Student Demographics

A diverse student body, learning from one another.

Creighton embraces and thrives on diversity — not only demographic diversity, but also intellectual and experiential diversity. Our students come from all walks of life, bringing with them fresh, stimulating ideas and horizon-expanding stories.

As much as you’ll learn from your professors here, you’ll learn just as much from the classmates you collaborate with and the friends you make.
