Honors Scholars Community

 What is the Honors Scholars Community?

The Honors Scholars Community is a collaborative new initiative presented by Academic Affairs and the Department of Residence Life.  This special community is designed to fully welcome new Honors program freshmen to Creighton University.  The goals of the Honors program include fostering a community "committed to the ongoing education of students and faculty members as fellow seekers for truth."  In addition to taking courses together, students will also live in community while participating in numerous monthly events as a group. 

Who lives in the Honors Scholars Community?

All freshman honors students are required to live on the Honors Scholars Community.
