About Creighton University
Located in Omaha, Nebraska, Creighton University is the top rated private university in the Midwest. With 6,800 students, Creighton is small enough to ensure the formation of each student is a priority, and large enough to sustain nine thriving schools and colleges.
Currently, Creighton is in a period of vast expansion with projects such as the Mike and Josie Harper Center for Student Life and Learning, an innovative facility that combines the divisions of Academic Affairs and Student Services. The Ryan Athletics Center/ D.J. Sokol Arena is currently under construction to focus on women’s athletics. Creighton also recently renovated and remodeled the heart of its campus, St. John’s Church. While St. John’s received a facelift, it also remained true to its 121-year-old tradition. Creighton is constructing and remodeling these buildings as a renewed commitment to the holistic education of its students: mind, body, and spirit.
A hallmark of Creighton’s dedication to the student experience is the relationship between the administrator and the student leader. “It isn’t every university where a student can call and within the week be able to meet with a university vice president,” touts an Arts & Sciences ’07 graduate. This accessibility does not stop with Creighton’s vice presidents. Creighton is blessed with a university president that is supportive of student initiatives and open to student comments.
Creighton’s commitment to its Jesuit mission and Catholic values is readily apparent in the Omaha community, as one can observe Creighton students serving the homeless at the Siena/Francis House, tutoring children at Jesuit Middle School, and teaching English to Omaha’s large Sudanese population. These values take root, as Creighton’s alumni continue this dedication to their communities throughout the world.
Once an individual joins the Creighton community, they will never cease to be a part of the Creighton family. A part of Creighton will always be with them, pushing them to seek Magis.
