I was an athlete, a neuroscience major researching the long-term effects of vaping and a healthcare worker. And I could do it all because I’m a Bluejay. At Creighton you can try everything, and you can do anything.
Neuroscience, College of Arts and Sciences
Creighton provided me with outstanding opportunities. I love that I was able to be involved in a little bit of everything and prepare myself for the future without feeling overloaded.
When I came to Creighton, I knew I’d be on the rowing team and that I wanted to pursue research. That was my home base. Eventually I found myself working in a hospital as a medical scribe for the emergency room, that inspired me to pursue a masters in medical anatomy. While at Creighton, I got involved in studying e-cigarettes, the long-term effects of vaping and how it affects overall changes in the lungs.
I like this research project because it’s relevant and understandable. You can talk to anyone about it, and they know exactly what you’re talking about. It’s also new. We can study almost any aspect of e-cigarettes and find new information. In our research, we pushed boundaries to see what we could find.
That’s the thing about Creighton. There aren’t many places where you can do so many things and get valuable experience out of all of them.
I wouldn’t trade my experience at Creighton for the world. It’s made me who I am today.
Students aren’t just doing one thing; they have so many different opportunities. I loved being able to build lasting and meaningful connections with people from all walks of life.
