Hey guys! For all of you new students reading this blog, you’re in the right spot. Just because you’re already admitted doesn’t mean you can’t read my blog. I’m here to help, and more importantly I’m here to help you. So, here’s some advice from my experience. Both for surviving the classes you’re in now, and for when it comes time to sign up for more near the end of the semester. Continue reading
So, you’re sitting at home already planning your grand entrance this fall onto the Creighton scene. You’re scouring the Creighton 2016 facebook page for potential friends, and you may have already started packing!
Or, you’re at home frowning at the vast number of e-mails you have received from various universities across the nation and trying to figure out which of them you even care about. Continue reading
Freshmen reading this, get ready. As I’m sure you’ve already realized(your registration times starting shortly) registration is stressful. There’s all of these things going on, all of these classes you need to take, all of these different prerequisites that pop up, and so on and so forth.
Now stop panicking; what will happen will happen. Override forms are in Creighton Hall on the second floor; they probably won’t give you one for ENG 120, 121, or 150; and Night Classes really aren’t that bad. Continue reading

Don’t be sad, be happy! Continue reading

I basically treated my first tour of Creighton’s campus like a tour to a cool city would.
I took pictures of everything – the pictures on the walls, the person sleeping in the student center, the cool antique-looking piano in the lied center, the creepy hallway in criss, the random fish my dad held the door to COBA open for(and yes, I will add that picture here as soon as I get back to my dorm and find them on my computer) everything. And it was great. Continue reading
The student-to-faculty ratio is about 11:1; it’s a good medium-sized campus; there’s 14 NCAA Division 1 Sports, and 31 club and intramural sports. Over 200 clubs and organizations, 13 frats and sororities if you’re into that sort of thing, and… well, a lot more that I could read at you directly from the bookmark I have in front of me, but while those are all things you should look at when considering schools and applying to schools, there’s a different set when deciding on schools… Continue reading
