4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The only reason I came to school here is because of the financial aid.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nothing happens at Capital. The only parties (at the houses on Sheridan and College) are busted by midnight.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: It is awful. There are 3 places to each on campus. All 3 places are run by Parkhurst Dining, so its all made the exact same way and its all gross. There are no healthy options. We have a salad bar, which in almost a year of being here, I have not yet seen fresh. The lettuce and fruit and vegetables are usually old, dried out, and wilted. Each meal swipe is worth $6.50 in food, but when divided, the meal plan makes each meal cost about $12, depending on which meal plan you have. We have two Starbucks on campus, which you cannot use meal swipes or Starbucks gift cards at. Our meal plans do not extend to any local restaurants. Dining hall hours are awful.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings are damaged. I had my ceiling leak for 9 days without it being fixed. Residence life refused to replace my things that were damaged from the roof leaking. Our "quads" are four people stuck in one room, rather than suite style like most schools have. In addition, you don't get to choose to be in a quad or not, you're just put there. The buildings are dirty and something is always broken. There is only 4 showers for the 30-40 people on each hall. The showers are usually gross and the hot water will stop working for a day or two every once in a while. The lighting in the rooms is horrible as well.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life not only allows you to meet great people but also to get really involved and build a good resume.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The rival games against Otterbein are fun

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: You can get almost any kind of food you want right on main street.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I like most of my professors...

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It took me forever to get my extra loan approved and then they charged me a late fee -__-

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are buses that take you to the fun bars downtown and OSU is always an option when nothing is going on at Capital.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is good, especially at One Main cafe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are great because you meet a lot of new people but they could definitely use an update.

3 College Freshman

Administration: A lot of people drink in dorms underage, and the noise can sometimes be so terrible that I can't even sleep. The RA's seem to attempt to stop it, but then some just give up after a while. This can become very annoying.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not really a party person, I just get bord babysitting. The funny thing is that I always know were the drunks are, which I think is kinda ironic. The only party that I went to was at Kappa Sigmas house and there was marijuana and beer, those things both make me sick so I just stay away.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students typically tend to dress in their own fashion, whether that be sweatpants or full out outfits from Forever 21. The fashion here is different depending on the persons or person.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Because Capital is in a very nice neighborhood so one might expect expensive food. There are cafes and chains like Chipotle, but as a student you must be careful not to walk to far or you enter the bad sections of town.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is very apparent here, and the student involvement is huge. The facilities are very clean, but I wish that the weight rooms were a bit bigger and more impressive.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The people in the Financial Aid Office are always very nice, and have always bee very accommodating. Some tips for getting financial aid is to apply for grants and scholarships, and to do a lot of community work. Plus if your Lutheran, you can recieve a scholarship for that!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is very popular here, though I do have to say some are I bit snootier than others. This though probably happens at many colleges, I just wish when rushing the people would stay nice not just pretend then after go back to being mean. That isn't what Greek life is about.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus allows me to meet new people and to spread my wings. The dorms are older but still comfortable, though sometimes the heat is unbearable in the summer due to lack of air conditioning, but this allows the students to respect what they have back home. The rooms could always be worse, but the people are what really make my college experience exciting. My college has become my home and my roommates are like my sisters.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: But you can always find something.

2 College Junior

Athletics: The spaciousness and quality of the fitness center is low and poor.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Its crazy how much you loose if you do not stay an on-campus resident.

4 College Junior

Majors: the professors here are fantastic. you really have the opportunity to develop relations with them and they stop at nothing to help.
