Capital University Reviews
Review Capital University
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 really loved how friendly everyone was. You know everyone on campus in a pretty short time, and I liked that the staff was always so welcoming. #CapFam is a real thing! However, the food is a huge minus. The cafeteria has poor gluten free items, and simple things like coffee are to expensive. A lot of the dorms are not ADA regulatory as well.
What i love about Capital Universtiy is the ablility to do whatever I want. Becauase it is a small campus I am able to be a part of many different clubs, be involved in sports, and be a nursing major. No where else I looked let me do all of this. Another thing I loved about Capital is that the Nursing Program was direct admittance. This was so helpful. Instead of dreading and stressing about getting into a nursing program at a large school, I already knew that I was set and secure with my major. Another thing that is great about Capital is that it was my cheapest option. It may be a private school and cost a ton, they were the most generous with scholarships and financial aid. This was the most crucial in my decision making process.
