An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “I see my professors around campus. They not only recognize me but stop to chat and see how I’m doing. Getting to know faculty helps break down the communication barriers outside and inside the classroom.”

    • Samir Kamnani
  • “I spent a whole semester in my marketing class on a small team creating an app to present. We were required to explain how we plan to drive sales and publicity based on advertising.”

    • Kyle Yada
  • “In my intro to cyber security class, our professor set up environments where we learned how to hack and, from there, build defenses against attacks. (We only use our powers for good, of course.)”

    • Rachel Ross ‘21
  • “I loved being a part of Greek Life, Hawaii Club, Intervarsity, Residence Life, and working for Chapman’s Office of Admission. I’ve taken on leadership roles I never thought I’d be brave enough to do!”
