What I’ve learn 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 learn from working with Capitol Students: Capitol students have taught me to how to be my true authentic self.

My advice to someone applying to Capitol:Sign up for campus tours! When visiting, do not be afraid to ask your tour guide or current student’s questions about their college experience. It is so important to get feedback from students who currently attend.

Why I work in admissions:During my undergrad, I worked in the admissions office for my alma mater as a student ambassador. I loved meeting prospective students and sharing my college experience with families. That was when it became clear to me that I wanted to pursue this interest into a full time career.

What I love most about Capitol: Our Capitol Commitment, which guarantees that our students will get a job within 90 days of graduation, in their field of study and at a competitive salary.

What I’ve learn from working with Capitol Students: I have a whole new appreciation for technology and people who are interested in applying themselves through the education of technology. There’s so much more that goes into it than what meets the eye. Technology is used for almost everything we do in our daily lives.

My advice to someone applying to Capitol: I recommend applying the first semester of your senior year. That way students have a good amount of time to go through their college selection process, make changes to things if necessary, and get financial aid and logistics sorted out. Also, remembering to complete your application by providing documentation in a timely manner can save lots of stress.

What I love most about Capitol: Everyone is allowed to be themselves and do their own thing. There’s no expectation of how things should be or what you should already know. It’s a place that is open and accepting of everyone’s personal growth and learning.
