3-3 to Senior Legacy

Through volunteerism and charitable giving, 3-3 to Senior Legacy is an undergraduate volunteer program that works to foster an undergraduate culture of “giving back” to Chapman and the community that will naturally transcend into students’ lives as alumni.  3-3 to Senior Legacy’s mission is to engage students from the moment they say YES to being admitted to Chapman to the moment they cross the stage at Commencement.

3-3 to Senior Legacy asks students to volunteer Three Hours of their time and talent in each of their first Three Years (Freshman, Sophomore and Junior Years) to programs that impact Chapman and the larger Chapman community.  (*Transfer students can participate immediately.)  

In their Senior Year, Seniors are asked to leave their Senior Legacy or treasure and “give back” to Chapman in honor of their Class, to a favorite professor or staff member who made a difference in their Chapman experience, or to benefit future students need-based scholarships, etc.  This long-standing annual tradition helps give future generations of students the opportunity to experience a life-changing Chapman education. All gifts of all sizes make a difference; Senior students might consider giving a gift of $20.20 to commemorate their class year.
