Choose Your Champion

Thank you to our CapFam for your participation as we choose a new champion for Capital University! Our collaborative approach has included collecting nominations from hundreds of alumni, students, faculty, staff and community members, and careful consideration from a diverse committee. Finally, it included thousands of votes from our CapFam community across the country. We look forward to unveiling our new nickname later this fall and celebrating Capital University’s bright future!
