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.

Hometown: Hyattsville, Maryland
What I’ve learned from working with Capitol Students: You'll be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a day if you optimize your time down to the last second.
My advice to someone applying to Capitol: Talk to an admissions counselor, and feel free to reach out to me. I have had many conversations with students who know they want to code or major in a STEM field but really can't determine which one. A lot of times, I make suggestions based on our conversation, which usually ends with me sending them the curriculum and explaining how it could align with their goals. I'm a first-generation college graduate; if you find yourself in the same boat, definitely reach out for any questions. I know from first-hand experience how intimidating and daunting processes can be; definitely use me as a resource.
What I love most about Capitol: The curriculum. On the website, you can read about how in-depth and hands-on the curriculum is structured. When I talk about Capitol, I emphasize how, from day one, you're already building your foundation and doing really cool projects in your freshman and sophomore years, and how the hands-on approach really puts you ahead of the curve.
