Class gift

You can celebrate your reunion with a class gift! 

You can support any area, but we encourage making a gift to scholarships, especially to the school or college you graduated from. 

You know the value of a Creighton education. This is an experience unlike any other. Scholarships offer the Creighton opportunity to even more excellent students.  

With your help, thousands more can join you as Jesuit-educated leaders building their own Creighton legacies!

Creighton couple married after meeting again — 40 years later — at Reunion Weekend

They fell not for the people they were at Creighton but for who they became in the many years since. And who they became, they say, had a lot to do with attending Creighton.

A few words from our 2019 Reunion Weekend guests ...

“This was just a really special weekend for us. Life passes a little too quickly if you’re not paying attention. We just had to carve out the time to get here, and Creighton did the rest. Creighton supports Reunion Weekend so much. Once you get into it, you see, they offer so much.”

— Heidi Woodward, BA’99

“It’s just good to come back. It’s good for your soul. We went through so much together here. We were family. Life gets busy, but it’s important to come back and reconnect. Creighton … it’s just a piece of my life.”

— Diane Barry Carlson, BSN’79

“Revisiting for Reunion Weekend is really nice. I used to do so much when I was a student. I was really happy to see that I can reconnect with some of my peers here. It felt like a family when I was a student; now that I'm back, it still does.”

— Martin Jose, BS’16

“It’s just fun to come back. I have so many good memories of being a student here, so many good friends I’ve stayed in touch with.”

— Christina Bruck Heller, BA’94

“You get close-knit when you’re at Creighton. Everybody's trying to help everybody else get through. Then when it’s over, you go different directions all around the country and the world. Fifty years later, you get back together, it doesn’t take long to reunite.”

— John Parrish, DDS’69

Nearly 50 Bluejays share their favorite Creighton memories

We asked Bluejays to share their favorite Creighton memories and experiences, and we got some wonderful responses. Poignant memories, funny memories and, in a few cases, memories we couldn’t repeat within the PG-rated confines of alumni.creighton.edu!
