"The core lessons I learned at XUTV, from camera work to editing to the basics of on-air reporting, have shaped my entire career. The teachers are so willing to give you personalized attention."​

President, Xavier Chapter of ACDA / Intern, Cincinnati Boychoir

Studying music at Xavier has been such a great experience because I receive specialized attention in intimate classroom settings and get to sit down and have coffee with my professors and talk about music. We develop close relationships and work as a team to be successful.

Xavier’s Music and Science Departments are to thank for helping me become a better medical student, a better soldier, and a better, more actively contributing member of society.

Double Major-Art & English

The art department at XU offered me every possible opportunity to learn and create. I graduated with a true and deep appreciation for the art world, and with the skills to present and place my own work into it. I honestly believe it is hard to find teachers who are more invested in their students' progress than those in the XU art department.

Visual Art Teacher / Mt. Healthy High School

I loved being part of a school where I was on first-name basis with the chair of my department. The faculty truly invest in their students, challenging us to think, feel, talk, write, and create like artists.
