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!

I came from a small high school and I wanted to attend a smaller school. Capital University the perfect example of a small school. I am so glad i made the choice I did. Capital is located in Bexley, a small town, but only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the big city--Columbus. Being at a small school, I know most of the students in all of my classes and all of my professors. Campus is friendly and most students are very involved in on-campus events. Some people think that going to a small college keeps you from really experiencing college, but that's not true. College is a crazy ride with lots of ups and downs and you will experience that at any school you attend. By being a small school Capital provides you with support through it all.

Even though the freshman dorm was super hot all the time, we had problems with meal swipes, and the parking situation is't all that great, I would choose my school all over again. The teachers are very personable, knowledgeable, sometimes a tad eccentric, and helpful. If there was anything I was struggling with, they'd gladly setup a meeting time so we could meet, and they were very attentive. They made sure I understood everything before I left their class or office. The students are equally friendly as they are willing to bond over what we perceive as the flaws of our school. There are no such things as lonely Friday nights because you'll either be exploring the town with them, or playing board games with a group of friends. Capital is my home away from home, and I'm so glad I go there.
