The CSS Experience

"[This] department shaped me into the student I am today. I would not be as successful without the support and help from the professors in the deaprtment." ~ Nora Frigo, Medical Anthropology major (2015), attending Creighton's School for Occupational Therapy in the fall.

"I was a Medical Anthropology major and Biology minor. I will be doing an internship with Greek InterVarsity, a college student ministry, at Creighton for 2 years, as well as medical scribing at Think Whole Person Healthcare. I'm planning to attend school to be a Physician's Assistant at the end of my two year commitment." ~ Melanie Kim, Class of 2015
