What I’ve learned from working with Capitol Students: Best practices for optimizing one’s D&D character.

My advice to someone applying to Capitol: Apply for external scholarships - these are awarded by organizations that are not affiliated with the university.  Many of these scholarship applications have deadlines occurring as early as September/October, so don’t wait until you receive your financial aid package to start your search.  Google “scholarships” and you’ll find dozens of free search engines that you can use to look for scholarships.

What I love most about Capitol: There are many things, but one that I feel often goes uncelebrated is the amount of collaboration that takes place throughout the school and community as a whole.  Regardless of your chosen major or expertise, you’re going to gain skills that are supplementary to what is included in your classes.  I think it’s great that students are encouraged to collaborate with their peers and faculty members outside of their own majors.

What I’ve learned from working with Capitol Students: Best video game practices and how to win at chess.

My advice to someone applying to Capitol: Don’t wait for the last possible moment. I know that putting something off to the last minute is easy but you may miss unique opportunities. Like a once in a lifetime experience or maybe even a full tuition scholarship. Take these opportunities and learn from them. You never know if these experiences will come in handy one day.

What I love most about Capitol: I love the unique hands on curriculum and the professors willingness to help/guide/mentor. The things you learn in and out of the classroom are tools that you will be able to utilize in the workplace. The community is something not to look past either. Being able to see students in class or even in the library talking about their specific interests is always amazing to see and hear.

What I’ve learned from working with Capitol Students: That technology is the most important industry in the world!

My advice to someone applying to Capitol: 1) There are so many STEM programs and majors to choose from at Capitol. Choose one that you believe will guide you to success and make you happy! 2) Make sure to complete your FAFSA and Scholarship applications by their designated deadlines!

What I love most about Capitol: I love that Capitol allows and encourages everyone to be unapologetically themselves! There’s plenty of room for every student, faculty member, or staff member to be authentic and express themselves in order for us to be productive. The sense of collaboration and teamwork works in the very fabric of this university and I’m so happy to be a witness to it.
