Fun fact about yourself: Wherever I travel, I always try to find local authors to read either before, after, or during my trip. I find it’s one of the best ways to learn about another place. 

Why do you think Creighton is special? Creighton is special because it equips students with the tools to be men and women for others in a variety of practical and necessary applications for life, and have fun along the way! 

Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? Be yourself. Tell us who you are as a person, and allow the college application process guide you in your desires and hopes. Visit if you can, and if it feels right, chances are it’s the right place for you to spend the next four years. 

What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots?  Omaha has some amazing restaurants and parks to try. I enjoy taking my dog for walks in a different park each weekend, and trying new restaurants with my friends. Some of my favorite spots include La Buvette for French bistro vibes, Lyles Pizzeria for my pizza fix,  and Lola’s Café for a wholesome lunch.
