Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

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.
