Ask. Think. Lead.

Why choose Capital?
At Capital we invite you to choose your pathway. Take advantage of a world-class liberal arts and professional education that will prepare you for your first internship in college, your first job out of college, and the innovative new career path you’ll choose 20 years from now. The one that doesn’t even exist yet. It’s all possible here.

Study what you love, love what you study
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 change their focus at least once while at Capital. We have more than 60 majors and over 50 minors. 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.

Welcome to the neighborhood
Our location in the Columbus, Ohio, neighborhood of Bexley provides the perfect backdrop for your college experience. The majority of Capital students live in our residence halls and enjoy shops, restaurants, and even a movie theater within a five-minute walk from campus. But look to your left on Main Street and you’ll see the Columbus skyline peeking through the trees, as the 15th-largest city in the country is just 10 minutes away. It’s an extension of our campus for sports, shopping, music, festivals, dining, and culture, as well as internship and job opportunities.

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.

Get your game on
Sure, we’re respected for academic rigor in the classroom, but we’re no slouch on the field either. We have 20 varsity teams competing in the Ohio Athletic Conference NCAA Division III. Our students also participate in a variety of intramural and club sports such as bubble soccer, flag football, sand volleyball, and more.
