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.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There're small classes, both lecture and discussion based. There are a variety of courses offered.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center can be very helpful. Most students go on to graduate or medical schools.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm rooms are small and sharing a community bathroom and shower is not ideal. The social atmosphere on each floor differs. Freshmen doors are very convent in proximity to classes. The housing process is a hassle and many students do not receive their first choice. There are limited housing options as well

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is great for the social aspect, but it also known for its opportunities to volunteer and give back to the community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Creighton does not have a football team, but the soccer and basketball teams are a big part of student life. Games are very popular to attend and there is a lot of school spirit at athletic events. The athletic facilities for athletes are outstanding, but could use more room and equipment for average students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Jesuit values are very important at Creighton University. I am involved in club and intramural sports, which has made a positive impact on my college experience. Greek life is a good mix of social and opportunities to volunteer and give back to the community. It is unique in its outstanding reputation for the arts and sciences.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am in graduate school so all classes I take are required.

Overall Experience: We have clinical advisers that help us set up all of our internships.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Omaha is downtown so crime is a little higher here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Creighton's Jesuit values make this college so unique, and I am so glad that I have had to opportunity to be educated here.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Creighton seems to have a large fan support. I think mostly from alumni.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When there is a campus crime we do get informed about it which is important. Public safety is always around so that is a plus. I feel safe because the campus is small and when you walk with someone else you never feel a threat.

Overall Experience: The courses offered are okay. I wish they had a little better variety of classes. I would like to have the option to take more classes online. This would have made my schedule a little easier. The professors are nice and friendly and are eager to help you when you need it.

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.
