There are a couple stereotypes of students at Creighton. The first is super crazy smart. The kids here definitely live up to this stereotype. Another one is preppy, rich kids. I would have to say that this is pretty accurate as well. Many people are Greek, and they tend to be preppy in terms of dress and accessory.
Catholic school kids/nerdy. Yes and no to both. There is a HUGE population of private school kids in general (mostly Catholic, but some other types.) Most people here are sort of nerdy, but you do have some of the Greeks that try to act otherwise.
The most common stereotype of a Creighton student is generally that we are all Pre-Med students. The stereotype is somewhat accurate, there are a TON of Pre-Health students on the campus, but they aren't all buried in a book or anything. Creighton has a bunch of majors to offer (I am actually a Computer Science and Digital Design and Development Major), and Pre-Health or not, it is a great environment and the people here are very easy to talk to and get along with. Creighton's student population is generally a very smart group of people, but there are still a bunch of opportunities to have fun, with greek life and sporting events and intermurals what not.
I think that the majority of students at Creighton are very focused students, whether they want to admit it or not. A lot of times, you will hear people say that they did not study at all for a test and then after they take it, you find out they got a 98%. I think that most students at Creighton can be classified as smart. They work hard for their grades. Students here volunteer a lot of their time, they study abroad, and they strive to get great internships. I think that all of this helps to build the type of person that they are, but also helps their resumes (which resume building is not always a bad thing...you can get some great experience out of something that you may originally just start because you wanted to put it on a Resume)
The stereotype at Creighton is that we are all a bunch of rich doctor's kids who are going to be doctors. Not so. I am on a scholarship and getting a degree in theology and education. I work hard to stay at this great school. I am NOT here because "daddy has connections."
Rich, white people. Super conservative Christians. From extremely wealthy families, and "super smart." Also, there are the huge group of random Hawaiians.
Is the stereotype accurate? I'd say that I do notice outside of the large group of students from Hawaii that yeah, Creighton seems kind of uniformed and many of the people share the same characteristics. Although I am surprised at some of the people that attend the school, not super bright, but it is what it is. Other than that, it's hard to find people who are in the middle.
