SXU hosts 2018 FOCUS summer sessions for incoming first-year students


Are you ready to start your journey at Saint Xavier University (SXU)? The first step to becoming an SXU first-year student is to fully immerse yourself in SXU culture through one of our FOCUS sessions! FOCUS is a mandatory summer orientation program offered for incoming SXU students.

Offered each summer, FOCUS is designed to make the adjustment to college life a breeze! Whether you plan on living on campus or commuting, FOCUS will provide you with vital resources and information intended to make your transition into a college student as easy as possible.

At FOCUS, you will receive your fall class schedule, attend valuable information sessions, learn about the SXU Catholic, Mercy heritage, find out about resources and support services on campus, meet some of your classmates and even spend a night on the SXU campus!

Parents and guardians of first-year students are highly encouraged to attend FOCUS as well. Parent Orientation takes place on Day 1 of each FOCUS session. This orientation serves to provide parents and guardians with information on various aspects of academic and student life at SXU. Parents and guardians can take this opportunity to gain more information on academics, student housing and financial aid.

FOCUS is highly beneficial for all incoming first-year students. There is no better way to experience all that SXU has to offer than seeing it for yourself!
