Chapman is a small school with lots of friendly familiar faces. Chapman has great enthusiastic professors that are very personable. Chapman is really a school that is all about you.
so you cant stalk me on facebook
if you want a beautiful campus, great small-town community feel just minutes away from some of the greatest los angeles area landmarks (including disneyland!), plus a strong academic community, this is the school for you. it has a fantastic variety of on-campus eateries, a four-story library, and a giant stone fountain in the middle of campus. plus, you can't beat this weather!
