What does Omaha have to offer students?

Omaha has lots of entertainment options, including The Slowdown and Film Streams, an independent rock club and independent movie theater just blocks away. Plus, CenturyLink Center Omaha (home of the Jays!) is also a stop on international music tours. There are plenty of trails in and around Omaha for hiking, biking or just a nice stroll along the riverfront. The downtown area (a short walk from Creighton's campus) has a wide range of entertainment options, ranging from excellent restaurants to coffee houses and shopping to a great local music scene.
