We love coming together in Panther Pride to welcome you back to campus! Join us at these events to reconnect with fellow Chapman grads, and mix and mingle while making new Panther-to-Panther connections.

+ - Chappy Hours

Chappy Hour is a great way to connect with alumni in your area. It is a super casual, fun, Panther Pride-filled happy hour where attendance is free! (Food and beverages are available for purchase.)

Upcoming Chappy Hours

What can I expect at a Chappy Hour?

  • Come reminisce and share your favorite memories with old friends while making new memories and friends!
  • 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.

Want to host a Chappy Hour in your area (anywhere in the world!)?

  • It's easy to organize a Chappy Hour and we'll help you promote it, including registration.
  • We'll send you a Chappy Hour care package full of Chapman swag to decorate with and gift to attendees.
