Xavier University of Louisiana is one of the
best schools in the nation. And I'm going to express
why I can say this. I was from a BAD NEIGHBORHOOD in the BRONX gutta of New York. I did
NOT want to leave New York. I did NOT want
to leave the NORTH. and I did NOT want to
go to a BLACK school. So for Xavier to make
me proud I left, means SO MUCH.
Xavier administration vary. The teachers are great and supportive. The
school itself has rules that keep you in check and
the financial aid office keeps you on your toes. People
who complain are not ready for the real world. This
school teaches you how to stand up for yourself and
pay attention to the fine print. You learn to read
and read well, and not just take what is fed
I learned that there
is so much diversity within the Black community. You have
all kinds of socioeconomic status, cultural ideas, religions, food likings,
and even TASTES in music differ. It was refreshing to
be greeted by so many accents. I had no idea
how different people were state by state.
When Katrina happened and I went to New York University
and The University of Illinois at Springfield for my “off
semester” I appreciated Xavier so much more. I did not
feel like a NUMBER at Xavier. People cared who I
was. Even the JANITORS and CAFETERIA WORKERS knew me by
name at Xavier and cared enough to give me a
ride if they saw me u stuck at Bourbon Street.
Xavier University teaches you how to time manage. You learn
what you can handle and what you cannot.
was NOT a good student in high school and skipped
classes alot. When I got to Xavier, they kept me
on my toes. I went to a party every weekend,
had TWO part-time jobs and graduated with a 3.76 GPA
- MAgna Cum Laude. I'm in love with Xavier for
literally turning my life around. They turned this “ghetto New
Yorker” into a sophisticated and articulate professional.
who has anything bad to say about Xavier did not
spend their time their wisely. And if you don't believe
me, ask the complainers what their GPAs are??? Ask them
what extracurriculars they were involved in?? There are problems at
every school. But only Xavier teaches you to be proud
of being Black and being accomplished. My teachers were BLACK
PhDs...I can't even find that in my GRADUATE school...
I love XU....and no one's unkind remarks can top my
love for what I got out of Xavier.
