One of the most prestigious institutions of liberal arts in the United States, Xavier University is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Founded in the year 1831, the university happens to be the 6th oldest Catholic University and the 4th oldest Jesuit University in the US. It was originally established as a men’s college in downtown Cincinnati adjacent to St. Francis Xavier Church on Sycamore Street. However, in 1840, the Society of Jesus seized control over the Athenaeum upon the request of Bishop John Baptist Purcell and renamed it as St. Xavier College in honor of St. Francis Xavier, a Jesuit missionary in the 16th century.
In 1912, St. Xavier College shifted to its current location in Norwood, about five miles north of downtown Cincinnati. Later in 1919, St. Xavier High School and Xavier College became separated officially and it was only in 1930 that the name of the school derived its current name, the Xavier University.
The university campus spreads over 190 acres of land in Cincinnati City (Norwood neighborhood) and features Academic halls and Residential halls lined by the old campus in the west and the extending east campus. The Bellarmine Chapel and the Gallagher Student Centre are located right in the middle of the campus. Xavier also takes part in athletics including baseball, basketball, football, and so on. The university also takes pride in being a part of the BIG EAST Conference with fellow private schools Creighton, Butler, Georgetown, DePaul, Providence, Seton Hall, Marquette, Villanova, and St. John’s.
