» This Month's Exhibit - The Cheverton Award

The Cheverton Award is the highest undergraduate student honor at Chapman University and is bestowed upon one graduating senior each year. Students are not nominated for the Cheverton Award; they are invited to apply by the faculty based on their outstanding academic record and selected by a vote of the full Chapman faculty. One of the oldest awards presented by Chapman, the Cheverton Award was established in 1929. The original bronze cup awarded to recipients was a gift of the Class of 1929 and remains on exhibit in Argyros Forum on campus, along with its successor, a silver bowl. Upon the trophies are engraved the names of all Cheverton awardees since 1929. Read more about each of this year's finalists for the Cheverton Award below.

I feel nothing but pride in reflecting on my Chapman career, and I am grateful for the community that I have formed. I intend to represent Chapman to the best of my ability in the future, striving to succeed so I can open doors for students like me.

Throughout college, I pushed myself to tackle new challenges, prioritize personal growth, and build strong relationships with others. I made a positive impact on campus and Chapman had a reciprocal positive impact on me: I am undoubtedly a better friend, teammate, leader, and scientist than I was four years ago.

My three years at Chapman have been characterized by the values of love, exploration, and faith. For an international student, who was living and studying across the globe from her family and friends, Chapman felt like a home away from home, a community for which I will always be grateful.

I have made it my ambition to not take the gift of learning for granted.

In being an active member of the distinct, yet overlapping worlds of dance and science, I have developed skills and creativity that remain relevant not only to a career in the arts, but also to medicine and research.

The Argyros Forum Student Union Gallery


The Gallery provides a space to celebrate Chapman student life and encourage critical thought through the work of talented artists. We invite you to view our three exhibit spaces, located in two of the main hallways of the Student Union. While the exhibits change monthly, the gallery strives to affirm various cultural identities, especially those that are underrepresented at Chapman; highlight the impact of involvement in university activities and organizations; and celebrate student achievement and success.
