspect of Xavier, and how important it is to attend a school with "an outstanding community, built on love, support, and understanding." The intimate university has a real "rising tide lifts all boats" feel, and the vast majority of students "put a lot of stock into getting an education and… will actually turn in quality work that they put thought and effort into."
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
