About the Chimes

The Chimes is entering its 97th year of publication at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, and though our layout may have changed over the years, our passion for delivering the news has not.

Publication began in the fall of 1926, during the tenure of President Otto Mees (1912-1946), as part of larger attempts to transform Capital into a modern liberal arts university. This period also saw the establishment of the Campus Council, the university’s first student government body.

Since our founding, the Chimes has served the campus community by always pursuing and reporting the whole story.

We are entirely student run and free of administrative oversight. This gives our experienced staff of editors, reporters, photographers and designers full discretion in what we publish. 

We also accept opinion submissions of between 500 and 800 words at chimes@capital.edu. If you plan on submitting, please include a brief author bio and headshot.

Print copies are distributed to campus once a month on Thursday mornings. Issues are placed in bins located in the entrances of many campus buildings, including the Student Union, Blackmore Library, Battelle Hall, Renner Hall, and Yochum Hall.

Additional content can be accessed on our website which is updated every weekday.

Readers can also follow us on Facebook, X, and Instagram.

Our office is located in the Convergent Media Center on the first floor.

General questions, tips, and any concerns should be directed to chimes@capital.edu.

If you are looking to join our staff, please contact our Editor-in-Chief, Adrian Suppes, at asuppes@capital.edu.
