3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've been to the campus multiple times and start within the next week. Not sure if it's the perfect fit, but people seem friendly most of the time.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel fairly save on campus. At night I prefer not to walk alone. I like how we do have Public Saftey and can call them if we'd like to be escorted back to our dorm or car, but sometimes they take a very long time to come.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: After finishing my first year, I have had amazing professors. I love that they all care and genuinely want to help. I also love that on average my class sizes are about 25 people. There are many classes I'm hoping to take in the future.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The network definitely changes for the program one is involved in. A student in the Agyros School of Business or Dodge College would have more of a network than I think someone in Crean College.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the triple rooms are really only for two people. My school isn't allowed to build over for floors so I understand their need for more dorms and space for incoming students/residents.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know too much about it to be frank.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student gym facility should definitely be expanded. At crowded times in out gym, I just come back at a later time since all the machines and floor space are being used. It would also be great if we had more than one basketball court.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I didn't get too involved in the social aspect of college so far. Academically, I have great professors who are always willing to help give me insight for coursework and personal life.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've felt completely comfortable walking around campus at all times, even in the dead of night. The school's Public Safety department is always an active presence, and is very involved in keeping students safe.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms leave much to be desired- cramming three students each into a glorified broom closet. There is absolutely no privacy, and the roommate selection system simply doesn't work. It seems that at least 1/4 of my hall, myself included, were very unhappy with their roommates. The only saving grace is that each room has a private bathroom, otherwise this would be a complete disaster.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is everywhere at Chapman, and something like 30-40% of students pledge. The professional fraternities and honor societies have amazing reputations and are generally considered to be a good option. The social fraternities, however, are a nightmare. They are mostly comprised of the entitled douchebags who are just there on their parent's dime to party. They have almost highhandedly made Orange residents hate Chapman for their reckless behavior.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The students at this school love to be involved with everything going on.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is great and is in a great community. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: If you are trying to end up living in Southern California when you graduate, Chapman University is your spot. The internships offered are incredible and the alumni in the area is out of this world. A great network is formed as soon as you decide to attend Chapman!

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Though the parties are not anything crazy due to the fact that Chapman has no houses for fraternities or sororities, but if Chapman students are passionate about anything, they are passionate about the Greek life. If you do not join a Greek organization, you should definitely join some on campus clubs because about 90% of students are involved in something.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Though the "party scene" is not too prominent at Chapman University and the athletics are not crazy, the school was still about to make an extremely positive and driven community. Every time I walk around campus, I know most of the people that I see and if I do not know them, I approach them and meet them. That is the beautiful thing about Chapman, everyone is open to meeting everyone because the school is so small and the loving environment and mentality that they have created among all students and faculty.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Chapman is a very reputable university. Many students are met with success post graduation due to their education and their connections that were established during their time spent at Chapman.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our "nurses" office is great. The staff are kind and efficient. Provided me with great care.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It depends what dorm you are placed in. On campus housing is limited...

Athletics: Our teams are division three but that doesn't mean they are bad. One factor that Chapman lacks is it's "hype" for our school's athletic teams.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm enjoying my time at Chapman University. The professors are eager to teach and most- if not all- students are engaged and ready to learn. It is quite the close and tight-nit community that allows students to strive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Coming to Chapman was a really good decision. The professors are all easy to get in contact with and have student friendly office hours available, especially before a big exam. There are a variety of classes, and I never worry about getting a lower division class because Chapman always opens up enough lectures so almost everyone can enroll. The class sizes are small, the biggest lecture being about 80 students. This type of learning environment is good for my learning habits and is conducive to me learning and understanding the concepts well and performing well on exams.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni network is definitely strong after graduating Chapman. The school has a rich history and good connections especially in the Orange County area. The career center is helpful in looking for internships and job opportunities. This school makes majoring in multiple areas of study realistic and achievable, which only increases job prospects post graduation.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
