Features > Omaha, NE (October 2008) > A Visit to Creighton University


As we did last year, GE Healthcare recruited for IMLP Interns at Creighton University. Below are some photos of the Creighton campus and how it has changed in the last year along with Omaha in general.

Opus Square is one of the newer residence halls at Creighton

Wow...I'm not sure if students can say "Meet me on the Venteicher Mall"

Some things remain the same - like the Admin...errr...I mean Creighton Hall

The squirrels of Creighton!

Next I went to visit my friends Daniel and Andrea as well as their daughter Aderyn. Here Aderyn is throwing bread to the birds.


IMG_3174
They were supposed to throw it on the count of three but two was as far as Aderyn got before throwing her bread


IMG_3175
Aderyn looks at a ladybug that landed on her hand, later it dropped off and she accidentally stepped on it - poor ladybug...


IMG_3178
Daniel works as a grassroots promoter of energy efficiency, he's letting the non-CFL blub on the left burn out before he upgrades that


IMG_3179
We also visited the new J Robert Kerry Pedestrian Bridge over the Missouri River, it's very fancy


IMG_3180


IMG_3187
A nice LED installation near the bridge, I think it's supposed to look like prarie grass


IMG_3189


IMG_3190
There's Iowa just across the river!


IMG_3192
And the Qwest Center just behind the bridge


IMG_3195


IMG_3196


IMG_3201


IMG_3204
Aderyn, Andrea, and Daniel


IMG_3207
You can see St. Cecelia's in the background with two towers, and to the left of that Creighton's....Creighton Hall dimly lit


IMG_3210
The National Parks office for the region is on the Nebraska side of the bridge and is evidently a very green/LEED certified building


IMG_3216

IMG_3253
Aderyn emerges from a teepee


IMG_3259
One of the pillars of the suspension bridge reflected in the National Park building, I was waiting for it to turn green since it was cycling through the colors quite fast when we arrived but as we left it was purple for at least 5-10 minutes. The one near the Iowa side was still cycling though...


IMG_3273

IMG_3291
Aderyn says goodnight to Daniel


IMG_3294
An evil cursed cat!


IMG_3296
Daniel loves power efficiency so he has this fancy meter that shows by the color of the LED on top if it's peak, medium, or off-peak energy time and by the speed the LED lights in the arc across the top how much energy the house is consuming. He's installed geothermal heating in his house


IMG_3301
Another evil cat...


IMG_3303
An ad for Siemens Medical Systems at O'Hare...I'm sure they don't have the answers!
