About XULA

Xavier University is a mid-sized university which, as one of the nation’s up-and-coming universities is growing and improving in numerous ways.

Located in New Orleans, Louisiana, Xavier is a traditional liberal arts college that offers bachelor’s degree programs in the arts, humanities, math and sciences.

Master’s degree programs are offered in education, with such specializations as educational counseling and secondary teaching. One example of Xavier’s growth is in its development of a fast-track teacher-education program which takes less than two years to complete.

A historically black, Catholic university, Xavier still maintains a strong commitment to the African-American community. However, they have in recent years expanded to include students of all races and religions.

Xavier’s geographical focus has also shifted. While students used to come mainly from the New Orleans region they are now traveling from as many as forty or so states to attend Xavier.

Xavier has also earned more and more recognition for its research activities. Receiving top rankings and funding from national foundations, Xavier continues to expand its research in the sciences.

Student services at Xavier consist of career counseling, job-search assistance, personal counseling, health services, residence life and a campus ministry which sponsors religious and spiritual activities.

There are also numerous social and recreational activities including sports, community service groups, and academic, professional and enrichment clubs. Xavier’s men’s basketball team is particularly well-known, having competed in the NCAA Tournament a number of times.

Financial aid offerings at Xavier include scholarships, loans, grants and work-study, which are available to those who qualify.
