The professors here are great! They are always available to help students with homework, papers, or any of the material. They really encourage you to go to their office and speak about past exams or current material. They really make time through e-mail as well throughout the weekend. They really care! There are also multiple resources here to help you with academics such as, tutoring, group work, supplemental instruction, etc.
Review Creighton University
I'll admit, Creighton is generous in giving scholarships/financial aid. I'm vegan & requested to not be on a meal plan due to poor variety on campus. They denied my multiple requests. This was insanely frustrating. Like any other school, rape is just as a problem on this campus as any other campus regardless of it being private or not. Also, this school claims to follow jesuit values, yet, the school hides rape cases so it can artificially keep their rape/crime stats low. Attached is an article written by a Creighton student who was raped. In the article, she discusses the type of treatment she received from the school when she reported... https://lifewithcassie1.wordpress.com/2017/01/26/i-am-a-lover-but-im-also-a-fighter/
At first I hated Creighton. To me, it was a place in the middle of a corn field where my parents attended college. It took me three visits to realize this is where I belonged. I love how Creighton is a 'direct entry' nursing school, and how the professors are still working nurses today. I am involved in Greek life on campus and I love how Creighton's Greek Life is more centered around service and community projects. It is different than the state schools and I really enjoy it. Creighton does a great job at Greek Unity. At some state schools, sororities are rivals and some girls wont talk to you if you are in a different sorority. Not at Creighton, I have friends in every sorority and not once have a felt 'hated' by another sorority. The entire atmosphere of Creighton is what drew me in the most. The campus is not too big and all the classes are close together. I love being able to walk down campus and say Hi to just about everyone. It took a while for me to fall in love with Creighton, but I am so happy that my parents made me come on so many visits!
