What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Creighton has been nothing short of amazing. Everyone on campus is extremely friendly. All of my professors make time for one on one meetings and are very caring.
Karissa from Springfield, NE
creighton university is the right size, big enough, but not too big, and located in an urban setting. the university is well run by jesuits, with a pleasant and open atmosphere. academics are rigorous, extra curricular and student life are plentiful.
parker from plymouth, mn
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 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.
Garrett from Colorado Springs, CO
Creighton is a first rate university. The campus is very nice and accessible. The faculty and staff are all friendly and helpful.
Jeff from Papillion, NE
Creighton is not like any other college. All us students are a diverse group of individuals, coming from a wide variety of backgrounds. We are accepting of anyone and everyone, and we will change the world.
Jonathon from Omaha, NE
An experience of a lifetime. Top-notch school with outstanding professors. Opportunities for everybody.
