Someone should come to creighton because this school has a lot to offer. Everyone, staff and students, are so welcoming and accepting. There are Jesuits (Since creighton is a catholic-Jesuit university) all around campus who will be very happy to chat with between classes. Also, for a midwest school, there are many Hawaii students like me who decided to take on the task of obtaining a degree from a prestigious school. Currently there are 200 plus hawaii residents at creighton university. You can bet that our yearly public Luau is awesome, we fly in hawaiian chefs and throw a terrific party. Which is an even better reason to attend creighton. But most of all, creighton is a university that cares about student success both in and out of school. Many staff and faculty will take the time to sit down and help any student map out their plans and goals for a successful career. They make sure that every student success is their priority both in and out of the classroom.

  1. Creighton has excellent academics. The students here genuinely want to learn and value their education.
  2. We are welcoming! There is a little niche for everyone, and a variety of fun social events that fit everyones agenda.
  3. We have fun. Work hard play hard is a great motto. Students are known for putting their all into their school work for hours on end, but also have a great time going out with friends without getting into trouble. A typical weekend for a student is homework all day, and going out to a party or a sponsored event on campus.

Although Creighton isn't located in such a big-name place such as New York or Los Angeles, its location is one to be reckoned with. Located in Omaha, an up-and-coming big city, there are quite a few opportunities. Newly graduates are bound to find career opportunities, while current students are sure to find an abundance of internships. Additionally, one may consider Creighton University due to its wealth of highly skilled professors. All classes are taught by the professors, which ensures a high quality education. Finally, Creighton University offers a very special, close community. As relatively small university of 4500 students, one may correctly assume that Creighton houses a tightly knit community. Students are welcomed to visit their professors, advisers, and peers for advice in any situation. Thus, if a blossoming city, incredible professors, and a family-like community all sound appealing, one should definitely attend Creighton University.

One reason is the holistic, caring Creighton community. The entire campus truly does feel like one big family. The faculty and staff are very knowledgable and most are extremely friendly, approachable, and always willing to advise and encourage. The small size of the university lends itself to caring for the individual while still offering the professional opportunities of a larger university.

         There are so many reasons someone should choose Creighton, and I think one of them is evident in my essays, it is my exorbitant pride to be a student at Creighton.  This pride begins with its unique community.  The Creighton community has members from all over the country from all walks of life that creates a community of understanding and compassion to each other.  Creighton quickly turns from a university to a home over the course of your freshman year, and your friends become more like family.  Although there is a vast diversity within the Creighton community, from the background of its members to their involvement, a Creighton student isn't just a Sorority or Fraternity member, or a Chemistry major, an athlete, or honors student.  At Creighton, all the stereotypical college bubbles tend to overlap, which is the reason for the sense of community. 
          One of the perks to the size of Creighton is the personable relationship you establish with your professors.  I know that all professors and teachers want what is best for their students, but with the average class size being 35 to 50 students, it is not uncommon for the professor to know each student by name.  Being able to go to a professor's office and talk over an assignment or a lecture, and then be given an article to help you understand further makes students feel taken care of and listened to.  I think it also speaks volumes of the amount of pride Creighton faculty takes in their school when it is not uncommon to see professors at sporting events, in mass on campus, at Greek events or at other Creighton sanctioned events.  
         Finally, Creighton always offers something to do.  When most people think of the college scene, they think of obnoxious parties and poor decisions.  But that's the great thing about Creighton, there is definitely a party scene, but it isn't the only- or most exciting thing- to do at Creighton.  Whether its a Tuesday afternoon or a Sunday at midnight, Creighton offers activities from petting dogs to relieve stress, a basketball game, or simply a group of students enjoying coffee or pizza.  All activities are welcomed  to everyone, and since there is such a welcoming atmosphere at Creighton, everyone loves to get to know their peers and include their Creighton family.  Besides, at the end of the day, we share one thing in common; enormous pride for our home- Creighton University.

Number one is the academics. The teachers are very approachable, and the class sizes are typically small so you can receive the attention you deserve. Second is the atmosphere. Everyone is extremely accepting and fun to be around. Third is the opportunities to get involved. There are plenty of clubs and organizations to get involved in.

Being a smaller school of around 4,500 undergraduate students, there are many reasons a student should attend Creighton. One reason I chose Creighton is because I knew I would be invested in and supported by the faculty. I knew the smaller atmosphere would allow much more intimate working relationships with the faculty, and they would be invested in my success. Another reason a student would choose Creighton is the student environment. The campus is full of the trust and friendliness between students. Asking for help from a fellow student is not only possible but encouraged. I feel comfortable and safe on campus and around other students, which is both important and encouraging. The last reason I will list as a reason to come to Creighton is because it is a challenging school. Upper levels of education are meant to push students to become who they are meant to be, and that end goal does not come without challenge. Creighton has created an environment that is challenging, requires student and professor collaboration, and encourages the growth of every student. Involvement in organizations as well as academic success and relationships are all encouraged at Creighton. I am honored to attend such a university as Creighton.

Creighton provides a top of the line education. It can be a demanding school, but those that put the effort in are always rewarded. The PT program is extremely organized and provides a feeling of being amongst a family. The final reason would be the assortment of activities ranging from Creighton basketball to the College World Series.
