What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
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.
Christie from HI
creighton is easily the best college in the area, and has a great reputation, especially in the midwest. it has awesome medical and science programs. everyone i know who has gone there has come away from it pleased with their investments, whether that be time, money, effort, or all of three.
