SGA Seeks to Help Flood Victims

Dear Xavierites,

Many of our Xavier students, faculty, staff, and alumni families have been affected by the recent flooding in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas of Louisiana. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have suffered loss during this difficult time. We want people that were affected by the flooding to contact the Student Government Association (,as we will be organizing groups to assist in cleaning and gutting homes. We ask that all requests be submitted to the SGA by Sept. 20, 2016. The Xavier community understands that a loss of this magnitude can have lasting effects. It is natural to experience heightened and unexpected emotional responses. The Counseling and Wellness Center is available to students, faculty, and staff.

Please contact them at: 504-520-7315 or visit the St. Joseph Student Academic and Health Resource Center, 2nd floor, Room 202. You may also visit their website here .Affected students can apply for Xavier’s newly instituted XSCAPE Fund at http://


God Bless America, and God Bless Xavier University of Louisiana.
