Capital University To Change Nickname And Mascot

Jul 14, 2020


Capital University's board of trustees has voted to change the Crusaders nickname and 'Cappy' mascot. 

The board says Monday's vote followed a 15-month study, and says students and faculty at the Columbus school have challenged the nickname and mascot for their connections to The Crusades. The study found a significant portion of students and staffers agree. A schedule for change has yet to be released.
