Beauty and the Holy See

Creighton’s green efforts are garnering attention. The University was named to Travel and Leisure’s “most beautiful” colleges list, and its sustainability initiatives were recognized by the Vatican — which invited Creighton to have a display inside its pavilion at Expo 2017 “Future Energy,” an international exposition being held this summer in Astana, Kazakhstan.

The campus’ green thumbprint can be seen in academic, facility and landscaping programs and projects. As part of those efforts, Creighton energy technology students assembled the sprouting EnergiPlant — an eye-catching alternative energy structure that looks like a giant flower and incorporates solar and wind technology. A bench at the base includes outlets for students to power their electronic devices.
