History

The first Catholic institution of higher learning in the Northwest Territory, Xavier was founded in 1831 as a men's college called the Athenaeum. Bishop John Purcell asked the Jesuits to take control of the school in 1840, and the name was changed to Xavier, after the 16th century Spanish Jesuit Saint Francis Xavier. Xavier is the fourth oldest Jesuit University and sixth oldest Catholic university in the United States. Initially located in downtown Cincinnati, Xavier moved to a location about 5 miles from downtown in 1919. Xavier initially included both a high school and a college. Saint Xavier High School and the college separated over a period of time in the early 20th century, with final financial separation coming in 1934. Xavier first admitted women in 1969. In recent years, a number of building projects have been completed on campus, including the Cintas Center, Schiff Family Conference Center, the Gallagher Student Center, and the restoration of a number of buildings. The current University President is Fr. Michael J. Graham, S.J. who was appointed by the Board of Trustees as the 34th President of the University in January, 2001. In 2006 Xavier began its year long 175th anniversary celebration.

Core curriculum

Undergraduate students attending Xavier must complete a significant number of distribution requirements that are more commonly known as the Core Curriculum. More than half the classes a student takes at Xavier are not in their major field. There are required courses in: Theology, Philosophy, Mathematics, Fine Arts, History, Physical Science, Literature, Foreign Language, and the Social Sciences. It provides students with the foundation necessary for academic success, a lifetime of continuous learning and career advancement. The Core Curriculum is a confluence of Jesuit ideals, and Great Books rigors. All Xavier students, upon completion of a bachelor degree, have read the Republic (Plato), Discourse on Method, and selections from the Bible among other original texts. Theology finds its scholars pursuing the understanding of and providing reasoned discourse of religion, spirituality and God or the gods. ... For other uses, see Philosophy (disambiguation). ...

Major requirements

All undergraduate students are required to complete the Core Curriculum (see above) and comply with departmental requirements. Business majors (from the Williams College of Business) are also required to complete the Business Core, which consists of courses in Accounting, Business Law, Economics, Finance, Human Resources, Information Systems, Management, Marketing, and Statistics (the Business Core occupies 35 credit hours). Business majors, therefore, are only required to take 18-21 hours in their chosen field (providing many students with an incentive to declare second major within the Williams College of Business). Students in the other colleges (the College of Social Sciences and the College of Arts and Sciences) generally have to complete at least 60 credit hours of courses within the major and electives within the College. 120 credit hours must be obtained to graduate with a B.A. or B.S. degree, and all students must achieve a 2.0 GPA minimum in their major course of study.


Certain majors; such as Politics Philosophy and the Public (PPP), Honors Arts Bachelor (HAB), and Philosophy require a written thesis and defense before a selected committee. Philosophy also requires a written comprehensive exam.


Grading scale

In 2005 Xavier switched to the plus minus grading system, after using the simpler A, B,C,D,F scale since the university's inception. However, in addition to the standard letter grades, Xavier offers professors the option to assign various non-traditional grades, such as VF (Vanished Failure) for students who do not attend class regularly. The university also offers students the option to "Audit" courses; that is, to take the class, but have any passing grade not computed into the student's Grade Point Average.


Xavier has also switched to a "Quality-Point" conversion scale to compute Grade Point Averages. The Quality Points are assigned such that each 1/3 of a grade is the equivalent to 1/3 Quality Point per credit hour. For example, a grade of B would rate 3 Quality Points per credit hour (thus, for a 3-hr course, the student would gain 9 Quality points), while a score of B+ would rate 3 and 1/3 Quality Points per credit hour (so that same 3-hr class would yield 10 Quality Points). The total number of Quality Points earned is divided by the total number of credit hours attempted (excepting those officially Withdrawn from consideration -- where a grade of W was assigned) to compute the student's Grade Point Average.

Campus

The Gallagher Student Center
The Gallagher Student Center

The campus covers approximately 125 acres and features both residential and academic malls. The Gallagher Student Center, a general gathering place for students and visitors, is located in the center of the main residential mall. The Cintas Center, where the Musketeers host their basketball games, and the home of the Hoff Student Dining Center, is located adjacent to that same main residential mall. Dormitories on the main residential mall include Brockman Hall (solely for freshmen), Buenger Hall (the main Honors housing), and Husman and Kuhlman Halls, which mainly house general freshmen and sophomore students. The majority of upper-class and graduate students choosing to live on-campus are housed in University-owned apartments, either adjacent to the main academic mall, or across campus on the other side of the academic mall. Most upper-class students, though, seek off-campus housing due to the uncertainty of obtaining a University-owned apartment in the housing lottery.

The Academic Mall features Hailstones Hall (which houses the Williams College of Business, along with Professor offices and classrooms for both graduate and undergraduate classes), Alter Hall (a general use building which features Kelly Auditorium, the largest instruction room on the campus; computer labs open for general student use; a language lab; classrooms; and the Offices of the Bursar, the Registrar, Student Success and Retention, and the CAPS program), the Lindner Family Physics Building (home to science labs, classrooms, and Professor Offices); Logan Hall, Hinkle Hall, Albers Hall, Schmidt Hall, and Schott Hall (the tallest building on campus), which house both Professor offices and some classrooms; Edgecliff Hall (home to the Music Department); and the McDonald Library.


Between the Academic Mall and the main Residential Mall lies Bellarmine Chapel, home to the Bellarmine (Catholic) Parish in Cincinnati. This serves as the campus chapel and holds daily masses which, though open to the public, are frequented mainly by students. While Sunday morning and early afternoon masses are attended almost exclusively non-students, the Sunday Night Mass: the 10 p.m. Mass, is heavily attended by students, and finding a non-student or faculty member in attendance is rare. The 10 p.m. Mass is a popular gathering for students, and often leads to long conversations following the mass, and late-night meals between professors, students, and Jesuits-in-Residence (including Fr. Graham, the University's current President). It is even rumored that some local eateries extend their Sunday-night hours past even their Saturday-night hours during the academic year.


On the Opposite side of Victory Parkway from both the Academic and Residential Malls is the Athletic Mall. This is where the Armory, Hayden (Baseball) Field, Corcoran (Soccer) Field, Schmidt Fieldhouse, Elet Hall, Joseph Hall and the O'Connor Sports Center are located.

Xavier fielded an NCAA Division I football team until the 1973 season. The absence of the team led to the creation of the popular t-shirt "Xavier Football: Undefeated since 1973." However, the sport has made a comeback at the university. In 2006, a club football team was formed and was an immediate success despite losing every game in its inaugural season. In 2007, Xavier also led in the creation of the Midwestern Club Football Conference, formed out of club teams at Miami (OH), Marquette University, Xavier, and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. On September 30, 2007 Xavier won their first football game in 34 years, defeating Miami's (OH) club team 13-7.
