Why do you think Creighton is special? As a recent graduate of Creighton University, I am aware of the special community Creighton offers its students. Creighton not only helps you realize your academic potential, but it provides you with endless opportunities in order to succeed and become the best person you can be for the world. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you have or just to say hello!

Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? While choosing where to spend your next four years can be stressful, it can also be an extremely exciting and rewarding time in your life. Try not to focus on the little things and work on finding a place where you feel at home.

What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? I love how friendly everyone is. No matter where you go there is always a smiling face or a helping hand. Although this isn’t necessarily a secret spot, I love attending the numerous farmer’s markets Omaha has to offer.
