New Student Orientation

The mission of New Student Orientation at Creighton University is to aid all new students in their transition to the Creighton community. New Student Orientation does this by meeting students where they are and introducing them to the Jesuit values and mission of Creighton. We integrate new students into Creighton life by intentionally providing academic and social opportunities to develop life skills and creating an inclusive environment, so parents and families of Creighton feel just as welcome as the new students. 

The first two programs that allow for this growth, are Summer Preview and Welcome Week.

Summer Preview is Creighton's summer orientation program and is required for all incoming new first-year and transfer students. Our summer orientation experience is designed to help you make a smooth transition from high school to college. During your two-day orientation experience, you will explore and learn about campus in a small group of students led by one of the Summer Preview Guides. On day two, you will work with your academic advisor to plan your fall semester class schedule and register for classes. We encourage you to bring parents or family members to attend with you. We will have a concurrent orientation program designed specifically for them.

Welcome Week is an immersion experience for all new first-year and transfer students. Welcome Week provides a comprehensive introduction to university life, including the skills necessary to be a successful Creighton Student within and beyond the classroom. During Welcome Week, you will build connections with new and current students, discover Creighton traditions, become familiar with campus expectations, and learn more about how to get connected and engaged on campus.
