Xavier University is an Ohio private Jesuit university founded in 1831. The school ranked #2 in US News's 2008 "Universities-Master's (Midwest): Top Schools" list.
Xavier was founded by Bishop Edward Fenwick as Athenaeum, intended to be a college dedicated to religion and liberal arts. The Jesuits took responsibility for the college in 1840, naming it Saint Xavier College, in honor of Saint Francis Xavier: one of the original members of the Society of Jesus. The first president was John A. Elet.
