Chapter History

Capital University, founded in 1830 by the Lutheran Church and is currently affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), is the oldest university in Central Ohio.

Alpha Sigma Phi expansion efforts at Capital University first began when an interest group was formed on April 27, 2009. On Thursday, October 22, 2009, a new colony was established at Capital University in Bexley, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. The Pledge and Colonization Ceremony took place on the Capital campus. More than twenty men participated in the ceremony. The event was attended by undergraduate men from the Epsilon Theta Chapter at Otterbein College and several alumni who live in the Columbus area.

Brent Bowers, Epsilon Chi '10 and Scott Rarick, Capital '10 were elected Student Government President and Vice President thanks to their connections on campus and their use of social media during the 2011-12 academic year.  According to Bowers, this was the closest election in recent history at Capital University mainly due to the use of social media to drive students to the ballot box.
