What do you consider the best thing about your school? Why?The best part about my school is that I have the opportunity to major in an area study that fits my interests perfectly. I am a digital arts major in the film school at Chapman University, and I get to work in an environment that accurately represents the work force. I am excited for the next few years at Chapman and know that it is the best school for me. I have learned many skills already that I know will benefit me for my future career.Describe your classmates in one sentence.My classmates are people who are constantly collaborating to get work done together as opposed to those people who work just to compete against one another.

What kind of person should attend this school?Definitely someone who wants to spend the next four years of their life in Southern California. Because Chapman isn’t really a sports heavy school, someone that isn’t a huge football head. Chapman is filled with driven students, so a person who is motivated and ready to begin the trek on the right path to their career is meant to spend their college life at Chapman. Finally, someone who is looking to relax and really soak in the essence of college is meant to be at Chapman: cool, calm, and collected.What’s unique about your school compared to other schools you considered?The thing about Chapman is that they surround you with so much information and resources. It’s such a welcoming environment. The unique thing is that a majority of the students here are incredibly involved with a variety of things. With the teachers, the low student to teacher ratio is very comforting because you know that faculty is genuinely concerned with the betterment of every single student. No matter what kind of person you are here, Chapman will give to you what you give to it. If you exude positivity, positivity will rain over you.

What do you wish you had known before you came to this school?At a small private college, the people you live with in your dorm are the people you will continuously see the next 4 years. So forming bonds is very important.What kind of person should attend this school?Someone who loves to know a lot of people. Also someone who wants to be in the greek life.

What do you wish you had known before you came to this school?I wish I had known that most students at Chapman would live on campus or in the neighboring streets. instead I, got an apartment about twenty minutes away in a bordering beach town. Chapman students are very nit and all stay close to campus. If i had know this before, i would have moved to the city of orange with fellow students. It seemed as all students lived with fellow chapman students, and I lived woth roommates that attended school in neighboring cities.What kind of person shouldn’t attend this school?Do not attend Chapman university if you are a person looking for a big university experience. This can be someone who rather not know everyone in their class and would rather solely focus on their studies. Also Chapman university is not a commuter school. Most students live in campus or in the city of Orange. This school is also not an option for medical related studies or engineer studies. Chapman is mostly known for humanties, Business or the arts.
