»High School Workshop FAQ

We have put together a list of FAQs to help make travel arrangements for the at-distance students who are accepted into either of the High School Summer Workshops:

+-Are travel costs included in workshop?

IFREE and Chapman University have generously provided the funds to reimburse travel expenses, including an economy airfare (upon presentation of receipts). Arrangements for discounted economy airfare will need to be made at least 21 days in advance.  If the cost of your flight is more than $250, please let us know in advance of purchasing the ticket. You will only be reimbursed up to $250. Your arrival destination will be John Wayne Airport (SNA).

Please send a copy of your airfare receipt and your flight itinerary to Cyndi Dumas at dumas@chapman.edu for reimbursement - Fax (714) 628-2881; Phone (714) 516-4513. You will receive a reimbursement check upon arrival to the workshop.

+-When do we need to arrive?

Please plan to arrive on the Sunday before the workshop starts (during normal business hours would be ideal!). 

Please arrange for a shuttle service to transport you to and from Chapman University. For students under the age of 18, I would like to again recommend your flights be arranged to arrive at Chapman University during business hours.

+-Where is the workshop held?

The workshop will be held in Wilkinson Hall #116. You can view our campus map here.

+-Where do we check in?

Check-in is at Henley Hall.  A graduate student and member of the ESI intern program will serve as the in-house resident assistant for the high school students. We will have another member of the intern program serve as a back-up.

Office hours are 8 am – 12 pm and 1 p.m. - 5 pm seven days a week. After hours they use a paging system to reach the staff.  If you arrive at the campus outside of these hours, there are instructions posted to page a conference assistant to aid your check-in. Information on how to reach the staff person on duty is posted outside the Summer Conference office building.

+-How is housing handled?

Students will be housed in Chapman University residence halls. Each room has 2 single beds and 1 bathroom (see campus map and area information).  

  • Please bring your own pillow, comforter and linens for an extra long twin. There is an overhead light, but some students prefer to bring a reading lamp. DVD movies are also good to bring to play in your laptop if you would like. 
  • Housekeeping is provided in the public spaces only. Individuals are responsible for their own rooms. Quiet hours in the residence halls are Sun. – Thurs. 10 pm - 8 am and Fri. & Sat. 12 am – 8 am.
  • There is a $50.00 charge for lost room keys.

+-Where can mail be sent?

Mail can be sent as follows:

Name of student, 
Attn: Conference Services
Chapman University
One University Drive
Orange, CA 92866. 



Mail will be delivered to the Conference Services Office, Argyros Forum 302, and can be picked up from 9 am – 5 pm everyday Mon.-Fri.

+-How are meals supplied?

Meals are served in the new Sandhu Residence Center. Mealtimes are typically, breakfast 7:30-8:30 am, Lunch 12-1 pm and dinner 5-6 pm. Restaurant Services provide an "All You Care to Eat" menu with two entrees, including vegetarian options, a fruit and salad bar, desserts and beverages. The group will be issued a meal card each week. Meals are served in a beautiful dining room overlooking the campus where guests can dine in or outside on the patio.

+-When is final checkout?

Please plan to checkout on Saturday after the last day of your workshop by noon.

+-Who do we call in case of an emergency?

Public Safety Office (714) 997-6763 is the emergency number for parents. The Public Safety Office is open 24 hours per day and can handle emergencies. Additionally, page a student summer conference staff for assistance.
