One of the “Best Colleges of 2015”
Princeton Review again listed Creighton University as one of the nation’s top 379 colleges and universities in its 2015 edition of the annual college guide.
Creighton University students say they are very pleased with their choice to attend a great Jesuit university that is focused on academics and creating well-rounded students, according to The PrincetonReview’s 2015 “Best 379 Colleges” book.
Creighton is one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. As one student said, “At Creighton students come first, and it is as simple as that!”
The Best Master’s University
Creighton University is ranked #1 in the Best Master’s Universities category in the 2014 Washington Monthly College Rankings.
Washington Monthly’s college rankings measure institutions based on three criteria: civic engagement, research and social mobility. Washington Monthly gives high marks to institutions that contribute to society, enroll low-income students, help them graduate and are affordable to attend.
Three Creighton students were selected as 2014 Goldwater Scholars in recognition of their academic achievements in the natural sciences. The awards place Creighton in an elite group of 25 private institutions across the country that in the past five years have produced seven or more Goldwater Scholars. Plus, Creighton is the No. 1 producer among Catholic universities during the same time period.
A College of Distinction
High school guidance counselors are some of our biggest fans. Many recommend us for our student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. That support—and other research—earned us a dedicated profile on Colleges of Distinction.
President’s Award for Community Service
Creighton University was named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the sixth year in 2013. This is the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, student-service learning and civic engagement, as well as meaningful community outcomes.
Named Fair Trade University
We’re proud to be the first Jesuit university to achieve Fair Trade status as part of Fair Trade Colleges & Universities, a national initiative to recognize institutions’ efforts to support fair trade through five criteria.
