More Chappy Hours are added regularly, so check back often!

The Chappy Hour Code:

  • Share your favorite Chapman memory. Was it hanging out in the Attallah Piazza or the old quad with your friends? What about the old caf?
  • It’s a social event (not a fundraising event), so relax and enjoy!
  • Bring some business cards; you never know when you’ll make a connection.
  • Have fun!

We’d love to expand the Chappy Hour program to more regions across the country. It's easy to organize a Chappy Hour and we'll help you promote it, including registration. We'll also send you a Chappy Hour Care Package full of goodies to decorate with and give to attendees.

To learn more about setting up a Chappy Hour in your area, contact Jessica Schulte '11, manager of alumni engagement, at pricej@chapman.edu or (714) 628-2777.
