Capitol is a great university for the academically minded. The campus is isolated and the student population is so small that everyone knows everyone and crime is virtually nonexistent. It's a very focused school, so don't expect to have big parties every weekend; people tend to stick to hosting small game nights with close friends every now and then. There are lots of fun events, though, from Zombie Week in the fall, to campus-wide movie nights every season.
If you ever run into problems with professors or your major, there are many outlets Capitol provides to help get you back on track.

I love Capitol Technology University because it is a small college where everyone knows everyone. When you are on campus you automatically fit in because there is at least one thing you have in common with another person. I also like how the school supports interaction with others and provide students activities and events to participate in. Not only is it great socially but they also provide professors that are determined to help you understand a subject that you may be struggling with. The professors always find new ways to teach the class while staying on the subject. They do multiple methods of teaching so that they can understand how the student learns better. Also, the classes are smaller than other universities so that gives people a chance to get to know their professor on a personal level and it gives students connections with job opportunities in the process.
Online classes are very fun to attend. The professors are easy to reach and communicate with. Classes are interactive and often rely on the input of the students using online features such as polls, text chat, and screen sharing.
