What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman University is a wonderful school where everyone is extremely supportive, friendly, and encouraging. They care about every single one of their students and will even give them more individualized care when needed as long as you speak up. Great opportunities and a wonderful environment. If I had to choose again, I would choose Chapman.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I tell my friends that I can't whine too much about my college experience because my high school experience was so great. Which is to say, I merely bore my time at Chapman. I chose that school because they offered me the best scholarship out of the three places I'd applied (a total rookie mistake. apply to tons of schools, folks!). I lived at home to save money. I initially went for their creative writing program, but, as many students do, I switched majors. As a sociology student, someone deeply concerned about the unfolding war in Iraq (this was 2004), and generally as a lower-middle class leftist kid, Chapman was a horrible place to be. Not for their professors, who were generally excellent (Paul Apodaca in particular was a transformative figure for me). If you go to Chapman to keep your head down, study and get a degree, then, well, more power to you. But the culture at Chapman during my time there (2003-2007) was the scrum of entitled, wealthy white kids, folks who attended the right-wing law school in this quiet ring-wing town so they could join Daddy's Law Firm and dump on the rest of us poors in the meantime. Jim Doti, the president at the time, seemed more interested in chumming up with Governor Schwarzenegger (which he did, constantly) than with addressing student concerns of flagrant on-campus racism or the construction of needless facilities. I know they have a great law school, and I know they have a great film school, and I wish I knew in 2003 that I would one day be a filmmaker because that would have helped a lot. But my tiny island of sociology students and professors were the only refuge I found from the godawful broeyness and Orange County entitlement there. Then, I did my student thesis on student loan debt, and found that my whole generation was getting screwed and that Education As Profit Opportunity was flat-out wrong. My exclusive private school was a perfect example of the worst of it. Go to UCI instead.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman University provides many resources for their students while attending college, and for those who graduate. At the career center we can get help writing resumes, cover letters, and they even offer to take professional pictures for our Linkedin. The classes challenge you in a good way to be outstanding in the career in our choice. The one thing Chapman should work on is diversity. Chapman claims they are very diverse, and while there are students of different backgrounds and ethnicities, it's still a predominantly while school and you sense that as a student going to school everyday. Other than that however, most of the students who attend are very nice and welcoming. About half of the student body are involved in Greek Life but there's no hazing and everyone gets along for the most part.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman is a great school. The environment, the professors and the location of this school is amazing. The academics are also very top notch. However, there are some things that are absolutely terrible about this school. The food here is absolute garbage and there are no GOOD places to eat on campus other than Starbucks, so get ready to spend money on fast food and cup noodles. Also, Chapman tries to promote diversity, although 80% of this school is just white. As an asian student, this is extremely dissapointing. After your freshman year, you are forced to live in an apartment, and they fill up so fast that most people are just forced to live in the worst apartments that Chapman offers, which are The Harris apartments and Panther Village. If these three things do not apply to you, then come to this school. If not, stay far away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The administration office and its officers are a bit inaccessible and I saw many frustrated students in there. Very undiverse, school especially since neighboring a highschool with a majority of minorities. This school is WAY too expensive. Beautiful camps though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman University is a wonderful place to be. The campus is rather small so it really feels like a community and everyone I've met is really friendly. There isn't drama and the students are pretty chill and easygoing. The largest class size probably 100 students which is not bad at all compared to other universities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it. All throughout my college application process it was my top choice, and that hasn't changed since I've been here. I have made great friends, the classes are really interesting, the food is very good, there are plenty of fun activities, the campus is gorgeous, there's an adorable town within walking distance with tons of great food and shops, it's amazing. I love Chapman and would recommend it to anyone applying for college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman offers a more intimate educational experience with smaller class sizes; and offers many resources for students including career workshops, clubs and activities, and volunteer opportunities. The college has recently put more and more effort into increasing diversity of their student population, although there is still plenty of improvement to be made in this area. I had graduate student professors for two out of four of my classes during my first year, and their lack of teaching experience considerably affected my academic performance; however the school's more experienced professors are outstanding and do a fantastic job of being available and connecting with students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really have liked Chapman University so far. I think the class sizes are small but not too small, the teachers are usually really nice and they always have office hours if you need help, and there are many clubs and organizations to join. It took me a while to find my place but once I did I was really with Chapman University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have had a great two years so far! The negatives include the undeclared program, which is where I started my Freshman year. They offer little help in finding a major and all undeclared students are housed together, which didn't help. However, our graphic design program is amazing!!
