-Professors that are accessible
-Not much diversity or variety of students
-Omaha is stuck in an awkward spot of neither being a college town nor a huge metro area. It's a nice medium sized city, but not the most exciting place.
-Campus is in a bad part of the city.
-Not much school spirit. Only reason Qwest sells out is because of all the families and people that want to drink.
Overall:Creighton is a decent school, but it's not the place if you are looking for the "college experience." Better for those who want a small, comfortable learning environment. If you want the typical college experience in Nebraska, check out Lincoln or Kearney.

| I'm not completely in love with Creighton, but it isn't a bad place to go to school. For certain graduate studies such as medicine and law, it's a great school to go to. However, the undergraduate program is slightly above average. The diversity and variety of students is pretty low, but if you went to a Catholic high school (especially Jesuit) or are from Omaha, you shouldn't have a problem fitting in. The professors I thought were helpful and knowledgeable in their fields of study. Omaha isn't a terrible city, but it's pretty bland unless you love to go out to eat or drink. The weather is pretty all over the place. The winter is pretty cold and snowy. Again, not a bad school, but I probably would have liked somewhere a little more diverse. |

| I did not like Creighton University at all. I am from the East Coast and wanted to get away for school and go to a challenging University. From everything I heard Creighton University seemed like a good place to do that. However, I was disappointed in many ways once I attended the University. First off, the diversity of the student body is minimal. Most of the people are Midwestern, white, Catholics from Nebraska, Iowa or Missouri. They are close-minded, clicky and somewhat dull. The academic programs were pretty good, but some of the professors seemed unapproachable. That kind of set me off a little bit. The campus isn't ugly, but it isn't a thing of beauty either. You also have to be careful, the ghetto is right next door and wandering too far off you will be in it before you know it. The weather sucks. Lots of cold, lots of snow, lots of thunderstorms. The social aspect is pretty low. Most students hang out in dorms or go to fraternity parties on the weekends and drink. The fraternities are a joke, they are basically guys paying dues to party. They lack housing and other ammenities typical of fraternities. Omaha isn't a very exciting city. You have the Old Market, the Qwest Center and that's about it. I left after a year and now attend a university more suited to my needs. |
