Chapman University's American Celebration is an Orange County tradition and one of Southern California’s most highly anticipated events.

The black-tie gala includes a lavish evening of dinner and dancing – one you don’t want to miss.

The extravaganza is produced by Chapman University with vital support from Orange County’s most committed philanthropists and volunteers. In total, American Celebration has raised more than $22 million to provide scholarships to Chapman’s best and most deserving students.

Lana Barendse '15

I cannot put into words how truly grateful I am to have been offered such generous scholarship opportunities at Chapman University. I would not be attending the prestigious private school of my dreams without charitable gifts from thoughtful donors and friends of Chapman. Scholarships have allowed me to fully invest myself in pursuit of my dream of achieving a four-year degree, and I could not be more thankful for that opportunity. I have witnessed amazing selflessness in the form of scholarships that will assist me with my future plans, and I hope one day to reciprocate by giving back to the university that has shaped me as a student, leader and citizen.
