Mark Reedy
“In many ways Creighton is the perfect size. We are large enough that we have a tremendous array of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs but small enough that everything is within a 10-minute walk. I think that facilitates unique experiences and opportunities for both students and faculty.”
— Mark Reedy, Associate Professor and Chair, Biology Department
Amelia Taule
“Every day I feel more grateful for my Jesuit education, and I try to live by the magis value every day. My professors and the Career Center were wonderful. Without them, I wouldn’t have been able to land an internship at Nike, and now I’m moving to Spain to start a master’s program in customer experience and innovation!”
— Amelia Taulé, Marketing and Management, Class of 2019 | Santiago, Dominican Republic
Brady Manker
“Creighton immediately stood out among the schools that I visited for their commitment not only to academics and research but to the pride they hold in their values. As someone who wanted to actively work in the sciences, Creighton’s abundant research resources were a clear draw.”
— Brady Manker, Neuroscience, Class of 2020 | Papillion, Nebraska
