What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love being a Bluejay at Creighton University. The school has an atmosphere of service and intellection. The people are truly what makes all the difference. Creighton students are generally very kind, open, and willing to talk to anyone. Further, there is a lot of diversity on campus. There are students from across the US and across the world that all find their place within Creighton. The campus is easily accessible, has very nice facilities and buildings, and everything is very well-maintained. The professors truly care about each individual student and will challenge them to go above and beyond. Professors push critical thinking and intellectual discussions in an artful way that helps students grow and develop new opinions and ideas they may not have come into the university with. Academics are rigorous, but not in a busy-work way. Every assignment and conversation is intentional with room for meaningful discussion and ideas. People fall in love with Creighton, people grow at Creighton, and people find their passion at Creighton. I'm blessed to have been brought to this phenomenal institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Creighton University is the embodiment of community. There is almost no bounds to what another person on campus may do for you if you asked. The professors are always available and almost always the kindest you will ever meet. The administration says they care who their students become rather than how much they make or how famous they become, which seems to me like an attitude that breeds more success than by those who care what their students are upon graduation or their dollar amount.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I liked Creighton University. I was not too big that you would never see the same person twice, but it was big enough to where you could meet people on the time. I liked that they were not just catholic in name, but the catholic values were instilled but not forced on students. The food was okay. The food at Billy Blues, Mcgloin, and Davis were really good, but the food at Brandeis and Skutt Student Center were okay but not the best. I liked that the class sizes were not too big, the largest class I had was about 200 students and that was the intro the biology class. This was good because I got a chance to get to know my professors and get letters of recommendations when I needed to. The soccer games were fun, because our team was good and the players were good looking and really nice. The basketball team then was not as good as they were now, but the games were still fun. Overall, it's a great school. I graduated 7 years and I am still friends with the people that I met there. I only downside is that it is not very diverse. About 90% of students are Caucasian, about 7% are Asians, then about 3% where African Americans. There were many classes in which I was the only African American female in the class. It was fine, I never encountered overt racism, but it was uncomfortable at times. Other than that, I had a great experience at Creighton University. Go Bluejays!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What a wonderful school, I am so glad I decided to attend. The freshman dorms are not the cream of the crop but the sophomore dorms are so hang in there! You are required to live on campus sophomore year but you will definitely enjoy it. All of the professors I've had so far are BEYOND intelligent. Involvement on campus is amazing, there's something for everybody. I would recommend this for anyone, not just the typical pre-med student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Look. Creighton has everything that’s important to a student’s future. Great academics, okay teachers (although some are HIGHLY questionable), and fair financial aid. I am not blind to or ungrateful for these things. However, everything that makes a college campus “inviting” or “attractive” in nonexistent. The food is the WORST part about this school. It’s awful. It has improved but still lacks variety and the same food is often served for two meals or even two days in a row. The only reason people come here is to look good for graduate school. In fact, it’s a running joke amongst many students to converse about why anyone would choose to go through the hell called Creighton. Most classes (at least in the college of science) are pretty difficult to pass for an average student and require a lot of time and effort. Many freshman don’t realize this and end up failing classes and giving up on their dreams. So many biology majors end up switching to business simply because it’s easier. Creighton can call that underachieving if they want... but I call it dream-killing. Just a money-hungry, almost-prestigious but just as pompous school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited Creighton University when I got called in for an interview for their Pharmacy School. I absolutely loved it! Everyone was super friendly and encouraging. The school itself is huge but there were people all around welling to help you get to where you needed to be. There program, at least for Pharmacy, is amazing. They truly did a good job in structuring their distance education program for the PharmD program. Overall, Creighton is amazing and I am very excited to start there this coming fall God welling!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school. The campus is beautiful and everyone at Creighton is amazing. This place is home to me. The class sizes are small, unless it is gen. bio., but that is because the school attracts a lot of bio majors. At Creighton, you feel like all of your professors care about you and want to make sure you have the ability to succeed in your goals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Creighton University is a community/ family oriented school that cares for each of their students. I never feel like a small fish in a big pond and I have felt at home from the moment I stepped onto campus. I am a pre-med student and can say from my experience that Creighton's courses are challenging and rigorous, preparing me well for the MCAT and for Medical school. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed my time at Creighton. It was rigorous and I learned a lot. They really worked to support us the entire time we were in school and then after school as well. It became a community away from home and I met wonderful people from all over the United States since it's a private university. There were many great opportunities for learning in Creighton. I also had the chance to study abroad and my psychology classes were small. My professors in the department of Psychology were really great and had some really cool research going on. The path for pre-med was very rigorous and well thought out. They have a good path if you want to go into medicine or other health professions. My pre-med classes were anywhere from 30 students to 120 students. My psychology and core classes were about 20-30 students each semester. For having fun, there were many people who had a ton of fun but I was pre-health and didn't have the studying background of some of the other students who had always gone to private schools. I didn't drink much because I felt like I always needed to be studying but others definitely were able to go out and have fun more often. I joined a sorority and I really appreciated that they didn't have sorority houses. That way we could still be close but it gave us time to have other friends and do other things with our free time. I was also able to join a fair amount of other activities like a volunteer fraternity, and some other volunteer opportunities through places around school. The dorms and meal plans were ok. The food has probably changed since I was in school, but before it was always buffet and there were many sections. The dorm rooms were a little old but that is where I met a lot of the friends I had throughout university. I highly recommend living in the dorm. Some of my best memories were there. I was in Gallagher and then Swanson which were both really social. Gallagher was like a family away from home and the best one in my opinion but I'm biased. Once you get to know people, there are apartments on campus for the last two years or many people would go in together and live in a house. That was a good experience as well. It felt a little less safe as it was the old part of town but I never had any problems. If you choose, you could always live a little further west and still have a pretty short commute. One thing that recently reminded me of how much I enjoyed my time at Creighton, was my interaction with the Career Center. I have been applying to graduate school and they were really helpful with my personal statement and the process even though I've been graduated for a long time. I talked with two different councilors who helped me through multiple edits on my personal statement and resume. My friend went to a big state university and they weren't as helpful for her. I think that is one of the many nice things about going to a smaller private Catholic university, they have the resources to see you through to employment or graduate school.
