4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's really close-knit and accepting. The buildings are close so you can walk across campus in 5-10 minutes depending on your pace. People here are really friendly and outgoing but it's also really easy to have alone time when needed. The professors are extremely helpful and understanding but are qualified and make you work for your grades. The social scene is inviting and the food is really tasty. Overall, I'm glad I'm attending Capital.

Overall Experience: Cons: I really wish that I applied to more schools than I actually did apply for.

-The campus is very small (walking from one end to the other takes around 5-7 minutes depending how fast you walk) and because it is small, it also has a limited amount of majors and minors to pick from.

-Most of the buildings are very old and need much renovation (bugs love to come in the dorms when seasons change).

-If you try communicating via email or calling to the financial aid office, it is difficult. I had to search all over the website for their information. Additionally, when I was going through the process of checking which classes I took in high school get credit or waive any of the university core classes, the registrar's office and academic success were both telling me two different things so most of the time, you're on your own for getting everything set straight and finding your own information.

-The food is not the best but it's alright (then again Capital is changing food services this year so it might be better). We get flex dollars (which is a plus) but you don't get to use it at restaurants surrounding campus.

-Housing lottery is a nightmare.

Pros:

-I love the Greek life. Although there are only 4 social fraternities and sororities each, it's nice that it's small because we are like a family and it's easier to actually get to know everyone. The only sad thing about Greek life is that we cannot have Greek houses like most universities have where the entire chapter lives there. We are only allowed to apply for themed halls and houses (apartments with 5 people living there).

-They are generous in scholarships.

-The library is my favorite study spot. The third floor is where most people study when they need a quiet space and the first and second floors are where people study and talk (there are also group study rooms). The first floor is also a 24 hour study space so you can be there all night if you need to.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm extremely excited to try and live off campus next year as a junior. Hopefully, I can find an off-campus house and will not have to deal with the lottery again.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I absolutely love Capital's nightlife. It is a great time to relax from studying and to take time to hang out with your friends as well as meet new people!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining in Bexely is great! There are many options that are within walking distance. My friends and I walk to Chipotle all the time after volleyball practices.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration faculty are very helpful and willing to help you learn and succeed in every class. Professors and advisors quickly respond to emails.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: MDR has the most choices to eat while on Capital's campus. It is nice to have One Main Cafe and The Mez open after 7:00 pm to give students more options to dine at later times.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: By applying for financial aid, I was able to receive money to use towards my tuition and books. I received it on time and everything went smoothly for my first year at Capital University!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As a student who lives on campus, I love meeting new people and friends throughout the dorm halls. At Capital, there are many options to campus housing. Between the four campus dorms, there is minimal walking distance which is great to hanging out and studying with your friends!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: For being located near a huge city, I feel very safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities are really nice and well maintained, except for the tennis courts and no pool.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of different off-campus dining options but very few offer student discounts.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Quite a few options along main street. Chipotle, Starbucks, Jimmy Johns, etc.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Sometimes they will be lenient on the amount of noise at the beginning of the semester but became more strict as it went on.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They give scholarships generously to students who go in and talk with them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It would be nice to go off campus with flex dollars and meal swipes. Also, give more value for a meal swipe, rather than $6.50/meal swipe, because we're paying more for a meal plan than buying individual meals.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are spacious, and each student has an individual desk, bed, dresser, and closet.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Capital does not allow Greek life to have actual houses. Greek life is pretty small and there are few options.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Capital is a D3 school our lacrosse, soccer, and softball teams are pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat on main street, but you can only use your flex dollars on campus.

Administration: When there are problems around campus the students are the last to know.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Most students receive some type of aid.
