3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Within the dorms its pretty easy to get away with drinking if you're not super loud. But it's probably best to get off campus. Visitation's are fairly strict because after a certain time you must check people in. But I guess its best for safety!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of things to do in Omaha and they are fairly easy to get to from campus. Theres plenty of shops and places to eat in the Old Market area. However there are not many that are walking distance when it gets cold so either you have to catch a ride from a friend or take a taxi.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Almost everyone participates in some sort of sport.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The only problem is that the off-campus dining options aren't too close to the university.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Great sciences and pre-health programs.

Campus Strictness: I personally am a type of student who likes strict

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school is fair. They deal with each case personally and they are just about it. They are a little more strict than public or state campuses, but I think that's a good thing.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've seen campus security around, but I don't feel like they make the campus feel safe, it's more like they are just there. I have never felt threatened on campus, but I don't think I've put myself in situations where I would.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not part of Greek life, but from what I can see, it is a great way to network and the sororities/ fraternities do great things that give back to the community.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is very accepting. I am a minority but I have never felt like I was, nor have any of the other people I talk to feel like a minority. The school is open to the difference in the people. There are people with all sorts of different religious background, race, culture, or sexual orientation.

Transportation: Old Market is within walking distance, but anything more is out of range. The campus shuttle is great for getting across campus or around campus, but not much else. Taxis can get a little pricy unless you split the cost with a few others. Lastly, the convenience of the Zip cars are great, but it can get a little pricy.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I know that there are RAs that go around and have caught some students using drugs. But I never felt pressured in to it or that it was a prominent thing on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure about the hosing options, I haven't looked at it, but from what I see, most people live on campus unless they live around the campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Midwest weather is very fickle. The afternoon could be nice and warm and the evenings would be freezing. It wasn't that bad, but sometimes it made it hard to go to class.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved dorming on campus. the only thing was that I was in the oldest dorm and so the building and the resources were a little worn down, but it was manageable. The people were wonderful and the RAs were helpful and responsible.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm planning on switching my major. I went to Creighton for pharmacy, but I realized that it wasn't what I wanted to do. Creighton set up shadowing and a symposium for pharmacy students and I came to realize that it wasn't for me. Creighton is helping me to find something that I enjoy doing.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't done any interning yet, but I know that Creighton had some programs that would help students shadow and intern in their desired fields, and it was easy to talk to the school to have that set up.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't particularly go out, but I know that there are things to do if I did want to go out.

Academics: Creighton sets their students up to succeed, and not just academically. They help you network, adjust to the college life, and help you make sure you are going in to the correct career.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not personally involved in any Greek life at the moment, though I am considering joining Alpha Psi Omega, which is a co-ed theatre honours fraternity. From what I can tell, all of Creighton's Greek organisations are respectful and pleasant to everyone, members and non-members alike.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Pretty cliquey from an outside opinion

3 College Senior

Nightlife: You can find parties if you look

1 College Senior

Health & Safety: Right on the border of the sketchy part of town, I've had friends who were mugged and sexually abused not too far off of campus. Walk in groups. It's a must. A good amount of girls carry those pink pepper sprays with them

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: It's a college campus, there's gonna be drugs and booze.

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.
