It's a nice place, small, which is what I needed. The teachers actually listen when you have a problem, even if they tend to get on you about work. They recently remodeled and I couldn't be happier to see what's in store!

The academics at the university is mostly towards cyber security, computer science, engineering, aerospace, and business. The professors and teachers for those academics are really good. One of the professors really helps the newcomers to any class he teaches and breaks it down for you. The learning center is a perfect place to go to if your struggling really bad in one of your classes.

The campus is really small, but doesn't have a lot of things to do unless an event is going on. Students can live in the towers that is shared between other universities like college park and Bowie near the Metro. A shuttle does travel between those two places to drop off students who have classes. There's no major parties going on campus and sports teams we have that play seriously. The campus have a lot of geeks and nerds that is into computers, video games, and anime.

Finally, the financial aid office will help anyway they can to help your tuition and make sure you can come to Capitol.
This University was a great experience for me. I learned alot of material in 5 years. My favorite thing about this school is that the professors care. They will go out of their way to help you as much as they can. Also, the classes are smaller which makes it easier for learning.
