5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in North Morlan, I've known a very communal residence life. I'd say it is the best for socializing and living comfortably. Most of my friends hang out in Morlan Lounge on a daily basis--it has basically become a second home. While it is not the newest building, it has the most breathing space--and has plenty of character!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Morlan is actually the most lenient even though it's the oldest.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: None of the dorms have municipal bathrooms. Triple rooms have their own bathroom, while double rooms are suited with one bathroom shared between two rooms. Most of the people in my hall are really close friends. We hang out in the lounge a lot; do homework, watch movies, chill, etc. Chapman has a ton of recreation in the dorm area. We have a pool, a basketball court, and a sand volleyball court. Henley basement has fooseball, pingpong, and Doy's Place, where you can buy pizza, ice cream, cup of noodles, red bull, and other snacks from 8pm-1am.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: People in your hall are either all best friends or don't talk to each other. It is kind of a drag.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not like it. The social atmosphere seems so fake and people do not seem personable

Dorm life is an adventure every freshman should experience. The dorms are the ultimate social environment that creates long-lasting friendships, and the halls are coed, so girls and guys interact all the time. Students bond with their hallmates, party in the study rooms, and can visit each other whenever they want. Freshmen usually live in a double room, and with only two roommates, the rooms are spacious enough for a couch, TV, and lamps, in addition to the furniture that comes with the room. Some students will be forced to triple, which can get a little crowded, but it’s certainly livable.

Students are spoiled when it comes to the dorms, and the best part about residence life at Chapman is that almost all students have their own private bathroom. In North Morlan, students have a suite-style bathroom, but there are never more than four people sharing it. Once a semester, Chapman provides a cleaning service for the bathrooms, as well as occasional room inspections to ensure that the rooms aren't too dirty, but, for the most part, students are responsible for the cleanliness of their dorm rooms. All the residence halls are located in the same central area, so students who live in different halls often visit one another, and the main campus and the cafeteria are less than a five-minute walk. The dorms are an essential element to a successful freshman year at Chapman because they allow students to connect with the campus and become involved.
