Campus Visit


The recruitment calendar is published at least two weeks prior to your scheduled visit. Students sign up for interviews on a first-come, first-served basis. Schedules are monitored and we will notify you of overflow or insufficient sign-ups.

The morning of your visit we will provide resumes of all students to interview. Unofficial transcripts will be available, if desired, but should be requested in advance. Please call us if you would like your schedules prior to your visit. Because of the time factor and confusion that might arise in altering a schedule once a student has signed up, we also ask that if you must change the time of your interviews, please notify us as soon as possible.

We will be glad to assist you with handling arrangements (food, audio/visual equipment, etc.) for any pre-recruitment/information sessions. If you would like to publicize your visit in our student newspaper, e-mail the Xavier Herald ( or call 504-520-7474. 



University Center Room 305

Interviews are scheduled at half-hour intervals and begin at 9:00 a.m.; lunch is generally from 12:00 noon-1:00 p.m.; the last interview is at 4:30 p.m. We will be happy to make any adjustments to your schedule, as well as coordinate lunch meetings with faculty if desired. As you interview, we ask you to rate each candidate in the categories listed on our Interview Evaluation Form.

Exit Interview

Following your last interview, a staff member will be available to conduct an exit interview with you. At this time we would like to discuss your recruitment visit. We would appreciate copies of any follow-up correspondence sent to students, as we keep statistics on second interviews, job offers, etc. 

To set-up on campus interviews please email your request to Marian Minnard at

We hope your day will be a pleasant and successful one!
