Meet Dominique. Major: BM Music IndustryHometown: Delaware, Ohio Favorite Professor: My favorite professor would have to be my advisor, Dr. Mark Lochstampfor. Doc Loch has been a driving force in both my educational and professional life, and lets me discuss - and sometimes yell - about my life in his office on a very regular basis. He has done everything in his power to make sure I complete all my courses in time, and is most likely the reason that, after 3 major changes, I am still able to graduate on time. In addition to being an amazing advisor, he is also a mentor, and most importantly, a friend. What should every college student bring to capital? A good sense of humor, and a shirt with a cat on it somewhere. Best food served at Capital and why: Anything at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Learning Luncheon. As a girl with southern roots, the fried catfish and cornbread are top notch. Favorite Main Street hang out: Giuseppe's - best Italian food in Columbus! Organizations & Activities: Capital University Rock Ensemble, Student Ambassador, President - Sigma Alpha Iota Sorority, Peer Career Advisor, Honors Program, Intern - PromoWest Productions, Small Business Beanstalk
Meet Janelle.Major: MarketingHometown: Archbold, Ohio Favorite Professor: If I had to choose, my favorite professor would be Dr. Ülkü with whom I took Production and Supply Operations Management. I really like him, because it is very obvious that he truly cares about his students and wants us to succeed. He would give us assignments that were challenging, but he would always remind us that doing this would help put us a step above other students when it comes time to apply for jobs. In addition to being a very passionate and caring professor, Dr. Ülkü is also pretty entertaining. He is a very casual professor and would sometimes teach barefoot during my class. A lot of times he would also play music for us when we came into class or he would let us request songs if we had a class work day. Professors like Dr. Ülkü are my favorite, because they make class fun and exciting, while teaching us important things that will help us down the road. What should every college student bring to capital? Every college student should bring all eight Harry Potter movies to Capital. Not only are they highly fun and entertaining to watch (3 hour study break anyone?), but having all of them can make you pretty popular with other students. Our campus seems to have a strong love for Harry Potter (The winning Lip Sync 2012 organization did a Harry Potter routine and a Pottermore craze has recently swept campus. Ravenclaws unite!), so someone will undoubtedly want to borrow them or watch them with you. Best food served at Capital and why: I love the food at the Mezz. The workers are always really friendly and the food is delicious. My favorite meal to get is the spaghetti that comes with a side salad, breadstick, and drink. The breadsticks in the Mezz are better than Olive Gardens! (Yes, that is possible.) The buddy swipe program is also a favorite of mine, because I can get a pizza with a friend for one meal swipe.Favorite Main Street hang out: Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams! Not only is their ice cream amazing, but the atmosphere is really upbeat and comfortable. There are a handful of students that work there as well, so I usually see people I know when I go to Jeni's.Organizations & Activities: I'm involved in many organizations on campus besides working in the Admission Office, including Circle K, It's Abuse, American Marketing Association, Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority, and serving on AMP's (Activity Management & Programming) Board. In addition to being very involved on campus, I also hold internships with Amazing Gifts of Hope and the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Ohio.
Meet Rachel. Major: Psychology and Studio ArtHometown: Ashville, Ohio
Favorite Class: My favorite class at Capital University, thus far, would have to be Biopsychology with Dr.Torello. The class was a requirement for my major and before taking the class I was a little nervous from talking to previous students. However, after a few weeks, I had regained confidence. I had participated actively in the lectures and labs to soon realize that I was really enjoying what I was studying. This gave me even more confidence because it reassured on my decision to be a psychology major. By no means was the class a breeze though. I still found that while I enjoyed the class, I still had to work in order to receive the grade I wanted. I think that is why I enjoyed this class so much. My favorite aspect of the class was getting to dissect a sheep brain and to physically see what my entire major study is about. The class challenged my career goals as well because I had enjoyed it so much. It made me want to look into the idea of pursuing this world of psychology versus therapy. Biopsychology was a very challenging yet rewarding class.
What should every college student bring to capital? I think that every student should bring an active attitude to Capital. An active attitude in the classroom, in an organization, as a roommate, on the sports team, etc. Being an involved member of the university and the community is one of the most rewarding experiences you can receive from being a college student. It may also be in your best interest to bring shower shoes, air fresheners, a backpack, laundry detergent, a rug, and fans!
Best food served at Capital and why: My favorite food served at Capital is the cereal bar. Although I also highly enjoy almost everything the main event serves, you will always find me having a bowl of cereal for dessert!
Favorite Main Street hang out: My favorite place to hang out on Main Street is Bexley’s first frozen yogurt shop! Ice cream is one of my favorite things to eat and Spoon me has put a fun spin on it. You are able to get exactly how much you want because it is self-serve and thanks to the topping bar you can also put anything and everything on it. My favorite combination is the Cheesecake yogurt with fresh fruit toppings!
Organizations & Activities: I am a member of the sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha, where I hold the position of vice president of programming and ritual. I am also an orientation leader and a member of Capitals pro-life crusaders team. I am a student worker in the Admissions office as well as a student ambassador.
Meet Will.Major: Leadership and ManagementHometown: Fort Wayne, IN Favorite Class: Marketing with Dr. Schwantes was one of my favorite classes. I enjoyed the subject, but I also loved the class discussion. We had some great ideas for products and marketing plans in class. Who knows, maybe one of us will make millions off of one of those ideas one day. Dr. Schwantes and I also share a love for cars which were the subject of several after class debates. What should every college student bring to capital? A planner or calendar. There can be a lot of stuff to remember sometimes. Also, bring a bike! Bexley is a nice place to ride around and you can get lots of places on a bike. Best food served at Capital and why: I have to choose one? Cheese ravioli pops into my head first. I always go up for seconds and thirds (and fourths) on ravioli day. Favorite Main Street hang out: I'm calling it a tie between Graeter's ice cream and the Bexley Library. One has delicious ice cream and the other has a great (and free) movie and TV section. The Drexel movie theater is high on my list as well. Organizations & Activities: I'm a student ambassador and office worker in the admissions office and an orientation leader for 2012.
