What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The accesibility of help when it is needed in a class. The professors knowing all of their students by name.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit each college that you are interested in. Ask as many questions as possible concerning the college, college life, the teaching staff, etc. Encourage hard work and focus on grades- concidering that most will want to continue to higher education beyond undergraduate. Tell begining students to get involved, even if they don't like the activities- its neccessary for meeting people with similar interests of study and it looks good on applications and resumes as well.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Worst thing would be recieving helpful direction from advisors with such things as choosing a major or what to do after undergraduate

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Not being able to join all the clubs I want due to playing a sport as well as not being able to fit things like studying abroad into my schedule without taking more than 4 years to graduate

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

A prospective student should consider a college based upon what they intend to major and minor in. Some may not know exactly what they plan to major in so they should choose a college that offers a real diverse curriculum and career opportunites program. They should take into consideration the setting, the area, the culture, the political atmosphere, the excellence of the educational staff and financial packages. Is the college a tolerant and diverse one? Do they maintain high academic standards? Do they work hard to assist the graduates in post-graduate career positions? Do they strive to go the 'extra' mile when it comes to making sure each student is served well and to succeed? Do they show a personal interest in their students? Are they understanding with struggling students and those that face extreme adversity while attending there? Are they steadfast in making sure the student gets his/her bang for her buck educationally, socially, and athletically?

Small and quaint with amazing professors, which at times has administrative issues.

The class size is very small, and the professors are very friendly and willing to get to know the students - even those who are not in any of their classes. We have even had department parties at my professors houses. It's very nice and makes getting help from them - whether it be class-related or career-related - very easy.

Make sure that during the selection process, you take the time to visit every college you are considering, and not only speak to the tour guides and admissions counselors, but also other students who are on campus; they will give a more accurate picture of the real experience at that college. Be sure to also take into consideration the kind of reputation the college has, especially in the field that you are planning to enter; you don't want to get stuck with a degree that isn't worth much. When you've picked the place and made it there, to make the most of your experience make sure that you get to know your professors - they are not only good resources during your time at college, but can also be valuable in helping you to find a job. Also, remember that it takes awhile to get used to college - don't give up on a school after only a few weeks; it's possible you just haven't found your place yet. Above all, while it is important to study and remember that academics should always come first, don't be afraid to have fun and try new things!

Capital is a small, interactive, and friendly university in a small town with the city environment of Columbus less than 10 minutes away.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are friendly and always will to work with each other to try and get the best they can out of school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would highly encourage students to learn as much as possible about the colleges that they are interested in. Ask lots of questions, it could be anything from can Freshman have cars on campus to are the Professors are hard? Campus tours are also a great way to get to know colleges. Ask if you can sit in a class that pretains to something the student wants to study. This way the student will know if they like the classroom environment that they could be in for the next four years. Another good idea is to see if you can talk with a professor, they more than anyone will be able to help the student in their focus of study. The college environment is a huge part to finding the right college. Questions to ask would be is the area around campus safe, is there campus police patroling the area, what is the alcohol policy on campus, are fraternities a major part of the campus population, are there other student organizations based in the students intrests or are they in small majority, are there church services on campus? Ask these questions to get a rounded idea of a campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure the colleges that you choose are well suited for you. Not too big or not too small. If you enjoy one on one interaction with your professors, make sure they are willing to do that with you whenever needed. To make the best of your college experience, don't fall into peer pressure. Make adequate time for studying and for friends. No matter what - school comes first. You or your parents aren't paying this money for nothing! Stay true to yourself. You don't have to drink or do drugs to fit in or to be well liked. Take it from someone that knows from person experience. :)

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that enjoys small classes and one on one interaction should attend Capital University. Very tight-knit relationships, everybody knows everybody and a person that enjoys seeing a smile every day. :)

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about Capital is the number of students that don't attend class because the professor is so laid back. It only affects their grade in the end, but it's just so frustrating to know they are paying as much money as they do and choose not to come to class for whatever reason it may be. I find it to be quite disrespectful.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit the college and ask current students and professors questions about the school. The administrative staff involved with recruiting won't tell you anything important. There is going to be something wrong with every college, but you have to find what is tolerable or not.

What's unique about your campus?

The freedom to personalize my degree was much appreciated.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The one thing I didnt realize when I was in highschool is that there is life afterwords. I didnt make the most of my highschool days, so I now spend most of my time in college figuring out how to study, who I am, and what I want to be. Students trying to find the right college should weight out every option. What I mean by every option is school expenses, athletics, area, class room sizes, etc. There is so much to decide on before picking a college. What a student or parent should not look at is how far away they are going to be from each other, or where their friends are going. Things like this can deprive the student of their full college experience, or full potential.
