Undergrad Profile


THIS IS YOUR World.


Majors and departments
Know what you want your career to be? We’ll help feed your passion. If you’re not sure yet, that’s okay too. Two-thirds of our students changetheir focus at least once while at Capital. We have more than 60 majors. We’ve listed some here, but between the double majors, triple minors, and the undeclared, there are more options than we’ve got room for. Which is a good problem to have. 

This is your world.
This is your time. To think. To do. To blaze your own path. To be you. Maybe you’ll even change the world along the way. Not because you should, but because you can. As you progress from high school student to college student to professional to expert to decision maker, your world will continually change around you. You’ll have amazing aha moments. You’ll find that your life’s about something bigger. Something more.  You’ll want to change everything. For you. For others. For better. At Capital University, you’ll find the support, encouragement, and resources you’ll need to be exactly who you are meant to be.
Today. And tomorrow.

life Happens between classes too
Capital’s campus is your workspace. Your playground. Your social hub. Your creative release. Your midterm cram. Your late-night snack. Your meeting place. Your eating space. Your soapbox. Your stage. Your retreat. Your springboard. Your safety net. Our campus is your home away from home.
Life on the Capital University campus is anything but ordinary. And while academics are a significant part of campus life, we believe time spent outside the classroom is just as valuable. The things students choose to do here will help shape their world not just for these few years but for their lifetime. And with more than 90 student organizations and activities available, there is a world of possibility awaiting you on (and off!) campus. From organized sports to informal clubs, study abroad programs, and environmental, political, and religious groups, the Capital experience can be many things.
