What are they saying about the program?

"Columbus was a great city to work in, and the neighborhood surrounding Capital University's campus offers a great variety of food and entertainment options. There is so much to see in Columbus: German Village, attending a rowdy Clippers game, visiting OSU's campus, the Columbus Zoo, the list goes on and on. When you’re not working in the office, you won't have a shortage of things to do."
