Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? Try not to stress, but enjoy this ride! It’s an exciting time in your life! When looking at colleges and universities, try to pay attention to how you feel. How you feel while walking on campus and interacting with the students, how you feel hearing about the activities and programs, how you feel when you’re in the car driving home after your visit. Can you see yourself going to school here? Your gut can tell you a lot and we want you to find the best fit for YOU! We hope it’s Creighton!

What do you think about Omaha? What are your favorite secret spots? I’ve lived all over the world and Omaha is always home to me!  It’s inviting, friendly, and laid back, but still has the buzz and fun of a big city. I love to eat and try new restaurants and Omaha is FULL of great little hole-in-the-wall places. Ask us for a list of our favorite restaurants and try one for yourself!
