    So who do you want to be? Capital University is full of people who are ready to help you find the answer. With interactive classes (average class size is 25 students) and a low student-to-faculty ratio (12:1 overall), your professors (we have over 400 of them), not TA’s (we have exactly zero!) will tailor your education to your strengths and abilities. Our Student Success Office will help you gain experience and prepare you for life in the real world (internships are plentiful in the city of Columbus). The close friendships you make throughout the Capital community — from your roommate or adviser all the way up to president Bowman — will give you a college experience to remember. And our “best of both”worlds location in Bexley (safe college town with more than 30 restaurants in walking distance!) just minutes from downtown Columbus truly makes Capital unique. Simply put, it’s what college should be.
