Our annual Open House is an exciting day of events for prospective students and their families. Come experience our campus and join us for academic presentations, campus and residence hall tours as well as special interest and departmental demonstrations. 


Chapman University is what a college experience should be. A place to make your mark, to be seen and heard, and to experience something new every day with friends and professors by your side. With cutting-edge academics, a vibrant student life, hands-on internships, and a community that is supportive, creative and fun, Chapman knows how to make your college experience unforgettable. And it doesn’t hurt that we're located in sunny Southern California on a beautiful historic campus.
