“I chose to attend Capital because it was a great school, it was local, had small classes and helpful grant and scholarship packages. I had to drop out of school during my senior year because of some personal challenges. But I returned to Capital because of my great experience there. I completed my BSW at Capital in 2017 and then went on to complete a Masters in Social Work at the University of Michigan.”
