A Champion Has Been Chosen.

Capital Comets Logo

Radiant. Trailblazing. Awe-inspiring.

Over the past several months, our CapFam has been on a mission to choose a new champion to represent the school, our students, athletic teams, and the entire campus community. Out of all the ideas submitted for consideration, one outshined all the rest. We are proud to announce and become the CAPITAL COMETS!

The selection and symbolism of the Comet logo represent many of the values and distinctions of Capital University. As the oldest university in central Ohio, the logo pays homage to the capital city where our campuses reside. The two stars represent our Bexley and downtown locations and the double “C” calls attention to our new identity as the Capital Comets. And like the brilliant comets found in our solar system, the Comet symbol will remind us of the opportunities we have to shine, blaze new trails, discover our potential and move forward in confidence.

Soon we will begin to introduce Comet-branded apparel, athletic uniforms and campus signage. We look forward to this time of excitement, renewed energy and enthusiasm as together we move forward and “In Radiant Splendor Shine”*!
