Why do you think Creighton is special? Creighton provides such a strong sense of community – you really will have an entire school cheering you on and helping you succeed
Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? You are a very special and unique individual – find not only the qualities within you that inspire that, but also the school! There are experiences, school involvement, and passions that make you stand out, share those with us! We love to hear your personality come through in your application and essay. In addition, find a college that supports those characteristics about yourself. I encourage you to not only look at the schools that most students in your class are going to, but also the ones no one has gone to or heard of. You can truly find a school that supports all the qualities and interests you have!
What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? I love the beauty and diversity of Omaha’s Old Market. It is a place where you can shop for antiques and books, experience art galleries and live music, and eat or get coffee in cute little places. My favorites are the lavender vanilla latte at The Table Coffee Co., made from scratch ice cream at Ted and Wally’s, and walking through the exhibits at the Durham Museum.
