Welcome to New Student Orientation at Creighton University!

Since 1947 at the very first "Week of Welcome for Freshmen" Creighton has provided orientation and welcome sessions for its newest students...  Today, our mission is to help New Jays with their transition into the Creighton Community.  We hope to empower both students and families with the skills, knowledge, and resources that will enable our students to be successful at Creighton academically, socially, spiritually, and recreationally. Recognizing that we at Creighton are charged with helping educate the whole person, New Student Orientation seeks to give New Jays a "head start" in their transition to Creighton!

How do we do this?
