Facilities: Chapman is constantly upkeeping their facilities.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is generally pretty expensive so I can not afford it and choose to commute from home.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Chapman. I definitely made the right choice by going here. Everything that I have learned proved to have a real life application and the professors do their best to make sure that everyone understands the information presented.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Chapman is on the rise. Soon, it will be one of the best universities in the nation. For the most part, Chapman does a good job setting students up with internships and job prospects. Everyone at Chapman University genuinely care about each students and their success.

5 College Junior

Majors: As an athletic training major, I would not consider my internship a typical one but it is an internship nonetheless. There is no pay for going to clinical site, and the time commitment is intense but you gain invaluable experience that will help you for the rest of your career. There are also a number of different summer internship opportunities that Chapman has connections to. For example, an athletic training student from Chapman has the oppurtunity to work with the San Francisco 49ers during their offseason. Recently, the New York Giants took a Chapman athletic training student and allowed him to have an internship with them this summer. Chapman athletic training program also has connections with the Los Angeles Clippers.

4 College Junior

Majors: Athletic Training requires a secondary application that is submitted during the student's second semester. The student needs to fill out the application, attach an essay and have an interview with the faculty and staff of the athletic training program. Only 15-20 students are accepted per year. One of the most important criteria for admission is time management skills. In athletic training, the student needs to balance academics, clinical site hours, and their social life without getting burnt out too soon.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Campus dining is pretty nice. Students living on campus receive a meal plan which dictate how many times the student can go eat per week. The cafeteria is a buffet and there are a number of different stations you can go to get food (italian, asian, vegetarian etc.) The cafeteria is awesome at first but after a while, you start to miss home cooked meals.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Chapman's campus is amazing. There are number of random statues and art displayed around campus. There are also fountains that students are allowed to swim in (make sure you go "fountain hopping" at least once). The student gym recently got upgraded and is pretty nice. The dorms are awesome as well.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not much crime happens at Chapman. Most people are very respectful and friendly to each other. Campus safety are always roaming around and whenever something does happen (very rare) a school wide email goes out to alert students to stay safe and be on the look out.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Chapman has some really good athletic teams. However, we are a D3 school so sports really are not that big. There are certain times when athletics are heavily attended. An example of this can be seen during 2013 homecoming football game. The attendance was so large that every single seat was occupied and people needed to go to onto the track along the field in order to see.

5 College Junior

Academics: The professors here are amazing. The small class sizes allow you to form a relationship with the professor and because most professors love what they do, they will help you anyway that they can.

5 College Junior

Academics: I am an Athletic Training major. My academic experience will be very different from everyone else. Not only do Athletic Training majors take some of the hardest classes offered at Chapman, we are also required to do clinical hours. In fact, the Athletic Training Program is so intense that everyone interested needs to go through a secondary application process and only 15-20 applicants are accepted. Clinical hours start our Sophomore year and ends when we graduate. We are required to do a minimum of 200 hours a semester but everybody does at least 300 hours. The upside to all this work is that the Chapman Athletic Training Program is nationally recognized as one of the top programs in the country and due to all of the clinical hours that we do (basically an internship) almost everyone receives a GA position or finds a job upon graduation.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Due to the high number of different organizations, fraternities, and sororities, there are always a number of parties going on during the weekends. For the most part, you can just go to a party but sometimes you will need to be apart of the organization hosting the event, know somebody from the organization or be extremely well like to get in (unless you're a girl. Girls can get in anywhere)

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Due to the fact that class sizes are small, most professors will take attendance. Although it may seem bad, it is actually for the better. You will most likely get points for attending class, you will actually learn stuff and almost get your money's worth.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most students who go to Chapman get along pretty well. Even though Greek life is very strong, guys and girls get along with other fraternities, sororities and non-affiliated students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Finding an off campus house is pretty hard. You really need to start the process early. Some landlords do not want to have Chapman students occupying their houses and more often than not, you will be next door to a family who are not particularly fond of college kids.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone will take you for who you are. I have many friends of different political, social, and religious backgrounds and we all get along great

Chapman is perfect for students who are looking for an intimate college setting and the chance to get involved. It's very easy to hold a leadership position on campus by joining Greek life, Associated Students, or a club. And it seems that the more involved a student is, the better his or her experience will be at Chapman. A typical Chapman student is outgoing, friendly, and ambitious. Most have internships or jobs while going to school, and they have specific career goals in mind. Students care a lot about their grades and want to succeed in their classes, so you’ll find plenty of students studying during the week, but as soon as Thursday rolls around, most head to the bars or fraternity parties.

The nightlife scene at Chapman isn't comparable to bigger universities, mainly because Chapman is a small school, so there tends to be limited party options. Students like to go to fraternity house parties on the weekends or, if they are 21 or older, to the bars in The Circle. Besides partying, there are lots of fun things to do around Chapman—luckily, it is in the perfect location for students. Disneyland, the beach, and Los Angeles are all within driving distance from campus. Students also like to explore the Orange Circle, which is a short walk from the school and offers delicious and well-priced food options. The best thing about Chapman is that it is an up-and-coming school. Every year, its rankings improve, and it becomes more recognized. As a result, Chapman is becoming more competitive, and the quality of education continues to improve. In the end, Chapman graduates will walk away with a well-rounded liberal arts education, many networking contacts, and friendships that will last a lifetime.
