Transfer Student Testimonials
Saint Xavier University students speak about their transition to SXU as transfer students.
During my first semester after transferring to SXU, I didn't know anybody on campus, and I felt like a visitor. I didn't know much about the school, didn't have roots established here and didn't have a sense of belonging. Throughout my following semesters, I decided to make an effort to be more involved. I became an employee on campus, joined two different Honors programs, became treasurer of the Pre-Law Association, traveled to Ireland through an SXU study abroad program and participated in a course trip to Yellowstone. Along the way, I've made friends, coworkers, mentors and clients! Making an active decision to become a member of SXU, rather than a visitor, was the best choice I have ever made, and it has transformed my experience here. Now, I truly can say SXU is my home!
In my time as a student at SXU, I found a supportive environment where faculty and staff are committed to my success. Because of the tremendous amount of support, I have held two leadership roles and have worked with various nonprofits. Instead of fighting for an opportunity to grow, a lot of these opportunities were offered to me directly. It was a pleasant change, because it showed SXU's commitment in making me a better student and a better citizen for the world.
I can honestly say that choosing SXU to complete my bachelor's degree was the right
decision for me.
The mission and traditions of the Sisters of Mercy makes SXU a special place to be a student. On top of receiving a quality Catholic education, I have had many opportunities to express my devotion to service. At SXU, I am the vice president of the Student Veteran Alliance, a member of Tau Sigma and a member of the Student Nursing Association. Through these organizations my peers and I raised money and created care packages for the troops overseas. In other service-oriented projects, we have collected toys for ill children at Advocate Hope Hospital around the holidays. There are ample opportunities for anybody to serve others here at Saint Xavier University.
