5 College Sophomore

Transportation: It is 5 minutes tops from the airport and people are from everywhere and willing to drive you

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is pretty typical housing for a college

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It truly is focused on more than just the social aspects

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Though Omaha can sometimes have crime the campus itself feels very safe

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: there's a lot of cool dining options near campus. Creighton is near old market so if it's warm you could take a walk to eat a good mean. Otherwise, having a car is key to getting a good meal.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Wifi can be slow. You definitely need a personal computer. There are computer labs, but it's just easier to get things done with a computer of your own. Our IT department doesn't seem to do anything, but that may just be how IT departments are.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I hear of people doing drugs but Ive never actually seen it happen myself. and I don't feel pressure to do drugs either. No one forces you to do anything. You may feel awkward if you don't drink, but drugs are a different matter

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman housing is the worst, but once you become a sophomore you get a little more space and privacy. Still, facilities aren't always at their best. The water temperature fluctuates all the time and the heater doesn't even do it's job.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Creighton models their rules to fit Jesuit standards which is what makes it so strict? I don't know... We have to check people into dorms after 7:00 which is way too early. Girls and guys cannot be in the same room, or even the same floor, past 1:00 on weekdays and 3:00 on weekends -- which makes studying with classmates hard because you can't just have a late night cram/study session on your floor (floors are generally separated by gender) or in your room. It just seems like residence life is playing big brother rather than allowing students to mature and become adults on their own.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, off-campus housing can be really affordable. You aren't allowed to live off campus until junior year and although it is slightly more expensive, living on campus is really convenient. You would probably need a car to live off campus, unless you live in the apartments really close to campus -- which gives you less living options.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I didn't rush myself but my friends who did have really enjoyed their greek experience. I wouldn't say there's a huge difference between greeks and non-greeks, being GDI is just GDI. You can be happy either way.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: For the most part, everything closes by 11 pm. If you don't have a car, life in Omaha is extremely boring. Drinking every weekend gets old, but if you don't drink then you don't do anything. It's pretty much the best place to study and the best place to go insane from boredom.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone is super supportive of our athletic teams.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never been in danger myself, but there have been numerous reports of students being mugged near campus. Walking alone off campus can be pretty scary, but on campus feels pretty safe even if it's dark.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in the winter months can be pretty brutal.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am a relatively new Greek, but I can already see that there is a division between Greeks and non-Greeks. We don't really look down on non-Greeks, but there's definitely separation between the two groups. Greek life is a pretty big time commitment, especially when first joining, so it becomes difficult to spend time with non-Greek friends. Now that I've joined a sorority, I find myself associating more with people in sororities/fraternities rather than non-Greeks.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: For the most part, Public Safety does a great job of keeping students safe. There are certain edges of campus that are sketchy once in a while. You might not want to walk alone. Otherwise, campus safety is pretty good.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: On-campus housing is wonderful. The only down side is how costly it is. But I attend a private university, so that is to be expected. Otherwise, housing if perfect!

3 College Junior

Diversity: My school has quite a large Hawaiian student population. There is a fairly decent mix of other ethnicities, but it's not as significant as it might be on other campuses.

College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Since I am unfamiliar with crime statistics on campus, I do not believe that I could provide a fair rating. The "Creightonian" newspaper, however, does provide a weekly account of safety concerns and/or violations to keep students and staff informed.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The general cost of anything in Omaha is quite reasonable. Not everyone offers student discounts, but most places are still affordable without discounts. We have a great variety of chain restaurants and local ethnic cuisine from which to choose.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Since I do not live on campus, I cannot fairly rate campus security or all of its policies.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not yet applied for an internship.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Thus far, I am pleased with the Theology program; I've had great professors with real-life experience either in archeology or ministry. If I could do it over again, I would. My career goals are to travel to the Middle East to participate in archeological projects and publish new discoveries. My only concern is the opportunities to pursue my goals, but with the help of the professors, I am confident that I will have the skills to succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: CU has open doors to all faiths. With the attraction of med school, EMS and athletics (not just Theology), Creighton attracts a very diverse student body.

Whether there’s something in the water, brainwashing sound bites being pumped through the heating ducts, or it’s genuine, Creighton students overwhelmingly seem to believe they are involved in a passionate love affair with their college. It’s tough to blame them, though. You not only take classes, you really grow and develop with the school. The professors, and even administrators, will guide you and offer you support at all times, encouraging you to seek them out in office hours to help you reach your potential.

In some ways, Creighton students seem to fear leaving just because the place is such a fairytale university. Students actually seem to care about one another and the world. As one student said, the Jesuit spirit of service and concern for others really seems to pass from students and teachers, who truly care about one another. Anyone who wants a school where it’s impossible to be just a number would find that Creighton is a No. 1 choice.
