3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are quite a few varsity and intramural sports offered at Chapman, but it isn't a huge part of the campus. Some people go to games, but they're not extremely popular.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The football team gets everything for free, which is good for them but the cheerleaders do not get any school support. The school spirit could be better.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They aren't very big on campus

2 College Freshman

Athletics: I've never been to a game of anything ever here.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I know several people on various sports teams, but I don't really hear much about games. If sports are your thing, there are definitely options for you, but they're not a big part of campus life.

Chapman is not a sports-oriented school. Although there are some good teams, there is a lack of school spirit and student support for sports. The only sporting event that a large number of students attend is the homecoming game, and even that is lacking in spirit. Chapman is trying to increase spirit by having a pep rally before the game, but it still hasn't succeeded in getting students excited about sports. Although homecoming is the biggest game of the year, football is not the best team at Chapman. Lacrosse, water polo, and baseball have the best reputation and are the most talented teams. 

Chapman students are athletic and like to exercise, so many join intramural sports, such as ultimate Frisbee, tennis, or soccer. If students want to participate in sports without a big time commitment, they can join a handful of athletic clubs, like daily running group. Chapman's state-of-the-art athletic facilities are available to all students. Chapman student like to look good, so they usually spend as couple hours a week taking advantage of the fully equipped gym, track, and Olympic-sized pool.

School Spirit
In general, Chapman students don't have Panther pride. Unless students personally know an athlete playing, they won't attend a game. The only game a majority of students will attend is homecoming with their family, which is held during Parents' Weekend.
Getting Tickets
Students can either call to reserve tickets or purchase them the day of the game. Students with a Chapman ID can get tickets at a discounted price.
Best Place to Take a Walk
Most students walk along the beach in Huntington, Newport, or Laguna. Some popular hiking trails include the Live Oak Trail in Lake Forest and Moro Ridge Loop in Irvine.
