4 College Sophomore

Computers: The wifi in the dorms is not good, but the printers are very helpful. Chapman has lots of computers that students can use, but I do not know anyone that does not own a laptop.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of computers on campus; in the library, in individual college buildings--even in study rooms in the dormitories! They all run Windows 7 at the very minimum, and have up-to-date software, meaning they all run fairly well. Even better, there are wifi networks available nearly everywhere on campus, so having your own laptop adds to the already impressive accessibility.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless is the best.

3 College Junior

Computers: could upgrade to mac by now

4 College Freshman

Computers: The school has an abundance of computers and labs both in the library and at Dodge, but they are often taken up by classes or students during finals.

Chapman students are very technologically savvy. Most students have their own laptops, and about 90 percent are MacBooks. However, it isn’t necessary to drag a laptop to class every day because most classes don't require them, plus there are so many available computers on campus. Students have access to more than 135 computers in the Leatherby Libraries, as well as private computer labs in the basement. Dodge College of Film and Media Arts boasts the best technology on campus, with two computer labs and 36 individual editing suites. And, unlike the Leatherby Libraries, the labs in Dodge are open 24/7.

Chapman’s tech support is hit-or-miss. The librarians at the Leatherby Libraries aren’t knowledgeable about computers and often direct students to the tech support hotline if they have a question. On the other hand, Dodge College has experienced and helpful lab assistants who are also graduate students in the film program. Therefore, the lab assistants are extremely familiar with the software and are willing to walk other students through any problems they may encounter.
