Xavier University of Louisiana

Xavier University of Louisiana is Catholic and historically Black. The ultimate purpose of the University is the promotion of a more just and humane society. To this end, Xavier prepares its students to assume roles of leadership and service in society. This preparation takes place in a pluralistic teaching and learning environment that incorporates all relevant educational means, including research and community service.So that they will be able to assume roles of leadership and service, Xavier graduates will be: prepared for continual spiritual, moral, and intellectual development; liberally educated in the knowledge and skills required for leadership and service; and educated in a major field so that they are prepared to complete graduate or professional school and to succeed in a career and in life. Our current Student Government President illustrates the unique qualities and strengths of our institution.A Message from the SGA President On behalf of the students of Xavier University of Louisiana, it is my pleasure to invite you to consider a college experience that will change and enhance your life forever. Xavier alumni are known across the world for being exceptional doctors and lawyers, educators and journalists, philanthropists, research scientists and the like. I can assure you that choosing Xavier is still a great choice indeed. As a student and president of the Student Government Association (SGA) I know that Xavier has thoroughly prepared me for my career while nurturing me spiritually and socially. The university's founder, St. Katharine Drexel, understood the necessity to provide minority students with a quality education - second to none - and the skills needed to be better leaders AND servers, in order to help build a more just and humane society. What better time than now, to become a part of New Orleans - one of Americas most unique cities - while gaining one of the best college educations in the world? Finally, take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities that Xavier provides you. Higher education is not only about gaining intellectual knowledge, but acquiring social and community skills as well. Extra-curricular activities are a great way to meet new people, find your place, and to create wonderful memories of your time here. At Xavier we offer a wide array of clubs, organizations and teams to suit the needs and interests of the student body. Some of these clubs include: Peer Dean Association, Commuter Student Association, Xavier Activities Board, Jazz Band, NAACP, Mens and Womens Basketball, Business Achievers Club, MAX (Mobilization at Xavier) and the Pan-Hellenic Council. Get involved, make new friends, create wonderful memories, but most of all, have fun!
