4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public Saftey always got your side.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love all of my professors within Dodge, they have so much experience and are willing to help whenever you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For Dodge (the film school) especially, alumni always have internship opportunities for current students. I know a lot of alumni who are willing to help me find scholarships or internships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are always events held for on-campus residents.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Practically everyone is part of Greek Life but I personally don't find it that appealing. Since I'm part of one of the advertising clubs, that almost feels the same as being part of a fraternity or soroity.

Athletics: Athletics are not a huge part of the Chapman community. We are getting better facilities though.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Chapman, I wish I could work in Admissons just to tell people more about how amazing this school is. The professors, clubs and events are great. I would say the only downside is that if you are not part of a soroity or fraternity, you may feel left out. If you are part of Dodge though, you will feel right at home. I love our film school way more than the other schools within Chapman.

Health & Safety: They should be more on top of the safety. It's safe for now, but just be more aware of the things that go on would be helpful.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! It's great to be around the people!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's not inclusive at all! A lot of my friends are from multiple sororities.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I wish we were good enough to enter in Division 2. That way, athletes would be able to get scholarships for playing and the school spirit would be stronger.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Chapman has fostered a community that I am comfortable in, but just enough for me to grow. I have had so many experiences that I would've never imagined happening to me. The people here are amazing and I love getting to know everyone within my major. Chapman is the best. #pantherforlife

Academics: The best part of Chapman is the small student to teacher ratio. All of my classes were small and it was easy to ask questions and get one-on-one time with the teachers. The teachers made it easy to meet if you didn't get any of the information. I would say the academics/teachers is the only good thing about Chapman. Unless you like prestigious schools and attending a place just for the name and the weight it carries.

Campus Housing: I was in Sandhu and that is the only non Freshman dorm. It was very nice and quiet. The proximity to campus is very nice but I did find the lottery was bad. My roommate and I did not get along and were not compatible in any way. I hear the other dorms are okay but Sandhu is the best.

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.
