    What excited you most about choosing Creighton as your university?

    Research [opportunities for undergraduate students]. I was able to do research at a point that was unheard of in other universities.

    What opportunities have made your Creighton experience unique and valuable?

    I have been able to travel to national conferences as a freshman and will continue to go to them throughout my sophomore year. I have had wonderful opportunities to take part in when I got involved with the physics department.

    What do you think sets Creighton apart from other universities?

    The professors really truly do care. They are very willing to help out any student with virtually any issue they are having about a class.

    From your experience, what do you feel are Creighton’s strengths in preparing students for their future?

    Creighton does a great job making sure students know that getting a job is not purely a function of the student’s GPA. They make sure students network as undergraduates.
