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.
