Join the Excitement of "We Are SXU Day" on March 27
In celebration with Saint Xavier University's (SXU) annual tradition of Mission Day, SXU's first day of giving -- We Are SXU Day -- will be on March 27, 2019. This event is a 24-hour participation-driven effort, celebrating 173 years of providing a quality Mercy education to our deserving and talented students. We Are SXU Day will also serve as an opportunity for past President's Scholarship Celebration attendees and donors to continue to provide support as the day of giving will be held in place of the annual gala.
By giving to the Saint Xavier Fund, your generosity can impact change across the University by providing life-changing scholarships; developing new internship and networking opportunities, as well as organized mission and service trips; and creating new spaces across campus conducive to students' quality education, such as the new Human Performance Lab and STEM Studio.
"As a first generation college student, having a scholarship has allowed me to be a trailblazer for other family members, women and minorities alike who are interested in obtaining a higher education," said Alondra Fonseca '18, one of many students and alumni who have shared their stories of the opportunities SXU scholarships have helped provide.
SXU is calling on its entire campus community, alumni and friends to participate. We Are SXU Days is more than an opportunity to make a gift but a day where all Cougars can spread the word, show their pride and share their stories. Whether student, alumni, faculty, staff or family, every member of the SXU community is encouraged to take to social media and share how SXU has made an impact in your life.
Every story you tell and every gift you make also contributes to the rising of SXU's rankings with such prominent organizations as U.S. News & World Report. These rankings put the University on the map with prospective students as they look for a high-quality education with leadership and service opportunities that will activate the best in each of them.
