Why do you think Creighton is special? Creighton is a place where you can be yourself. You are challenged to be the best person that you can possibly be. It’s not often that you find an environment that is so active, yet so welcoming at the same time.

Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? My advice is to proofread everything that is sent into Creighton. I would also recommend having fun with your personal statement so that we can get to know you better as a person.

What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? I like that Omaha always has something to do. It is a small city with the big city atmosphere. One of my favorite spots is Elmwood Park because you are footsteps away from food in Dundee, a golf course, and a movie theater.
