Cougs in the Community

Saint Xavier University student-athletes do more than just compete in games and practices. They are also hard-working students who contribute and give back to the community. They have pride in themselves and their programs and they try to be leaders and role models for both their teammates and others. Saint Xavier University is also part of the NAIA Champions of Character program with core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership. This page has been put together to display the good things that the Cougar student-athletes do outside of the game, practices and stats.  Below are some links to examples of how our teams have given back to the local community over the years.
