Chapman University Reviews
Review Chapman University
There are a lot of great things about Chapman University. There are a lot of activities to do around campus and everyone is really kind. The classes are small and even the professors in larger classes really take it to an individual level and enjoy questions to make sure everyone is on the same page. The dorms are really great, you don't have to worry about walking down the hall to use the bathroom! The weather is also great, and even when it's getting a little too hot, you can always turn your air conditioning on. Some things I would change about Chapman is their food options because they're not very healthy.
I am currently a first-year undergrad student and there isn't a day that goes by that I am not blown away by this school. Sure, it's on the smaller side but I meet someone new everyday. The layout is perfect and I never have to run to class since everything is basically together. I really enjoy the sense of community that the school provides, especially since I am an out of state student. The only thing that I would change/improve would be the student parking situation, which says a lot! This place is a SoCal gem and I believe it is one of the most up and coming schools out there.
Chapman University is an awesome place to go to for college. They have such a welcoming community as well as a supportive staff. The professors are always working with students and are there to help you with the material. Chapman offers great tutoring services by having personal tutors as well as supplemental instructors for the majority of the science and math classes. Supplemental instructors provide summary lectures, worksheets and answer any questions. Chapman is also known for their small class sizes, which makes them unique and enhances our learning environment. Chapman's campus is the most beautiful campus I have toured and the location makes it even better. I would recommend Chapman to anyone I know.
