What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Creighton is by far the best fit for me and any other prospective students looking for a high quality education respected by many. The small class size enables students to get to know their professors and have that personal relationship with them. The amount of respect communities, in Nebraska and across the nation, give to Creighton students is outstanding because they know that only the motivated optimistic students of America go to Creighton University.

Medium sized community that feels like a small, close knit community. Really follows the core Jesuit values (i.e. working for and with others). A place where not only are academics encouraged, but participation in extracurriculars as well.
