Originally organized in 1861, Chapman University has steadily evolved from a small traditional church-related liberal arts school, into a vibrant midsize and nationally recognized university with renowned programs in areas such as film and television production, business and economics, theatre, dance, music, and teacher education.
Set in suburban and historic "Old Towne Orange", California, Chapman's beautiful tree-lined campus features a blending of historic and contemporary structures, tranquil gardens, world-class recreational facilities, and "smart" classrooms. With wireless technology throughout the campus, Chapman was recently named one of the top 50 "Best Wired" campuses by Yahoo!
Chapman's academic preparation and wide breadth of excellence is evidenced by the University's accomplished alumni, who include Loretta Sanchez ('88), member of Congress; David Bonior ('85), member of Congress and former house minority whip; Jose Gomez ('75) member of the Panamanian National Assembly; television and film producers John Copeland ('73), Jon Garcia ('90) and John David Currey ('98); cinematographer Gene Jackson ('70); television sports analyst, Steve Lavin ('88); Tony Award nominee and Broadway star of Showboat, Michel Bell ('68); Indy car racing star, Jacques Lazier ('93); former major league baseball stars Tim Flannery ('80), Marty Castillo ('80), Gary Lucas ('76) and Randy Jones ('72); and George L. Argyros ('65), philanthropist and former U.S. Ambassador to Spain.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
