Welcome to the Creighton Knights of Columbus - - On Campus
The history of our Council has been interesting, several years ago the Creighton Knights were really active, but recruiting new members is not always easy and when the council seniors graduated our council went dormant. Recently however, our council has jumped from 6 active members to just over 50, making us the quickest growing fraternity on Creighton’s Campus.

But Wait There's More!
If you think that was a lot just wait for next year, we have some really big plans, and what is great about the Knights is that you can put as much or as little time into it. We are here to serve you as much as others, so if you have some big ideas I the KofC is the right place to help make those ideas into a reality!
