Why do you think Creighton is special? The community feel at Creighton is unlike any other. From the moment you step on this campus, you are a part of a family that is full of students, staff, and faculty who want to see you grow and succeed not only academically, but personally, as well.
Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? If you are able to, visit campus in person! This is going to give you the best idea of what it really looks like to be a Bluejay!
What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? What is there not to like?! Omaha provides a plethora of opportunities while not being overwhelming. The people here have stereotypical midwestern hospitality which makes it a very welcoming place. My favorite spots are North Downtown (NoDo), Little Bohemia, and the newly renovated Gene Leahy Mall and Heartland of America Riverfront Park.
