went to Creighton because I was a pre-med student.

no idea of what the midwest was like. I
was pleasantly surprised.
Yes, I did join a frat and
it expanded my ability to socialize and even helped me
win a student government office. I've made friends from
all over the US (since many do come from all
over). Most importantly, CU helped me realize my dream
of becoming a doctor. I was not the best
student and I didn't get in the first time.
But with perserverance and hard work, I was able to

You make your college experience what

are much better than what you find on the coasts.
I'm very happy my children chose CU... I just
hope it helps them get to where they want to
