By: ~*Naja Rabon*~
Xavier University was found by Saint Katherine Drexel and was found in 1831. Xavier is the only historically black Catholic University in the U.S. Xavier has 70% African American students, but Caucasians go there also. There is about 3,338 students all together who attend at Xavier. Students have to complete sixty-six hours of liberal arts courses in English, Literature, Fine Arts, Foreign Languages, History, African American Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Philosophy, Theology, and Social Sciences.
There is a whole list of famous graduates, but I’m only going to name a couple such as Jim Bunning who is in the Hall of Fame in Baseball, Dennis E. Eckhart- a former Congress man, and Patricia L. Herbold who is a United States Ambassador to Singapore.
Xavier has Men’s Basketball, Men’s Cross Country, Men’s Football Team, Women’s Track, Women’s Volleyball, and Women’s Tennis.
Xavier’s football team’s name is Xavier Gold Rush.
