About me: My friends usually call me “Oli,” or “Ollie” in English.  I love music and I play the guitar. I like photography and technology stuff as well! When I’m free, you can probably find me at a coffee shop or just hanging out with friends.

Favorite activities on campus: There is something about Creighton that I like to highlight: there is always some free event going on, from concerts to magic shows, or free massages and therapy dogs! Also, every sporting events hosted by Creighton is open for students. Our soccer, basketball and volleyball (personal favorites) teams are great. I am usually keeping track of what is going on and try to attend as many events as I can.

Interesting facts about Creighton/Omaha: One thing I love about Omaha is that, as they say, everything is less than 20 minutes away. Creighton’s campus is located in a convenient area, a few minutes away from the Old Market, where they have a lot a local businesses, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. Also, something I love here is that I have seen the best sunsets ever. And lastly, the Henry Doorly Zoo is just amazing.

What I have to say about Creighton: Creighton is such a great place. As an international student, I love how I have felt so welcomed here; I haven’t even felt homesick at all. The community is great, and it is hard to have a walk without seeing someone I know.
