The Xavier Legacy lives on through our rich traditions

Our living and learning community is a close-knit family so it’ll be important for you to understand Xavier’s expectations, our traditions, and the meaning of being a TRUE XAVIERITE!


Commencement Day! The day every student dreams of where all of their hard work is celebrated and honored by receiving their degree!

Founded on the principle of Brotherhood and Sisterhood, these nationally-affiliated organizations stress scholarship, leadership, and service through well-balanced programming and campus traditions. The diverse programs presented by these organizations offer members and the campus at-large opportunities for learning, development, engagement and  social enjoyment.

Alumni from across the country are invited to come home to celebrate XULA Homecoming .  Activities  for homecoming weekend include the Xavier Gold Rush basketball game, distinguished alumni concert, the Jazz Ensemble concert, the joint student/alumni Celebration on the Yard, alumni receptions for specific academic departments and other special groups, the Alumni Mixer, the Alumni After Party, the tailgate brunch, the Homecoming Gala.

Thank you for helping me reach my goal of studying abroad in London. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to have such an amazing experience while working towards graduating from Xavier University of Louisiana.
