I was worried about the cost of Creighton going into my freshman year, but I can tell you the experience I've had is worth it! All of my professors knew my name and gave constant attention to our classwork, even for my large lecture classes as a nursing major. Sporting events are so much fun, and because our out-of-state population is so high, you have a great chance of meeting people from all over the world! Our dining staff is funny and sweet, and I personally love the food, though the diversity of food options isn't always there. A few of our freshman dorms are admittedly run-down, but they have just begun reconstruction on a few of them, and the upperclassmen dorms are very nice. My RA was the best; she was never condescending, and had a group chat of our floor in case we had any questions or just wanted to talk. There are so many counseling and tutoring opportunities on campus, and it's made readily available to students. If you attend CU, don't miss the fall lip sync battle!

The class sizes and quality in my experience as a psychology major was great. I loved my professors and always felt supported in my undergraduate journey. It was also much easier to get into research labs to get experience there. The dance program is also great!
My only real complaint would be that Creighton refused to divest from fossil fuels which goes against their social justice mission. Also, they really need to diversify in terms of race.
Creighton has such a friendly community & a nice campus! The classroom learning environment is very unique and has helped me to learn a lot. The teachers and faculty member are very nice and willing to help. Especially with the pandemic, the university has made the campus feel safe and clean. It is definitely a great school and a home away from home.
