Hi there. I am a student who is currently deciding on which two pharm schools to attend this fall. The program in Omaha is the Creighton pharmacy program.

I am from the Seattle, Washington area, and am wondering what are some of your guy's opinion between the lifestyle of these two midwest cities? I know Omaha or Indy aren't as "liberal" as Seattle.

I am also an Asian male, so how would I fit into Omaha?

Are there any good Korean restaurants in Omaha? No, not PK Changs. That's not even Korean food! At least that's what a taxi driver told me when I stopped over in Kansas City at one time.

As for housing, are the apartments or rental houses near Creighton in a good part of town? I ask because one friend told me it's the "ghettoes" in the northern section.

Please share your information and opinions! Thanks!

The bad part of area is small, and the housing around Creighton is generally good, and we do have some good Korean Restaurants (theres some old link back here, I'll dig it up later) Also, my dad teaches Pharmacy at Creighton, so of course I will recommend Creighton.

Omaha has Korean restaurants although I can't vouch for their quality or their authenticity. If you're using Seattle as a yardstick for comparison, I think Omaha would win, hands down over Indianapolis. Omaha's indie music scene has been compared to Seattle's, albeit smaller. Omaha has a very active and surprisingly sophisticated arts/theater/music/literature scene for a city it's size, as well as a sizeable "alt" community, especially in the eastern half of the city. In all honesty, having spent some time in Indianapolis, I think you'd feel much more at home in Omaha.

2 Korean restaurants in Omaha, maybe a couple more near Offutt Air Force Base.

Cool cool! Thank you Go Ne for the information on Korean restaurants in Omaha area! I never expected there to be any Korean restaurants in the midwest. Oh, and if I do attend Creighton's pharmacy program, I will be seeing your dady!

I am not much of an indie music fan, so that won't be a factor in deciding whether Omaha is a right city for me to reside in for the next four years. However, I did get the impression that the arts and music lifestyle of Omaha does resemble that of Seattle.

I am glad that there is a poster like you who lived in both Omaha and Indy.

Omaha seemed less big than Indianapolis. But I probably won't even have the time to see any NFL football games or NBA basketball games while I'm in school.

Thanks for the feedback, smitty77.

There is a very authentic Korean dive near the Offutt AFB gates called Korea House.
