    so far i'm very happy with my choice of creighton. five classmates from my high school also chose creighton, so there was not a total stranger feeling in my first weeks on campus. i had my second guesses late in the summer after high school graduation, but after i arrived and moved into the dorm, i was very happy. i know the cost of cu is on the higher end, but i feel the class sizes are reasonable to allow plenty of instructor interaction. i've always had professors that are easy to get in touch with and meet should i have questions.
