I had great experiences at Chapman! I met some smart, cool and fun people and professors while being there! I enjoyed the AmeriCorps program as it paid $9,500 towards my tuition. I enjoyed living at a CU house during my grad school years - great experiences! I slam dunked a teaching credential in 9 months and taught for 5 years, and I earned 2 degrees at CU and now I have my own business as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist for the last 6 years. But geez, the tuition is too much - hopefully there are grants available!

I live very close to the campus and a lot of the homes near me are rentals for Chapman students. Occasional loud parties, but nothing crazy. Students seem to have a great college experience and enjoy the laidback atmosphere Orange has to offer. The campus itself is always clean, safe, welcoming, and is truly apart of the city of Orange.

I had the pleasure of taking this course at Chapman as I try to fulfill my major. I took OLCU501 (organizational leadership) which was very challenging, yet rewarding. The first week was already difficult but the professor was amazing. I had the opportunity to study under Dr. Yossef. She really treated me with respect and was such a great person to learn with. I can't imagine learning under anyone else. Thank you Dr. Yossef for a wonderful experience and for being the best professor.

Great campus, great people, great students, great food! If you're looking at colleges, we'd highly recommend stopping by this gem of Orange County. We've hired alumni as well as interns from Chapman. Even our company's founder graduated from Chapman's prestigious Dodge College.
