    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY: ORANGE COUNTY'S GEM

    I loved how small the school is and how specific the program is. It's exactly what I want to do, and the classes support my goals. At Chapman, I felt like I was going to be at an intellectual balance that both challenged me and made me feel comfortable.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The subjects are exactly what I want to study, at least for my major. I have a wide variety of options, and I can choose what I want even within the major. My classes allow me to become a better writer, a better public relations professional, and a better learner in general. Also, the general education classes have a lot of options and even though there are some subjects I'd rather not take, like science, there are other opportunities. For example, I took a nutrition class to fulfill that requirement.

    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE

    I chose Chapman because of the amazing resources that the private university has to offer. Because it is a small school, the education is personalized and the learning environment is extremely comfortable. I also chose this school because it has one of the riding dance programs in California along with the prestigious business school.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum is pretty reasonable, it?s my first year so it?s mandatory to take a first years foundation course which is completely it of the range of your major. Mine is a social action course called Lied You Learned in School which has changed my entire perspective on life.
