Capital University Reviews
Review Capital University
Capital is a place for everyone. There are so many student organizations that welcome everyone and it feels like a home away from home. The staff is very interested in making sure everyone has what they need and making sure the school year is a success. Personally, I had met with my music professor before I chose Capital and she gave me a free lesson, tips, and method books! All of the returning students are so welcoming during the orientation days. I am very glad I chose Capital University.
Cap is nice in theory, but in reality, at least with my freshman class, I don’t know a single person who doesn’t party and drink a ton on the weekends. I have seen it first hand, and as a non-drinker and non-partier, it makes me VERY uncomfortable. As a nursing major, I feel like the nursing degree isn’t taken as seriously here. For example, every one of my friends who are nursing majors at different schools are not taking the bs classes Cap makes us take freshman year, but they are actually taking classes that are important to our major, like anatomy and physiology and microbiology, and are then having more time in the clinical field. Other than that the food isn’t great, as has been mentioned, but there are some really great extracurricular activities and President Paul is really a great woman.
The Capital University experience is one I would not trade for the world. Everyone here is friendly, the professors want you to succeed, and you can always feel at home. The campus is small, though, so if you don't mind running into people that you know then you're all set!
