FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE 2017 read if you are interested in attending: If you are really ambitiously into film and good at it, Chapman is the place for you. Greek life is also growing to be very popular here but not in a good way, the school is so small that the frats are condescending, conceited, and pretentious even though they are so small. The population is like around %70 boys and %30 girls and you constantly notice that. Parties are like 10 girls to 2 boys, parties are very small, exclusive, and cliquey. It is the same small frat parties every weekend with the same group of drama-obsessed and self-absorbed people. As a boy that wants to rush a small frat and have a ton of girls to hook up with this is the place for you, but if you are not interested in the Greek life or really ambitiously talented at film Chapman is likely not the school for you. There are not many outside of those cliques, and even the film students are exclusive because they are SO talented and making so much money working on major feature film sets. It is such a competitive film program that it is difficult to come here with dreams of doing film unless you already have a lot of knowledge and skillset in the field. If you are into hiking, the outdoors, and nature or hippie folk, YOU WILL NOT FIND THAT HERE go elsewhere. Also Orange is small and not fun there is nothing to do, the beach/nature is 20-25 minutes away without traffic, and it is right by dangerous Santa Ana. Sorry Chapman, I have had a good time but not for me and I do not think that it is for everyone.
