Capitol Named "Military Friendly"  

Birdge signCapitol is pleased to announce that it has recently been named "Military Friendly" by G.I. Jobs magazine for the third consecutive year. The magazine, which surveyed over 8,000 institutions, ranks Capitol in the top 20 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.


Capitol is dedicated to providing active-duty military and veterans with an affordable, accessible, and innovative career-focused education, and a high level of student service. Participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which is part of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, is one such example.

Meet Professor Buck Hoffman  Hoffman

He may never have imagined himself as a teacher, but after Buck Hoffman received his master's degree from Capitol, he knew he wanted to start guiding the next generation of Capitol scholars.


After 16 years of teaching, Hoffman still finds himself in front of a class, watching his students earn their degrees.


"When I started attending Capitol I fell in love with the students and the close-knit community," Hoffman said. "I don't want to overuse the term 'family' when talking about a school, but it really feels like one there. It's been over 20 years since I started there, but every time I go back it's like going home."
