What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman is a great school for film/television people and boasts an impressive humanities department as well. The school is not, however, diverse in any way and can feel isolating to students of color, especially in the surrounding area of very conservative Old Towne Orange.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, it is a great school. Sports are nothing too exciting but the greek life is AMAZING. we always joke that we are D3 in sports but D1 in greek life. I highly recommend joining it because there is so much going on. If you don't think it is for you, there are tons of other ways to get involved on campus that make Chapman a great place for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The only reason I'm staying at Chapman is because of the financial aid. I tried to transfer and the other schools wouldn't give me aid, so looks like I'll be here for another 3 years. Chapman really tries, but they just miss the mark in a lot of areas. They overcommit for housing and classes, and most of the time students have trouble getting into their major requirements because the classes are full and the university does nothing about it. The only thing Chapman cares about is Dodge and the business school, so if you're in one of those, you'll be spoiled.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved the teachers. However, I wasn't aware the Psychology program wasn't CACREP accredited until I had three classes left. Unfortunately, this made obtaining a Ph.D. difficult because I had to take 11 extra Masters courses to make up for it or change my platform. Just be sure your getting all the appropriate accreditations and don't just ask the school. They will inform you that they are accredited, which they are but not in any specialization.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman is amazing and has the best location if you are looking for a school that has easy access to everything great in Southern California. Disneyland, the beach, and the mountains all readily accessible. That's amazing if you ask me! Plus it's right in Orange County and not to far from Los Angeles so getting internships is not an issue.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Chapman! I definitely feel at home here. The classes and professors are my favorite part. My professors really care about making sure I succeed in the classroom and will do anything to help me throughout my college career. The campus is beautiful and always clean. The general location is perfect with a lot of shops, restaurants, and stores near by. Long story short, I love my school and I am proud to be a Chapman Panther.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman University has some of the most unique people you will ever get the honor to meet. Not only are the people fantastic, but the facilities (especially Dodge College) are state of the art. A new science building will be available in 2018. Class sizes range from 12 to at most 50 students. Every professor is especially interested in their subject and is always happy to help. We have also been rated one of the most attractive universities in the nation! Chapman University is the place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman University is a very accepting and open-minded campus. While there are many Californian students, there are still a decent amount of individuals from various states and even international. Teachers are always available for help outside of class and the Career Development Center ensures that students have the opportunity to find jobs and network with companies in the area. Chapman students are friendly; they want people to feel included in everything. The chefs in the cafeteria rotate the menu every meal, so the food is fresh and new every day. Location wise, Orange is located between the ocean and the mountains, so you can travel east or west and be sure to find something interesting. In addition, the city is about 45 south from LA, so businesses often come looking for students to fulfill jobs and internships.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chapman has a wealth of knowledge behind it. It's not always easy finding that wealth, however. While there are many inspiring and optimistic professors that help guide you through your time here as a young adult, there are just as many that are here to get a paycheck. As long as you take control of your education, find a peer group that you feel comfortable in, and avoid as much of the cafeteria food as you can, you'll have a good time at Chapman University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I LOVE it!! I'm a freshman in the film school. I've made great friends, my classes are interesting, and there is so much to do both on campus and off -- Disneyland is only 10 minutes away, after all, and this IS SoCal so there are always the beaches!
