Creighton is a comfortable urban college with a strong reputation for producing high academic achievers. I love the campus, it's small city setting in Omaha, NE, the mild change of seasons, and the regional attraction of students like me. In addition to a stellar academic record, Creighton has plenty of extracurricular activities to make college life fun. There are intramural sports, Greek life, division one basketball and a warm, friendly atmosphere that makes me feel comfortable.

I mean it's a private and Jesuit school, so it's high school all over again, except with a lot of Caucasian people and a lot of that preppy vibe on campus (More than 75% of the kids here are super preppy). If you're studying any type of natural science (biology, chemistry, physics) or math or are premed, good luck getting above a 3.3 or 3.4. The reason I say that is because it's not that the pre med classes are hard; it's that you have to take mandatory classes from this thing called the "Magis Core". Please bear with me for a minute: since Creighton is a Jesuit Catholic school, each student has to be "well rounded" and therefore has to take a lot of classes in addition to the major, that have nothing to do with the major. For freshman year, the magic core classes are: 1. Theology, 2. History, 3. Communication 101 (tedious), 4. Intro Philosophy, 5. English composition, 6. Math. And these are just your classes in first year NOT INCLUDING YOUR CLASSES FOR YOUR MAJOR. This is one of the reasons why many people here drop pre med. In your sophomore year, your magic core classes are: 1. Biblical Tradition (Advanced theology), 2. Global perspectives in history (Advanced history), 3. Ethics (extremely hard at creighton), 4. World literature, 5. Foreign Language, 6. Art (I'm not kidding), 7. Understanding Social Science, 8. Understanding natural science. If you're a pre med student or science student, you're good to go on #8. The social sciences part (#7) can be done by taking psych. or anthro. So if you're majoring in business, you have to take all these classes separately. I am not kidding about this stuff; you can search it on google. For junior year, the magic core classes are: 1. Intersections, 2. ultimate questions, 3. Doing natural science, 4. Doing social science. Lastly, if you're not a super social person, this school is not that great for you. I'm sorry but I'm being honest. There's A LOT of drinking and over 60% of kids are fraternities at Creighton.

Creighton university has been very good to me, when I wasn't sure how to finish paying for school the counselors sat down with me and helped me figure it out , when I was failing the professors helped me understand the work better. I can truly say that this has been a great experience.
