We invite admitted students to come experience what life is like as a Panther! Attend a class, take a tour and have lunch with a Chapman student! Panther for a Day will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning Monday, February 8 and concluding Wednesday, April 27. This admitted student program is intended for admitted students to participate on their own, rather than with parents, friends or family members. However, we do offer other admitted student experiences inclusive of your parents and family. Please visit the sections below to review those options.

+ - Admitted Student Experience

If you are unable to attend Panther for a Day, or prefer an experience you can enjoy with your family, you may be interested in attending our Admitted Student Experience offered Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. beginning Monday, January 11th and concluding Friday April 29th. This experience will consist of a brief admitted student presentation, a student panel and campus tour specifically designed for admitted students. To attend, register for a Campus Walking Tour & Info Session. Although you will register for our regular campus tour & info session, we will recognize your admitted student status and upon check-in will direct you to our Admitted Student Experience.

+ - Preview Day

Save the date for Saturday April 9, 2016! Admitted students and their families are invited to come experience Chapman on this exciting day. You will have the opportunity to meet our distinguished faculty, experience the campus, take tours and meet other admitted students. Please check back in March 2016 for registration and event details.
