The Xavier Story Project is more than a collection of historical materials. It's an ongoing effort by Xavier students, alumni, faculty, and staff, as well as a means to connect them to one another. It's also inspired a set of related projects that are reflected in Xavier's course offerings, on its campus, and in its student-alumni relations.
Documentary Film / Course
This course will give students the opportunity to follow the production of a documentary film while exploring the film’s topic and earning a screen credit for their resumés. First topic: the 1960 New Orleans school crisis—and why it’s still not over.
Xavier and New Orleans - A Virtual Tour
Start with a video tour of Xavier's history in New Orleans—from Algiers to Xavier Prep, to Frank Hayden Square, to "Spirit House," to landmarks on Xavier University's own campus, including the kinetic sculpture "Ancestral Legacy" and the famous Katharine Drexel Chapel.
Xavier Community Map
This online map shows where Xavierites live, all over the world. Students and alumni who join the map can also share photos, browse yearbooks dating back to 1927, and connect with one another.
