Why do you think Creighton is special? Creighton is special because it gives its students many opportunities to be successful. Creighton has allowed me to be interested in many different fields, and has provided me with the opportunities to gain experience in those fields. The Creighton community is a special community that is welcome to any person, belief, or thought. It is a very inclusive place to be.
Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? I would say to choose your school based on your future career goals. Apply to schools that give you the best opportunity to succeed in not only your major, but all of your passions in life. For myself and many others, Creighton was that place where I had the best opportunity to succeed in everything that I did.
What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? What kept me coming back to Omaha was the people. The people are almost always caring for you as an individual whether it would be the random person you run into at a local store, or whether it would be the professor that you will be learning from, they are always welcoming and hospitable to everyone. My favorite spots for food in Omaha would be: #1 Tasty Pastry (Pizza on Leavenworth), #2 Dinkers Burgers (American on South 29th Street), #3 Mo Fish (Sea Food, Council Bluffs, Iowa). These places are little hole in the wall places that are a must-have in Omaha. I really enjoy walking the Pedestrian Bridge and I enjoy the various events and free concerts in Midtown Crossing.
