Why do you think Creighton is special? Creighton’s strong sense of community is truly unmatched. The Ignatian values are interwoven into all that we do. Students are pushed to learn both inside and outside of the classroom, growing as an individual for and with others.
Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? Trust yourself—there is no perfect way to make your college decision. If you are the type of person that relies on your gut, great! If you are someone that takes an analytical approach, great! Enjoy this exciting time as you choose where you will continue to grow.
What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? Omaha is truly the land of opportunities! It is the perfect size in that you have all the benefits of a big city—athletics, concerts, great food—without any of the drawbacks. A few of my favorite spots for incredible eats are Salween for Thai, Block 16 for burgers, and Pitch for pizza!
