"From the moment I stepped on to campus as an admitted student to the day I graduated (and beyond) I have been touched by the unique and nurturing community Creighton has to offer. The faculty and staff are passionate about your success, the student body pushes you to become the best version of yourself, and the Jesuit values guide you along the way."

What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? I love how Omaha provides the perfect meld of a big city feel with a small town charm! This means that the food options are endless (pizza, sushi, or ice cream - we’ve got you covered) but everywhere you go people still truly bleed Creighton blue! Check out a Creighton Basketball game to feel this great Creighton pride; we have about 18,000 people attend!
