Why do you think Creighton is special? Creighton is deeply rooted in its Jesuit values and traditions. Such values call for students to think critically, to be women and men for and with others, and to always strive for excellence. Ultimately, Creighton students graduate with a lifelong empowerment to be the best versions of themselves and to be of greater service to others.
Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? Avoid applying to a school based solely on arbitrary rankings; instead ask yourself if the school is the right fit for you. After all, your education is what you make of it.
What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? The future definitely lies in Omaha. Omaha is much more metropolitan than a lot of people imagine it to be. Opportunities are aplenty; it is a great place for college students and fresh graduates to develop their career. The many ethnic restaurants in the city also reflect the diversity and vibrancy of the Omaha community. Among my favorite eateries in the greater Omaha area are El Dorado (Mexican), Pitch Pizzeria (Coal-fire pizza), Amsterdam Falafel and Kabob (Middle Eastern), and New Gold Mountain (Chinese).
