Join SXU for We Are SXU Day March 25
Saint Xavier University's (SXU) annual day of giving – We Are SXU Day – will be celebrated March 25. As a 24-hour, participation-driven effort, we join together to celebrate nearly 175 years of providing a quality Mercy education to our accomplished students.
Giving to the Saint Xavier Fund impacts change across the University—your generosity can help to provide life-changing scholarships, create new internship and networking opportunities, organize mission and service trips and design new spaces across campus that enhance student knowledge and success, like the Human Performance Lab or STEM studio.
"The scholarships I have received helped me to be able to pursue my dream of moving to a big city and starting my new life. Scholarships have given me a push to do better. I was given an opportunity to get a better education—something I wouldn't have been able to do without these scholarships," said Brianne Lewis '19, one of many scholarship recipients who've achieved excellence.
The power of any donation, regardless of the amount, makes an incredible impact on the University. Improving our participation rates contributes to our rankings for prominent organizations like U.S. News & World Report. These rankings put our University on the map for prospective students who are looking for high-quality education with leadership and service opportunities to help them flourish.
We Are SXU Day will be filled with plenty of fun events to connect the SXU community in pride. The day will kick off with an event in the diner, where students can come together to take selfies at a Selfie Station, listen to music and eat snacks. In the afternoon, students can attend an all-campus photo and ice cream social on the front steps of the Warde Academic Center. The Mission Day Awards Ceremony, which highlights the University's educational mission and focuses on the goal to serve wisely and compassionately, will take place in the Butler Reception Room. All day long, the SXU community can share why they give and encourage others to do the same by using the hashtags #WeAreSXU and #SomosSXU on social media.
SXU calls its entire community, alumni and friends to participate in We Are SXU Day. All Cougars can come together to spread the word, show their pride and share their stories. Put on your scarlet and gray and unite with Cougars across the world!
