3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Creighton University is a wonderful school and is a perfect fit for many students who attend it. For me, sometimes I wonder if a larger community would do me better. Creighton is a small to medium sized school and with that it lacks the diversity that larger schools have to offer. Many of the students at Creighton are like minded and come from similar backgrounds which make it hard to be lost in the diversity and continuously learn new things in and out of the classroom.

Overall Experience: Creighton's resources for finding jobs and employment after graduation is one of the things that they do best in my opinion. The resources that Creighton acquires is able to hold mulitple career fairs and career days throughout the year which companies and businesses from all over the world attend to attract incoming applicants and future employees. For a personal note, without Creighton's employent resources I would not have found my job at Fraser Stryker Law Firm as Runner/Assistant and therefore would not have gained experience in a possible future field and the funds to support myself.

Health & Safety: Creighton is always under watch by Public Safety, the security that is hired by Creighton. It is beneficial for all members of the school for safety and for smart decision making because Public Safety does not just deal with threats to safety from outsiders. Public Safety helps with students who are inebriated on campus and bringing them the care they need and also making sure the campus is under control.

Campus Housing: My freshmen year at Creighton was as fun and lively due to my dorm and my floormates. I lived in the Gallagher Hall on Creighton, which is the oldest dorm at Creighton but it is also the most fun. Gallagher may have some elevator issues and the smallest rooms, but the people that inhabit the dorm and the floors were some of the best people I have ever met and have ever had the chance to hang out with and live the college experience with. The social aspect alone would make me live in Gallagher again next year, although I am quite glad that I'm living in an apartment style dorm than the brick room.

Greek Life: Greek life at Creighton isn't as huge as state schools, especially for someone like me who was raised in Baton Rouge and has seen the intensity of some major fraternities and sororities at LSU and other SEC schools. The Greek life at Creighton is based around the goals of the fraternities and the sororities rather than the status that goes along with being a part of the Greek life. Most fraternities and sororities at Creighton do service around the Omaha area and benefit Creighton as a whole, but that doesn't mean that they aren't having any fun either.

Athletics: Creighton is most well known for their soccer, basketball, and baseball teams. That being said, in the past few years one has out shined the other two and that being the soccer team. In the past 2015-2016 season Creighton's Men's Team was ranked number one until the latter part of the season going into the National Tournament. The soccer team at every home game had the home stands and student sections packed to the fullest amount. Going to soccer games is one of my personal favorite events to attend at Creighton, the sounds and the liveliness of the students chanting and cheering something that is just fantastic to be a part of. The same goes for basketball and baseball as well. The baseball team is always supported by many cheering Bluejays especially since Omaha is the home of the College World Series. Creighton sporting and athletics are a worthwhile addition to my university.

Overall Experience: Creighton University is one of the best schools in the United States and especially in the Mid-West. It has been ranked number one multiple times by Newsweek magazine as the best Mid-Western university. This ranking is something that I fully agree with, not just due to my own bias experience at the school but due to many of my colleagues and friends opinions as well. The students and professors at Creighton are what makes it great. The activeness that the professors put into their classes to teach and enhance their students is something that many schools lack. It is a medium to small sized school giving its class sizes around 25 to 50 students on average in a given class. This gives the professors more time to make connections and give real intimate teaching time with individual students. This is an advantage to many state universities that have classes sizing over multiple hundreds. Creighton is a school that takes pride in its accomplishments and I am glad to take part in achieving greatness with this great school.

Drug Safety: Like any College really Alcohol is just part of campus life whether you are of age or not. Sometimes you can feel a little awkward by not going out and partying but you'll be sure to find others who feel the same way so never fear!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall I have enjoyed my experience at Creighton and value the tools and skills the University has taught me. I feel because of my time at Creighton I have gain a lot more confidence and have become a more well-rounded person.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Creighton is a pretty prestigious school so with the degree also comes the prestige that comes with the name of Creighton. The Alumni network is vast and is a great way to get internships, shadowing and job opportunities and the Career Center really helps students get connected to the Alumni.

Health & Safety: Up until this last semester. spring 2016, I have always felt pretty safe on Campus. This last spring we had several incidents of people being followed or harassed on campus but public safety has been doing a good job at trying to remedy these situations. Overall I am pretty satisfied with the job that Public safety has been doing, after all, Creighton is in the city of Omaha and cities are known for having a little more mischief than other places.

Campus Housing: Upperclassman housing is pretty great the only problem, though it could probably be said about any housing really, is that it is quite expensive. I would almost say too expensive for the quality of which we are paying for. The underclassmen housing definitely needs some updates. However what they lack in cleanliness or amenities they certainly make up for in the community feel they build.

Greek Life: Greek life is very different at Creighton than at other Universities. There are no houses because of a rule in Omaha so greek members are intertwined and spread out throughout campus living, though you can often find a few greeks sharing a house/apartment off campus. Also, Greek life at Creighton is very focused on the community and their specific philanthropy. I am a nongreek but I live with three other girls that all belong to different sororities and I would say they are some of the kindest girls I know and we don't look at each other differently because which sorority or in my case being a greek, we might be in.

3 College Senior

Athletics: While athletics are important to campus and are fun events to go to, they are not mandatory in order to feel at home at Creighton. There is a large variety of clubs and activities on Campus one can get involved in that are just as important as athletics.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Being at Creighton started out pretty rough for me, I struggled with justifying the expense of such a prestigious school and not feeling like I fit with the overall demographic of the student body. It wasn't until I got very ill at the end of my freshman year that I realized I was where I was supposed to be and that the expenses were worth the investment. While I was sick all my professors really were understanding and willing to work with me to stay up with my school work. To top it off one of my professors came to the hospital so I wouldn't be alone until my Mother could fly out to be with me. The kindness and thoughtfulness of most all the faculty and staff I have accoutered at Creighton has blown me away and has made Creighton feel like a home away from home.

Health & Safety: The campus is near some "rougher" parts of town, but Public Safety is always around and I've never heard anyone say they feel unsafe. I wish there were a few more blue lights stationed around campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Even though I didn't apply for it and didn't talk about it in my admissions essay, I received a scholarship based on my volunteer/community outreach work from my résumé. They actually looked all the way through my entire application packet.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I've lived in Deglman Hall and Davis Square. I liked them both, especially Davis Square (4-bedroom apartment style, with full kitchen, we had a outside corner room so it was a little bigger than most of the others.)

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I only belong to an honours fraternity, but the people I know who are in other Greek organisations are fine people, the same mix of personality types as non-Greeks on campus.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I'm not an organised sports person, but for those who are, it's great here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's not the cheapest (or the most expensive) but worth it!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You need to rate-my-professor your teacher before signing up. A lot of teachers here are biased and have favorites; including the TA's.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Creighton is only known in the midwest; its considered the ivy league of Nebraska. Other than that, applying to jobs elsewhere is difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There was someone who did public masturbation near the Heider College of Business. And a guy who attacked a girl as she was getting into Heider Hall.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is hell. Throughout this school year, we had 2 gas leaks and had to evacuate. We had to find our own place to live in.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
