Class of 2021: By the Numbers

Class of 2021: By the Numbers

With a record-setting 1,119 freshmen arriving on campus for the 2017 fall semester, Creighton eclipsed its previous high of 1,068 incoming students, set in 2015. Total enrollment for the 2017–2018 academic year reached 8,654 — also an all-time record.

Creighton continues to embrace and thrive on diversity — and not just demographically, but intellectually and experientially, as well. Students come from all walks of life, bringing with them fresh, stimulating ideas to add to the already vibrant chorus on campus.

The newest crop of freshmen comes from states across the U.S., and well beyond. While a little more than a third come from less than 200 miles away, 20 percent had a decidedly longer trip to campus — more than 1,000 miles.

Freshman Giang “Emily” Pham, pausing here for a photo with Billy Bluejay amid August freshman orientation activities, has called Vietnam home for most of her life.

Why did she #ChooseCreighton?

Quite simply, she says: “It’s kind of perfect for me.”
