Facilities
  • The Anatomy Laboratory

    The anatomy laboratory is equipped with two human cadavers, a variety of anatomical models, and advanced computer visualization software to assist students in learning vertebrate anatomy.

    The Botany Laboratory

    The botany laboratory contains thousands of specimens and includes a two-story greenhouse used for teaching and research. The general biology lab contains both freshwater and marine aquaria as well as biologic specimens for macro-scale and microscopic analysis.

    The Capital Center Athletic Facility

    The Capital Center is a 126,000-square-foot recreational and athletic complex that includes a 2,100-seat arena, a 3,000-seat Bernlohr Stadium, a 51,000-square-foot multipurpose forum, a 5,000-square-foot fitness center, and a multitude of offices, classrooms and hospitality areas.

    The Cell and Molecular Biology Laboratory

    This lab has of state-of-the-art equipment, including a fluorescent microscope. Typical activities in this lab include, growing cell cultures and studying the effects of environmental factors on cell function and reproduction.

    The Conservatory of Music Facilities

    During 1991 and 1992, the Capital University Conservatory of Music underwent a $6.4 million renovation, providing a state-of-the-art environment for the study of music by Conservatory students, as well as outstanding performance facilities for Central Ohio.

     
    The Conservatory’s on-campus equipment includes a full complement of instruments and computers, an electronic music studio, an electronic piano/computer room, a music education curriculum laboratory and several rooms with practice pipe organs. In fall 2005, the Paul W. and Ella D. Hugus Memorial Pipe organ was dedicated in Mees Hall. The three-manual, 70-rank organ boasts more than 4,000 pipes and was designed and constructed especially for the hall and the requirements of a pipe organ within an academic environment.

    The Greenhouse

    Our two-story greenhouse contains an abundance of different biomes including temperate rain forest, temperate forest, woodland, grassland, and savanna. It even includes aquatic species in a small pond environment. All of this botanical species are used within the biologic courses for teaching and research purposes.

    Geologic and Environmental Science Laboratory

    The geologic and environmental science laboratory contains thousands of rock and mineral specimens and paper and computer generated maps (GIS software) used to examine local and regional features. A reading and study room is maintained with many current biological and scientific journals for student use.

    Battelle Visualization Laboratory

    The Battelle Visualization Laboratory is located in Battelle Hall and operated by the Center for Computational Studies. This cutting-edge facility is devoted to the teaching and learning of Computational Studies, an interdisciplinary field that combines mathematics, computers and science and made possible through the generous gift of Battelle Memorial Institute.

    The Advanced Computational Laboratory

    The Advanced Computational Laboratory is housed in Battelle Hall and managed by the Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics departments.
    Faculty and undergraduates use this state-of-the-art facility to perform different types of complex computations, including:
    Symbolic
    Numeric
    Graphical
    Visualization
    Parallel

    The Language Lab

    Learning a foreign language is an ongoing process. You build oral comprehension and expression by using the language in different settings. You fine-tune your pronunciation by listening and responding to audio tapes, your classmates and your professor. You develop reading and writing skills through structured activities.
    There aren't enough regular classroom hours to do all this and do it well. And that's where Capital's high-tech Language Lab comes in.

    Television Studio

    Capital University's TV facility is equipped to produce video projects in and out of the studio using digital and analog equipment. The in-house TV studio includes a professional news set, telePrompter, and three Panasonic 200 CLE cameras.


    For on-location shoots, there are seven field cameras. Five are Sony 3CCD Mini-DV digital camcorders. Two others are Panasonic 3CCD S-VHS camcorders. A variety of microphones (lavs, handhelds, and wirelesses), two lighting kits, and five single camera-mounted lights (one for each digital camcorder) enable students/staff/faculty to shoot broadcast-quality video and audio.


    The TV facility also houses five Non-Linear editing systems (Avid Xpress Pro, version 4.6 which run on Windows XP Professional), three Linear editing systems (2 Panasonic AG-7650 S-VHS, 1 Panasonic AG-350 S-VHS), two video switchers (EchoLAB 2500; Videonics Digital Video Master), one character generator (PcScribe Chyron), and a 24 input channel audio board (Mackie 2404) and a 12-channel Mackie mic/line mixer.
