Creighton University Reviews
I just completed my freshman year at Creighton University, and I can’t wait to go back. I’m a nursing student, so my classes are tough; however, the professors are willing to help you if you make an effort to go and see them. There are many clubs and activities on campus to suit every interest. Some of the clubs I’m involved in include Nursing Leadership Scholars, intramural volleyball, CUSNA, and National Society of Collegiate Scholars. The dorms on campus are average; I lived in Swanson Hall my freshman year. Swanson is the only suite style freshman dorm with a private bathroom. Kiewit, Gallagher, and Deglman all have community bathrooms. Truthfully, the food at Creighton is not the best. I have some dietary issues, so I have a really hard time eating in the dining halls. Therefore, I made many trips to the grocery store throughout my freshman year. Most stores and restaurants are not a walkable distance from campus, so I highly recommend bringing a car with you!
Creighton offers a variety of research opportunities for undergraduates that you don’t necessarily have access to everywhere. The student body at Creighton is one that feels like a group of leaders, since so many students are involved in extracurricular activities and organizations, and hold leadership positions in those organizations. You are able to get lots of face time with professors and they almost always know you by name since the classes are small. The Jesuit values are at the center of life at Creighton, which trains students to confront injustice and search for opportunities to stand with those on the receiving end of that injustice.
As a recent grad I cannot recommend Creighton enough to someone. Whether it was in the classroom, extracurricular activities, or socializing with friends, I grew as a person each and every day. I was treated to an amazing staff of professors, many coming from unique and diverse backgrounds, and all with my academic and professional growth as their chief priority. I also was lucky to meet some of the greatest people in the world, people I am lucky to call lifelong friends. In my four years at Creighton, I failed to meet someone I didn't enjoy being around. The university attracts students with strong values and I was able to see and realize this for the four years I was there. Additionally, there is a sense of culture and pride in the university that is prevalent not just through campus but through the city of Omaha as a whole. It is an amazing community to be apart of and I truly envy anyone who is just beginning their journey with the university. Roll Jays!
