As a prospective student, one of the best ways to get a true feeling of a university is to visit and ask questions. This is why Chapman is proud to offer a variety of visiting and learning opportunities to help you make this important decision.
Campus Walking Tours & Information Sessions

These 90-minute campus and residence hall walking tours are specifically designed to give prospective students and their parents an in-depth look at the history, academics, student life and surroundings that make Chapman University a standout in the education world. Following the tours are 60-minute information sessions that provide an in-depth look at the application process, explain what our admission committee looks for during review and a Q&A session with an admission representative.
