What excited you most about choosing Creighton?
First and foremost, that it is Jesuit. Creighton’s heritage as a Jesuit university is what made me excited because I absolutely love how the Jesuits approach higher education.
What opportunities have made your Creighton experience unique and valuable?
Being in the Cortina Community and involved with the Creighton Center for Service and Justice have helped me find my passion for social justice and advocacy work in the Jesuit tradition. Being in the social justice and service programs here on campus has made my experience very valuable and I am so excited for the future!
