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.

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 Experience: Amazing and dedicated professors who teach lots of courses. I've taken a lot of classes in different subjects and I'm constantly amazed by how intelligent and inspiring professors are.

Health & Safety: Campus sexual assault is a huge problem that is rarely addressed by administrations and when it is, it's insufficient, inadequate, and not enough. There needs to be radical changes in this issue.

Campus Housing: Dorms are pretty standard. Few complaints. It's just a very small space for a lot of people. But it makes it easier to facilitate social relationships and it's proximity to campus is great. Parking is limited.

Panther village is the worst. Too far away from campus and almost no parking.

Greek Life: Most frats are a center for racism, bigotry, and rape culture. Most sororities are fake and package hyper-femininity as the only acceptable form of gender expression. They're expensive and time-consuming, and definitely not accessible for all different kinds of students.

I've never had the experience of being in either, so my opinion are swayed by my own personal views of seeing it as an outsider.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Chapman has a great faculty and teachers, most are passionate, caring, and motivating individuals who genuinely want to see their students succeed in their careers as well as during their time at Chapman. There are a lot of opportunities for students to discover their interests through clubs, events, socials, and study abroad opportunities. I have learned and grown a lot from my time here. However, social justice work is incredibly difficult. Clubs are required to do immense amounts of paperwork and student activism is usually silenced, minimized, and criticized. The student population is mostly apathetic, as a high percentage experience enormous amounts of privilege. The administration is very unhelpful and favors money and growth over their student's needs and well-being. I have found my community within this school but that was not facilitated at all by Chapman.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While I have not yet started my endeavors at Chapman University, each time I have visited the campus I am more assured that I have made the right choice in choosing a school. The students are more than happy to provide their help and advice wherever needed, and in just a few minutes of listening to professors and counselors speak at an academic advising session, I could already tell how dedicated the faculty is to helping the students and connecting with them on a personal level. Going in to college as an undeclared major is terrifying...I have spent copious amounts of time stressing over what classes to take and anxiously hoping that I will be able to declare a major one day that I am passionate about. But knowing that Chapman University is known for its incredible arts and business programs, I am confident that my time at this school will guide me to find a career path in which I can incorporate both my artistic passion and drive for success.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't trade my experience at Chapman for anything. The accounting department is amazing and I am 95% assured a job before graduation. The Greek community is all a close knit group and the staff are second to none. They get to know all their students on a personal, more mentor-like level.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: A degree from Chapman definitely holds merit. It also opens up connections to the alumni which are very well off as the school has a plethora of funding from donors and alumni. The school is growing rapidly and is consistently ranked in the top schools of America both overall, and in business and digital arts.

Health & Safety: Chapman is very active in this area and takes all precautions and offers trainings and classes to fraternities, sororities, and the general campus. Title IX is very important and talk about a great deal.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Housing was fun as a freshman because it was a nice way to get to know everyone and introduce you to some new friends. I got out of there as soon as freshman year ended though. They are pretty strict and I got in trouble for incidents I did not even partake in. The dorms are pretty small, but decently new. Living off campus is aa much more popular option at Chapman.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I love my Greek community at Chapman. The school is small enough though to where all Greek life knows each other and it makes for a very easy way to meet new people and make some amazing friends. We have a very strict none hazing policy at Chapman which is nice. I still remember pledging in the Spring of my freshman year, it is still to this day one of the greatest semesters of my life and I have made such close bonds with all my brothers.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We only have a few intramurals, and our football team, while being good, is Division 3. But Chapman did take the national championship title this year with our Lacrosse team!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: At first I picked Chapman because they offered the most aid and my mom wanted me to attend. After the first few months though, I fell in love with the school and now entering my Senior year I would change nothing. The academics, especially business/accounting, are outstanding, the Greek life is very involved with the school and the community, and the staff cares about each student as a person with goals and aspirations. The community at Chapman is very tightknit and I love being a part of it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Having just completed my first year at Chapman University, I am not personally familiar with the job/internship prospects, I have many friends who are upperclassman friends who have found both jobs and internships through the connections and support that Chapman offers.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I know nothing about Greek Life but it's undertaking of community efforts.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Clean and diverse facilities. The sports pool is the largest campus pool I've seen. The Chapman football feild is lush green and beautifully manicured. Chapman's art's halls are modern, beautifully constructed and professional.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Chapman is an enlightening educational experience for all walks of life. The classrooms are intimate and engaging. There's always a challenge to be met. The faculty and staff are multicultural movers and shakers driven to help the student body think critically, creatively, and globally.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have only been on campus during one incident. I was studying in my dorm when I received a notification warning all Chapman students that there was a possible gunman on campus. No one was hurt once the incident was resolved. Public safety on campus is very good at keeping students notified and aware.

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.
