The university was founded as Creighton College on September 2, 1878 through a gift from Mary Lucretia Creighton, who stipulated in her will that a school be established in memory of her husband, prominent Omaha businessman Edward Creighton. Edward's brother, John A. Creighton, is credited with fostering and sustaining the university's early growth and endowment. In 1958, the college split into a prep school and the present-day Creighton University.

Student Life

  • One thing’s for sure: there’s always something to do on campus. Start at Rollie’s Roost in the Skutt Student Center for a quick game of billiards. After your win, head to Jack & Ed’s for a slice or two.
  • Too much pizza? Squeeze in a workout at the Kiewit or Rasmussen fitness centers. Maybe you’ll make it in time for a fitness class. Take fitness further and join one of our sports clubs. Ultimate frisbee, anyone? You can also try intramurals. See what they’re up to on Twitter.
  • Now that you’ve had a workout, head to the Lied Education Center for the Arts to exercise your mind and spirit. Catch a music or dance event at this impressive 350-seat performance venue. Art history, theatre and visual arts students also use this space to showcase their work.
