Any question you have about Capital (seriously, anything) I’m here to answer. I’m sending this email to remind you that the national deadline for enrollment is just around the corner — May 1. Don’t forget to submit a deposit. You can submit yours to Capital online here: www.capital.edu/deposits Also, the students on our campus just got involved in something I think is pretty cool (even the university administration got involved!) See it at willyou.capital.edu If you have any questions for me, the best place to reach me is on Facebook. Add me as a friend here: <link> Hope you’re having a great end to high school. Let me know what I can do to make your college choice an easy one. -_________ If you’d rather not get an email from me, I understand. Just reply to this message and type “no thanks” in the subject line. (That way I’ll find it easily.)
