Homecoming Weekend 2021
Thursday, October 28 - Saturday, October 30

Homecoming at Capital is a special time for our community, especially alumni, who renew their bonds by reconnecting with each other and by meeting our current students. Unfortunately, out of an abundance of caution to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the University has decided to cancel all indoor events scheduled during Homecoming 2021. These updates are noted below and we thank you for your understanding.

All outdoor events, including the October 30th tailgate and football game against Otterbein will be held as scheduled, weather permitting.

Please contact the Alumni Engagement office at 614-236-6701 if you have any additional questions.

Gloria Dei Worship Center
Join Pastor Drew Tucker and the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life at Capital University for their weekly Candlelight Worship Service. Come expecting band-led music and a more informal setting with lots of singing, scripture, and conversations in a Christ-centered, student-led service that feels more nondenominational and includes Christians of all stripes.
