Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? College is a great time to step outside your comfort zone and try something new.  Don’t be afraid to look at colleges a little further from home or in a part of the country you didn’t necessarily see yourself living in.  You can always return home after you graduate, but you’ll never again be able to experience something new with so much support than you will in college.

What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? Omaha in general is my favorite secret spot!  I’ve never spent time in a place that is a big city yet small town all at once, but that is Omaha.  Between the Fortune 500 companies based here and all the concerts, plays, and musicals that make stops here, our students are able to easily access all the educational, professional, and social options you want to have in college.  You should for sure get ice cream at Ted and Wally’s or Coneflower while you are in town though!

Why do I think Creighton is special?  The Creighton Community is really something special!  From the way our faculty and staff look out for our students whether it be a research program they should get involved in or a new internship they’d be a great match for, we keep Creighton students front of mind.  And our students embrace being Men and Women for and with others as Jesuit Education asks us to by using their skills and talents to make an impact in the world around us.
