* There are three Spanish sections within this time frame. Students only attend one hour and 15 minute long section (as determined by their Spanish level).

The time periods are suggested and could be altered.

  • Students may use daytime hours to take required classes, study, and do service work
  • Daytime hours will also enable visiting Creighton professors to prepare for class, to explore the area, and possibly to do their own service hours or research.
  • If students are not taking an elective class in the evening, they may use this time to study or work on projects and other courses.
  • The last day of each 3-week session may be assessment day (test or project or other assessment measure).
