I love this school. It has everything I need at my finger tips to get my education. It has courses that meet my expectations for the degree that I am majoring in. the faculty try their best to help you and any areas as needed.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

Capitol College is a great place for academics and has probably the best job placement gurantee around. However, due to the lack in number of students attending, there are no athletic teams but are intramurals, and there is not much of a social life on campus. I think the tradoff for academics outweighs the lack of social life though.
