alumni networking at Chapman's fourth Annual Alumni Entertainment Industry Mixer in April 2016

Chapman's largest networking event

» Alumni Entertainment Industry Mixer

Infused with camaraderie and Panther Pride, the Alumni Entertainment Industry Mixer at five years in has become the event in Los Angeles for Panthers to connect and reconnect with each other. The annual event goes beyond the business card exchange and quick handshake – it allows alumni and students to build real relationships with each other, brainstorm new ideas and seek out potential.

The Annual Alumni Entertainment Industry Mixer is only growing: soaring past 2016's record 300-plus attendees with a room bursting with nearly 500 Panthers, Lionsgate headquarters in Santa Monica was brimming with interdisciplinary Panther talent in 2017. Recently graduated, career-established and hopeful Panthers alike mingled under a relaxed, yet excited aura of potential.

At this mixer, it’s easy to relax in what would normally be a high-power, high-pressure event. Everyone in the room is connected by the common thread of a Chapman experience, and yet, not all are in the same field nor a degree in the same major. It’s not the kind of crowd you’d expect to find at something like this.
