A Capital City! /
Columbus and Bexley
If you live in Ohio—or even if you don’t—you may know what a great city Columbus is. To work in. To play in. To learn in.
Because of so many recreational activities and businesses, Columbus is a great place to attend college. Learn why.
For sports fans, two major league professional teams—the Blue Jackets (hockey) and the Columbus Crew (soccer) and our much-loved AAA baseball team, the Clippers. For foodies, we can offer everything from serious, upscale cuisine (for when your parents are in town to pick up the tab) to pizza and burgers. Yes, we’re the birthplace of Wendy’s and White Castle, but you haven’t lived until you’ve tried the Thurman Burger. And for all you morning people, the New York Post has dubbed us the Breakfast Mecca of the Midwest.
Outdoor enthusiasts, you can revel in a city filled with beautiful parks, rivers and lakes, visit the Franklin Conservatory and Botanical Gardens or the Columbus Park of Roses, or hike or bike the Olentangy Trail.
And did we mention we have the #1 rated zoo and library system in the country?For those who want a job after graduation (that would be everyone except those who plan to go directly to grad school), there are five U.S. Fortune 500 corporations here, we’re in the top 30 on Forbes' Best Places for Business and Careers 2014, and our economy is diverse — education, government, insurance, banking, fashion, defense, aviation, food, logistics, steel, energy, medical research, health care, hospitality, retail and tech. If you haven’t been to Columbus, we hope you’ll check it out. We think you’ll like what you see. So much that you’ll want to join the thousands of Capital alumni who have chosen to stay here after graduation.

Our roots are intertwined with Bexley's. It's a partnership built over more than 100 years, and it continues to grow.
