Xavier is generally a polite and tolerant place. Groups like the Xavier Alliance ensure that GLBT students are treated equally and have a voice in the campus community.
Cincinnati is one of the most conservative cities in America. However, Xavier’s campus is often accused of being a liberal hotbed. The fact of the matter is that many of the actual students at Xavier come from conservative backgrounds, but the most loudly voiced opinions are considered to be progressively liberal. Both sides of the issues, however, are voiced in student organizations such as the College Republicans and College Democrats.
Xavier is a pricey place to go to school, so there is naturally going to be a major influx of upper-middle-class students. However, there are people from all types of backgrounds due to the large amount of financial aid Xavier gives.
Most Common Religions
Catholicism is the primary religion, due to the fact that XU is a Catholic Jesuit school. However, there are groups and organizations for just about every religion you could think of, where students can join to explore their faith.
Minority Clubs on Campus
There are a plethora of minority-focused clubs at Xavier which can be seen in full force on campus. Minority clubs such as the Black Student Association often sponsor and promote many of the activities on campus.
