Xavier University Students Tell It Like It Is

"I generally do not party on campus. I sit at home alone drinking Natural Light and reflecting on my failed life, while my dogs and my cat stare at me with disgust and shame."
- Student's input from Nightlife section

"I really like Xavier because of the personal interaction in the classes and the amount of help that professors are willing to give. With this in mind, I love being here, as I am absolutely focused on my academics and where they will take me. Most everyone here is very friendly and outgoing. But, I do think that whether or not this is the right school for someone all depends on the personality of that student."

About the Author:
I always knew that someday I d want the opportunity to write a book. However, I never expected that I would be given that opportunity by the age of 20. Being able to dig deeper into Xavier University than I ever imagined has been a learning experience, to say the least.

Aside from my personal satisfaction in compiling this guide, I also hope that those who read this publication have a better sense of what life is like at Xavier. When I was a senior in high school, my main concern was that I felt like I had no idea what I was in for once I actually arrived at school. I wished I had some sort of magical book that told me things that you couldn t learn from brochures or guided tours. I hope that for the reader, this guide to Xavier becomes that magic book that helps you make what is undoubtedly one of the most important decisions a person can make at this point in their life.

I am still astounded by the new and interesting things I am exposed to on a daily basis at Xavier. In the past few years, I ve seen things and met people I would ve never imagined existed while growing up in the sheltered paradise that is my home near Baltimore, MD. I guess you can t learn to fly unless you jump out of the nest. Looking back, I can honestly say I m glad I took that leap.

As far as my background goes, I was born in raised in northern Baltimore County, Maryland. I graduated from Hereford High School and enrolled in Xavier that fall. My biggest writing influence and favorite author is F. Scott Fitzgerald. I was the senior sports writer at the Xavier University Newswire, where I covered basketball and published a column entitled Dave Rants. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball and golf, watching movies and ESPN, and taking as many naps as humanly possible.

I would also be a big moron if I didn t take this opportunity to thank some of the people who have helped me in one way or another in my infant writing career and through the composition of this guide Mom, Dad, Dan, Holly, Robin, and the rest of the family. Thanks to everyone at XU, including Nora, Jimmy, Josh, Ryan, Bob, Rabbi, Jay, Tony, Brian, T-Bag, the Way, Nick, Coccitto, Ann, Bobby Nachos, Farsad, everyone I m forgetting, as well as all those at the Newswire, especially Steve, Jackie, Lisa, the Moskos, and Dancox. Thank you to those who have supported me back east, including Kevin Cate, Ashley Boo, Bobby, Simms, Hartman, Casner, Joe, Erin, Sarah, Liz, Carrie, DiMayo, Kyle, and about a million others. And finally, thank you to everyone at College Prowler for giving an idiot college sports writer the chance of a lifetime.

This work is dedicated in loving memory to Tobias James Harring.

College Prowler is the needed link between students and guidebooks. It's students, writing for future students, about their student experience. It's like having an older sibling that went to the school and is telling you all about it.
