Around campus, the Xavier Musketeers, or “Muskies,” have a way of being “All for one and one for all.”

For them it’s about the challenges, the triumphs and the insights that help mold you into the person you will become. It’s about expecting success and helping others find success, too.

Ultimately, it’s about being yourself – but becoming a part of something so much bigger.

They have an approach to education that sets them apart, which is focused on developing a whole person with an intelligent mind and a compassionate spirit. Along with togetherness, they believe in the power of Magis, which translates from Latin to mean “more.”  For them, it’s that more is always possible, and that when people come together, they are unstoppable.

It inspires them to do more in the tradition of learning, serving and teaching. They care about accomplishments, but also about each other, and give you the tools you need to live a life that truly matters.

In the face of a pandemic, Kendall King, who graduated in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in health services administration, brings the Xavier spirit to his career working at a Toledo hospital after interning in cancer research in Cincinnati.

“I grew up hearing about Xavier’s accomplishments, so I knew they must have been doing something right. It’s not just a school, it’s a community, and Xavier doesn’t just focus on one’s academics, but the person as a whole,” says King. “I loved Xavier because of the little kind gestures displayed on campus – holding the door for people, saying ‘bless you’ when someone sneezed, and greeting a classmate as they passed by – they’re all things that made life at Xavier great.”

It’s time to start your Xavier story. And remember: A Muskie never goes it alone.

All for One.
