I have been in the counseling program for a year now, and I could not be happier with the education I receive at SXU. Graduate school is hard, but honestly I was expecting that, and the professors are all really supportive as long as they see that you are mature and want to learn. Every professor I have had has been open to discussing not only material to pass the necessary exams, but also material that is useful for real-world practice. They have been committed to my education, and I greatly value that in a school.|
If you are looking for a school to party at, this is not your school. I attended the University of Illinois in UC for my undergrad, and there were parties there every night no matter where you went. Saint Xavier is all about education, and not so much with the social scene. There is one bar across the street, but anything else requires either a car or a lot of walking. This is a small school, and it is not located close to the heart of the city, despite the fact that it is still technically in Chicago.
Honestly, if you are going here for any of the education programs, this is a top-notch school, and if you really want to learn, it will be well worth the investment. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I have yet to have a negative experience of any kind at this school.

| I'm currently a graduate student at Saint Xavier University Chicago Campus and I would not reccommend their School Counseling Program to anyone. The faculty is rather small and consist of at least a good four professors. You may have one professor teaching three of the same clases offered during a particular semester, so if you're a full-time graduate student you may have to see the same professor for all three classes you're taking at that time. The professors not only teach, but they also advise the counseling students as well. This alone causes professors/advisors to bring their biases into the classroom. The program is very juvenile like, and the attendance policy is absurd. Most faculty only allows one excused absence, so if you get sick, if you have a family, or if you have a job, this program is not for you. If you are a working class adult and considering this program and your job is not within a ten mile radius of this school, you need not apply. This program is most suitable for privledged persons who may not have to work while in school, or younger adults who may have options of living with their parents while in school. |

| The staff for the University are not helpful at all. Financial Aid could care less about you and provides little help with anything. If anything, they mess up your account more than do good for you. I have had more problems with Logging in to the portal and receiving Financial Aid/Billing help in the past year than I did through my entire undergraduate education. I would never recomment this school to anyone. Professors are pretty good, but I have had better ones at my undegrad. This school is not worth the headache. |
