After Capital University
- Very Good281
Capital University has an excellent Conservatory of Music and that is why I chose to attend that school. All of the music ensembles are advanced, talented groups, and every single one of the Professors is an expert in their field and they are dedicated to ensuring the success of each and every musician that passes through their walls. That being said, Capital is not exactly what I wanted in my dream school, mainly because of its small size and the lack of enthusiasm about sports on the campus overall. If I could pick up the Conservatory and drop it on a campus such as the University of Cincinnati, then I would. But, overall, Capital is helping me achieve my goals, and for that I am grateful!

Capital is in a small neighborhood outside of downtown Columbus, Oh. This is perfect for a lot of students who want to attend a school that is small and quiet but still have the option to go out every once in a while without the trouble of traveling too far. Bexley is a "cozy" and cute town that has a lot of shopping and dining options (especially if you have a car). Ohio State University isn't too far either and often Cap students head to their parties and events. There is also the Crew Stadium and the Columbus Blue Jackets for soccer and hockey fans in downtown Columbus. Capital sits on a major bus line and being from Columbus I have taken a few friends that I have met around town on the bus and they loved it! The only down side is the local neighborhood that surrounds campus..Its not the most friendly or safe but Capital works very hard to make sure every student feels safe and protected!

I do not live off-campus, but from what I have heard from my friends it is not hard to do at all! Our campus is small so even living off-campus you won't have more than a 15min. drive to campus. There are many different options around our campus from apartment buildings to houses. Most of them are already used by students, so when the year ends a lot of them open up for next year. There are parking lots for the apartment buildings and each house/condo has a driveway with plenty of parking. There is also street parking available.
