Scholarships: I got a significant amount of financial aid from Capital. They were helpful and accommodating with the payment process as well. Some tips would be to put multiple activities that you were involved and and keep a good grade point average in high school.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Mezz is probably the best place to eat on campus. It has freshly prepared pasta, salads, and pizza and the staff is great. The MDR is convenient and has a wide variety of options. The One Main Cafe is also good. It offers scack wraps, burgers, chicken tenders, chili fries, and french fries. It also has an area wher you can buy food with flex dollars for on the go such as yogurt, milk, tea, chip, fruits, and slim jims, just to name a few.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The hall that I live in is called Saylor-Ackermann and it is really spacious and friendly. The rooms and halls are big and the bathroom has multiple stalls and showers. The Salyor side is the most updated. There is a Cafe on the first floor that none of the other dorms have as well as a fireplace and flat screen T.V.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have friends who have lived off-campus and prefer and also those who thought it wasn't worth it and decided to stay on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat off campus very often. When i do I usually just head to one of the fast food places.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration takes care of very prominent issues fairly well. A lot of small things go unnoticed but it is a college campus so that's bound to happen anywhere.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a very reasonable scholarship with no extra application. My application to the school doubled as my financial aid application so it was very simple. The earlier you apply the better your financial aid package.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't involve myself in the party scene. I have some friends who enjoy it but I can't give an accurate rating from personal experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The variety of food is pretty poor. Once you have eaten on campus for awhile there are limited choices on what is available.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very clean and larger than expected. The entire hall of girls that I live with are all friends and all get along great.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not applied for off campus housing so I am not sure how helpful anyone is.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is Chipotle, Piada, JimmyJohns, and The Rusty Bucket around here and they are in walking distance.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is just ok nothing crazy. Seems like they try to get everyone in trouble.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid is pretty good but there is not many other ways to get good financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It is ok but nothing crazy. Downtown and near OSU is the best place.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is edible that is about the only good thing about the food in the MDR.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is nothing great but it is alright. The dorms are kind of run down.

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.
