What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Go visit the campus. Apply early. Participate in one of the programs for applicants.
Joel from Fort Collins, CO
Become who you are faster. My service to others has been the most enriching experience of my personal growth outside the classroom. I think the most instrumental action in this process was applying what I learned in the classroom and bringing it to the Center for Service and Justice Office. I am a Justice and Society major and have considered my vocation to be working for Justice and Peace in whatever way I can be most effective. I believe the Center for Service and Justice could bring their mission to a larger audience by encouraging other students to transcend their current selves and become active in social justice issues.

I suggest taking as many college courses in high school that you can! Most high schools will pay for that which will take a great burden off of you and your parent's wallets! Also, DO YOUR HOMEWORK! You will be amazed how much easier a class becomes and how much more you understand the material when you simply do the homework! Also, if you are stuck on a problem or you don't understand a lesson go in and talk with the professor. That is what they are there for, and most are more than willing to take the time it takes for you to be able to understand the material. They want to see you succeed.
Sally from Newton, IA
I would definitely recommend coming here! There are many opportunities on and off campus.
Karissa from Springfield, NE
math and science should be your strong suits, although a rounded high school experience would be best. the school is strong on liberal arts. don't wait too long to find your major, spend some time with counselors if you have not made a choice by mid-freshman year.
parker from plymouth, mn
Have an idea of what you would like to study at Creighton and see how large the department is here. Creighton, in my opinion is a perfect fit for students wishing to continue their education at a professional school, due to the fact that Creighton has so many professional schools (Pharmacy, Medical, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Dental, Law). Creighton tends to give a large percentage of their accepted students a scholarship, varying in monetary amounts of course, so that should also be a factor in your decision.
Christie from HI
Prospective students need to know that Creighton holds a high standard to all of their students. If you want to have a high quality education where students strive to get involved, be the best, show school spirit at Basketball and Soccer games, and study hard then Creighton is the school for you. Come take a visit because even though Creighton looks great in stats and on paper, it looks even better walking down the main street watching the leaves turn colors in the Autumn sun, seeing all the lights lit up around Christmas time, or that first snowfall where it looks like a Winter Wonderland.
Garrett from Colorado Springs, CO
Be prepared to work hard. It is important to get into a routine and spend a little time working on each task daily. It can get really stressful putting things off to the last minute and often the quality of work suffers as well. The faculty is there to help you in every way they can so take advantage of their willingness to be available.
Jeff from Papillion, NE
You will really find out who you are by attending Creighton. Yes we are in Nebraska, but it is nothing like you may think it is. I'm from out of state, and I love it here.
Jonathon from Omaha, NE
