What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
If you are eligible for the honors dorm make sure that you send your housing application in really soon. There is limited space and it is on a first come first serve basis.
Jordan from Frankfort, OH
Submit your housing application early. Make sure to have some extra spending money for weekend meals because the dining hours can be kind of inconvenient. Take advantage of the opportunities during orientation to attend club meetings and meet other students.
Rachel
Look into it more than just a brochure or course list. I was not so excited about it until I came down for my visit and got to see the campus and interact with the people. The town of Bexely has so much going on, that it was a fit as soon as I set foot on campus.
Andrea from Akron, OH
If your a student who likes meeting new people and getting involved than Capital might be the school for you. Capital's staff will lead a hand and help you get the most out of your experience in college.
Sarah from Columbus, OH
For students who are interested in applying to Capital University do it! Prospective students need to and stay determined. And know how to use your time well; remember studies first play time later!
DeShawn from Detroit, MI
try your hardest to achieve good grades in high school because it will matter when trying to get a scholarship from capital. also, if you enjoy the small atmosphere and the opportunity to interact with your teachers, then capital is the place for you!
Brittany from Columbus, OH
-JOIN 'SMOOTH TRANSISTIONS' (after school starts you is going to be saying I'm so thankful for smooth transistions, it really helped alot!)
-Come in open minded
- If your the type of shy person like me that in my shell then after being here for just a few, you will see a HUGE change for the good!
- Wait until you get an email from your teacher to tell you which books to buy and/or wait till you have the first class and your teacher will tell you what you really need and don't have to really get.
-Join organizations ( there is something for everyone! <3)
I'm on the Crusaders Dance Team at Capital University and it has been an absolute blast <3 and SOLA(Students of Latino Affinity)
Antonia (Toni) from Canal Winchester, OH
Capital University is a very accredited school. We have great courses, a variety of activities, sports, many organizations/clubs, small classroom sizes, great food, cool dorms and apartments, teachers who care, and overall a warm atmosphere.
Ashley from Cincinnati, OH
Apply early, and get your FAFSA done. If/when you get accepted stay on top of everything. The teachers will help as well as the CELT center.
Antoine from Lithonia, GA
Having a really good ACT score will allow you to get into the honors dorm. And if being in honors is something you might be interested in, apply early.
