4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone is very helpful and topics are of good interest. I enjoy the education and variety of knowledge I receive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lots of opportunity and choices. Many alumni get involved in placing graduates to future jobs. Recruiting on campus is quite efficient too.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Good safety features, and lots of precautions are taken for the students safety.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You need to try it the freshman year, after that it's time to get off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Fun to be a part of the Greek system, but takes time from school work at times. Good way to meet people.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Very good equipment and great coaches. Very easy to try different sports for the 1st time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone seems to be working towards furthering your excitement for learning and maturing in your educational walk.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus safety is very important and utilized on campus. The campus police are very active in the Chapman community, and I see them daily working hard to keep this campus safe and secure.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Chapman University has the best professors. I love having genuine relationships with each of my professors. It is refreshing, and the classes are always extremely engaging.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school provides many opportunities for on campus jobs and internships. One of the most effective is the career fair they put on at the beginning of the school year. This event gives students the ability to see the opportunities that are at their fingertips.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I had to choose a college to attend all over again, I would still choose to go to Chapman because the small class sizes truly help you learn more effectively. As a commuter, it has been difficult to make real friends, but I have genuine relationships with the people I have class with and the professors that teach the courses. For this reason, Chapman has always been the best fit for me, and I would choose it again if I had to do it all over.

Overall Experience: As I said in a previous answer, I semi-despised Chapman at first, but ended up growing into it. Now, as a senior, I'm quite glad I came here, met some great friends and colleagues, and had some great experiences. If I had to do it over, I might seriously reconsider, but who knows... fate is fate! I personally think some of my negativity is directly correlated with my program (Biology), which was severely under-funded during my years here due to the new science building that will be up by 2018. I really do think Chapman will grow to be a better university than it already is in the future!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's not like getting a degree from Harvard or Stanford, and it's not like you'll have the career connections like USC graduates, but its still a degree from a damn fine university.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Personally, I have never felt unsafe ON campus at all. Just surrounding campus, however, is another issue. Although Old Town Orange is a beautiful and well-kept area, it maintained a surprising rate of petty theft, assault, and even serious robbery during my four years here. I had my computer stolen not once but TWICE during my sophomore year from my locked house just three blocks from campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I loved my dorm and my freshman roommates! Four years later we are still great friends. The dorms are totally reasonable, SUPER close to campus, and are a great way to get to know people your first and second years of school.

Greek Life: Greek life has a big presence at Chapman, no doubt. I myself never joined and to be honest I'm glad I didn't. Here, it seems like an expensive and over-glorified drinking club.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Nestled in cozy Old Town Orange, Chapman's location in the heart of Orange County makes it somewhat irresistible. Beyond the sunshine, attractive and stylish students, and beautiful campus, however, it's really just okay. Academics are good, but somewhat limited by the institution's small size. Sports aren't bad, but not great either. Some students absolutely adore it here, others are blah about it. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a great time here, though; I've had some incredible experiences with some incredible people. But then again, that can be found at almost any college. The excellent financial aid kept me coming back, but I often wonder what things would be like if I had gone to Cal or Davis instead.

Athletics: Sports at Chapman exist, but they are not an integral part of university life. Some, like water polo and lacrosse, are quite great, but overall, Chapman Athletics are nowhere near comparable to those of some big-name colleges.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: we always get notified after there has been a report of a sexual assault on or near campus. We also get notified about ways to potentially prevent sexual assault

4 College Freshman

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.
