Capital University Ask. Think. Lead.


I selected Capital University mainly because of its location, as well as the education opportunities they have. Capital is my second choice for a college. I am interested because it is a nice community, with great resources for succeeding, also because it is close to home.

Capital University's campus is located in downtown Columbus, Ohio. It is about 18 miles away (24 minute drive) from Hilliard, Ohio.
Capital is an urban private college that was founded in 1830. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 2,765 students, where 42% are male, and 58% are women. It is in a nice and safe area, and has many useful resources scattered throughout its campus. Also, it being a private college, it is known as a smaller and more "cozy" environment.

Capital University is known for having a really good Law School program, along with many other good educational opportunities. One of the major reasons why I chose this college as my backup plan is because I am interested in becoming a lawyer, and this program would be very beneficial for me.

It is said that the science building on campus is being haunted by a ghost. The ghost is supposedly a former science professor who wears a white lab coat, and is always carrying a beaker and an apothecary bottle. People have noticed lab equipment being put away (by the ghost), microscopes being flung across rooms, and animals being released from cages randomly.

One thing I really liked about Capital is it's environment. I also am very interested in their Law program. I like this college as an option because it meets my top requirements. Although I really like it, it remains my second option for school.
