Be as authentic as you can be, both in your application and during your time at Chapman! People want to get to know the real you, and authenticity will make your experiences that much more meaningful!

Favorite Spot on Campus

My favorite spot on campus is the area right outside Starbucks. It’s the perfect place to take a little break, get some studying done or hang out and socialize with friends between classes. It’s also beautiful right around sunset when the sky is changing colors and the string lights turn on.
