What’s in a nickname? A lot more than you might think. What we choose to call ourselves speaks volumes. It’s not just the identity of our athletics teams and mascot, or what we wear on T-shirts. It’s a way to tell the world who we are – and what’s important to us as CapFam.
That’s why we need your help, CapFam. What will best represent and unify our community going forward? We know the bright minds of our more than 3,000 students, 47,500 alumni around the world, our dedicated faculty and staff, and countless community members can lead the way.
So drop us a note with your ideas and share a quick explanation about why your picks are best for Capital University’s future.
What connects to Capital University's culture and traditions?
What can invoke pride in the campus community?
What will CapFam rally around for decades to come?
All submissions will be reviewed by a diverse committee of students, faculty, staff, alumni, athletes and non-athletes represented across the Bexley, Trinity and Law School campuses. We’ll be accepting nominations through March 1, 2021, so feel free to think through your selections and discuss with your closest friends. After we collect and evaluate ideas, the committee will share the top picks with the public for a vote later this spring.
This project will take place over multiple phases. More information and dates will be shared as we progress through the process.
Submit your ideas through March 1, 2021.
The Mascot Committee will review all of your ideas and narrow it down to the top picks.
We'll share the top picks with the community and put it to a vote!
