Editor’s Notebook

I run. I don’t run very far, nor do I run very fast. And I try to run early in the morning before the sun comes up so it’s dark and no one can see me sweating and swearing and gasping for breath like there’s only two oxygen molecules left on the planet.

Life’s Choices

I’m sitting in an office face to face with Vytautus Bieliauskas, the psychology department’s distinguished professor emeritus and retired chair, and he’s telling me an incredible story—his own—of escape and survival in pre-war Lithuania. It’s spring of 2002, and we’re talking about a story for Xavier magazine about Xavier’s involvement with two of Lithuania’s former Jesuit high schools that had been forced to shut down during the 50 years of Soviet occupation.

Student Reflects On Xavier Profs

Every day that I go to class, I know I am getting a great education. Why? Because this is Xavier, and the professors are amazing. No seriously. They are not only great educators but great people as well, living out the Jesuit maxim, known as Cura Personalis, to educate the whole person, not just the mind.
