Did not want to write a bad reviewBrightOther
Did not want to write a bad review about the university because I appreciate my education and am thankful for the incredible professors and opportunities that they have given me; but here I am. Everything about the friendliness, open mindedness, the ability to make friends, all of that is complete BS. If you are not in a Greek Organization you will not be listened to when it comes to administration or help with issues. If you are not constantly pretending to be happy or pretending to be important, then you will not be listened to. It does not matter how hard you work or the actual work that you do, the only thing that is rewarded at this campus is arrogance and privilege. Everything on this campus is run by cliques and the horrible administration that constantly tries to put positive spins on things that are not important. If I had the chance to do it over again I would most certainly choose a different school. Unless you like hanging out with only douchey-prep school kids. Then you will have a great time.

I remember looking at reviews for Creighton beforeQuite BrightFinance
I remember looking at reviews for Creighton before I decided to enroll and I ignored many of the negatives because the students were obviously mad and just ranted. What I didn't notice was that they were all saying THE SAME EXACT THING. The registration system is really messed up. Some midwest students come in with 40+ transferable credits. That's not even possible to accomplish in my area. So all theses kids come in sophomore standing, steal the class you NEEDED to continue with your major and you have to override or talk to you advisor about alternatives. Putting that aside I really hated my time outside class here. Do not come here if you're from the coastal areas. The weather was pretty harsh but I didn't see that as the main issue. I just felt like my way of life didn't even exist here. I grew up playing a lot of sports. I was busy playing staying fit and hanging out with friends. I felt like the two categories of people at Creighton were people who watch Disney Movies on Friday nights and people who black out Friday at the bar, stumble out of bed at 11am, and crack open a cold one to fight off the shakes just in time for college football to start. I tried both groups out, then decided I shouldn't have to put myself through this anymore. Omaha has bars, restaurants that close at 9, homeless, and shootings. People work there during the day and they immediately leave to go home after. It's no place for a university.

Not a friendly campus, the students come fromBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Not a friendly campus, the students come from private Catholic schools and seem to think they are better than you. The social life is very exclusionary. You will not be invited to join things and be a part of things unless you have an in somewhere. The Greek system is filled with arrogant people. I don't understand this school's social set up. Its just not fun and the people are not nice. Any clubs you want to join requires some sort of interview process and its designed to eliminate you, not to include you. Its nonsense. I can't recommend this school because the social aspect is a big part of the college experience.
