What excited you most about choosing Creighton as your university?

I chose Creighton University because of the family-like atmosphere. I am from a small town in Colorado and wanted that hometown feel for a university.

What opportunities have made your Creighton experience unique and valuable?

My Creighton experience has been valuable because of all the great service opportunities students are given. All of the service that I have participated with on Creighton’s campus and internationally has left a lasting impression. As I leave Creighton to pursue my residency in orthopedic surgery, I will continue my passion for service for and with others in my every day life.

What do you think sets Creighton apart from other Universities?

Creighton is a great university because of it’s students. Creighton attracts students who want to be a part of a family working together for the betterment of the community through service and education.

From your experience, what do you feel are Creighton’s strengths in preparing students for their future?

Creighton allows students to blossom in a family friendly environment while providing the structure and education to make it happen. Creighton has the core curriculum and values that make it possible for every student to succeed.
