5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I might've been lucky, but my time in the dorms were always nice and everyone was friendly.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is a Greek life, but I don't worry about it too much.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Two main gyms and a decent sized soccer stadium, there's always something for you to do.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Food can be good or not, the people are always diverse and interesting.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe on campus no matter what time of day it is. Our campus isn't too big or too small but I never feel afraid to go anywhere on my own.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Personally, it was a rough learning environment for the field I'm in. Specifically, the worst experience I had was in the second semester general biology. Our professor didn't seem like she really knew her material because there was many unclear, confusing, and clashing information taught. She also didn't seem like she cared about any of us. She is known as the weed out teacher. Other than that, there were a few other professors who really knew the material they were teaching. But, personally I feel like majority of the professors I've had this year, didn't try to get to know their students and didn't seem like they actually cared about us.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've gone to speak with a counselor at the student career center and she was very helpful. She helped me figure out what I like and expended my options for the future. After a couple of sessions, I felt a lot more relieved.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: This only being my first year here at Creighton, I've only experienced living in the freshman dorms. But to my luck, I lived in the oldest and smallest dorm building, Gallagher Hall. Theres only one kitchen in the entire building to share. Although this was the smallest rooms on the entire campus, there were a few perks living here. It was very convenient to majority of the freshman classes. Also, theres lighting provided while other freshman dorms require students to bring their own lamps. This fall I will be living on campus in the sophomore dorm that will be much bigger with two bedrooms, a living room, and a bathroom with a shower.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our university offers a few different sororities and fraternities but it's the same as other Greek life at other campuses. Our Greek life is different like for example there's no houses allowed on campus. I would say our Greek-life is much more toned down.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: First of all, Creighton doesn't have a football team, so if that's a factor into a college for a student, this wouldn't fit them. But Creighton does have many other very great sports teams. Our men's soccer team was number one in the mid-west which is very impressive. I've gone to many of these games while they were in season and it was always very fun for my friends and I. Lucky for students, these games, as well as all sports games, are free. There's also many different intramural sports teams and club teams. Although I've never played on the club teams, I've heard its quite competitive. However, I have played in the intramural soccer women's league which was very fun and a nice stress reliever once a week.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This was my first year of college and it was full of new experiences and surprises. I wasn't sure what to expect being this was my first time at any college in general. I feel like the transition was very difficult going to a college in Nebraska coming from Hawaii. Creighton offers a lot of different majors but I think us students need more help figuring out our future. Because Creighton is a Jesuit university, there's a lot more core requirements that other schools don't have as a requirement. This can sometimes be more frustrating and difficult because it can prevent you from starting your courses that are specific to your major. But overall, there are some highlights of this year. For example, there's some great people and friends I've made that really helped me get through this year.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is nothing like the movies. Yes, there are parties and fun, but everyone is friends and everyone gets along.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I attend school at University of Nebraska in Lincoln, and we are home to some of the most well known sports teams in college. Our football and volleyball teams being the biggest. Husker football is well known throughout the country, and this school year our volleyball team became national champions. My school is not only about athletics, keep in mind I am not a student athlete. My school feels like one big family, athlete or not.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I transferred halfway through my freshman year in college. This semester at my new school has been amazing compared to my first semester. It was the best choice I have made for myself.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We are in the middle of Omaha. Since we are in a city, it can be sketchy and dangerous. However, we have public safety who we can call at any moment if we do not feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved all of my classes and for the most part my teachers care about their students and want them to be successful. Students do need to put in the time to create relationships with professors, but it is worth the effort. The class size is great, usually only about 25-30 students in a given class, with the exception of lectures.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Many students are currently searching for internships or research opportunities and are finding them. We have a strong alumni group that helps our students with networking. The career center is a great facility to use for planning your future.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As with any dorm situation, they are small and not the best quality. But, they are livable for a year or 2. The best options for freshman living I think is Kiewit because it is where the majority of freshman live, which allows for more of a community feel. The dorms are all close to classes so it is convenient. However, the housing is way too expensive.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think Greek Life is a great way to get to meet people who are similar to yourself. It also builds community on campus through philanthropy and service events. The Greek life here is not as much of a party scene as it might be at a state school because we do not have Greek houses, which I like. People who are in Greek life do not look down upon those who are not involved.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Creighton is a D1 school, so sports are a big part of our school. The games are always highly attended and people enjoy going to them. Sporting events are a good place to experience the school's community. The athletic facilities for the sports teams are better than those offered for normal students. Athletes are given more privilege in choosing housing and courses, which bothers many students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In the beginning of the year, I was so busy with adjusting to the college environment that I didn't get involved on campus. Academics are very important to me and I spent most of my time studying and wasn't very social. I got very homesick and when I would go home for breaks I was never ready to come back at the end of them. I had met great people, but my school didn't seem like home and wasn't what I wanted my college experience to be like. I chose to go to college 5 hours away from home so I could get away, but I realized that 5 hours was too far. I have decided to transfer schools because of distance and the greater opportunity the new school offers for my career path.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. Public Safety is always working and available for students in need of help.

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.
