Capital University Reviews
The campus is beautiful and they have a prestigious reputation, but looks can be deceiving. I was a music major, and I had a horrible experience for my four years there. Most of the professors were pretty nice and helpful. Some were the most horrible people I've ever met. Some professors like to play God and tell you what will never happen in your lifetime. NOT a positive environment for older students, nor for anybody with conservative values, unless you're ready to keep it an absolute secret and fall in line with all the lefty snowflakes. Chapel Choir members can do no wrong. Good food and friendly staff in eating areas though. That way you don't have to go ALL day without interaction with other decent human beings. The Dean is an awesome person and a good listener. I couldn't have survived it without her. Once I went to student teach - my coop had had a very similar experience. Had to go to counseling after graduation to get over all the rejection and verbal abuse.
Good academics and faculty, most professors are super helpful! Class size is pretty small, good for someone who likes student faculty interaction and ask questions. On campus life, the student body is pretty conservative. ROI is good if you study hard, no problem getting a job in public accounting for me. The downside is the food, it has gone downhill like 2 years ago since the operation got outsourced to a different company.
It's a relatively small campus, so getting from one side to the other takes about 5-10 minutes, which is ideal for me. I personally don't like big campuses where there are too many buildings to even remember where anything is. I'm not sure if this is how every college is, but the professors here teach the students like mature adults and it is a freeing feeling. I'm trusted to do my work, and when things get in the way of my work, they are understanding and usually willing to extend deadlines since life can be difficult sometimes. It's more diverse here than at my high school and I love seeing other Asian American students besides myself. There is also a strong LGBTQ+ presence with many diverse clubs and communities. I feel comfortable here and I found a great friend group within a week.
