    Expensive, but most people receive very good scholarships. The quality of facilities and academics is not lacking for the price tag.

    Take the Interterm Courses! During the Winter Break, Chapman offers free of charge any course at the University and no tuition for the Interterm class if you are a full time student. If you want to get ahead in credits, take one of the courses, and all you do is pay for your books. I took an Economics course last Interterm so that I could take one of my Upper Division courses in the Spring. It was awesome, and I only needed to focus on one class as opposed to 5 at a time. P.S. The dorms stary open during the Interterm so it is inexpensive and convenient, I rate it a 5 out of 5!

    Chapman is VERY expensive, but they offer many scholarships. Also, your money is put towards amazing facilities, opportunities, and faculty. You can get what you want out of your tuition. I suggest you take advantage of the services and opportunities provided by the school, in order to get your money's worth.

    A La Minute has relatively cheap yet delicious ice cream. Bruxie has excellent food for decent prices. UPB hosts events like concerts or trips at a discount rate throughout every semester.
