Overview

Great Attractions in Orange County and Nearby Cities Offer Fun Activities for Chapman Students

Chapman University is located in beautiful Southern California's Orange County, midway between sunny San Diego and vibrant Los Angeles. That perfect location offers plenty to do for those who love the great outdoors or simply like getting out in the world.

"The happiest place on earth" -- Disneyland -- is just a short drive from campus in nearby Anaheim, and so are parks and arenas for professional baseball teams (the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) and hockey teams (the Anaheim Ducks), as well as museums and performing arts venues. For those who love the outdoors, miles of world-class beaches are just minutes away, while snow-capped mountains offer winter skiing and summer hiking.

Less than 30 miles/50 kilometers north of campus is Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world. L.A. boasts some of the most important business centers, trend-setting fashion hubs, and dynamic live music venues anywhere. It's also home to Hollywood, dozens of museums (including the Getty), and even more sports teams and performing arts venues.

Both Orange County and Los Angeles are in California, one of the most exciting states in America. Located on the West Coast, California boasts a diverse population, temperate weather and rich landscapes of deserts, mountains, forests, and beaches. Having come from nearly every country all over the world, more than 30 million people now call California their home.

Chapman University Provides a Comprehensive Education with Strong Professional Preparation

Chapman University provides its undergraduate students with a comprehensive education that focuses on developing students into thoughtful and engaged citizens. Educational standards help students explore realms ranging from intellectual achievement to spiritual understanding and satisfaction. Chapman stresses an interactive relationship among its faculty, researchers, and students that fosters a continuous and collaborative learning experience on campus and beyond, extending into the professional and personal world of participants. The university is committed to creating a customized education for all who attend. Chapman liberal arts programs include those in social science, education, media arts, humanities, science, business, and many other fields.

The other important focal point at Chapman University is pre-professional career preparation for undergraduate students. Chapman promotes the integration of its students into the professional world by creating a learning environment populated by business leaders, professors, and peers so students can adjust to, understand, and, ultimately, flourish within their chosen fields in the real world. The university provides many opportunities for students to find internships outside the classroom, which greatly increases chances for securing a job, as well as provides credit toward their degree.

Chapman University believes it is important to integrate its undergraduate programs with the world at large, which students experience on campus and beyond, with pre-professional career preparation. It takes a well-rounded, sensitive, thoughtful, and mature student to truly succeed in the professional realm of industry, a goal that is supported by all of the different people that make up the Chapman community.

Chapman University International Students Find Support Among Student Groups and International Student Services

At Chapman University, a diverse student body from every corner of the earth is engaged in a supportive educational environment that includes comprehensive undergraduate programs and individual student groups. International student organizations, clubs, teams, and committees help to strengthen the focus and morale of the many participants who are involved throughout the school year, as well as raise awareness among other students.

Some of the international student groups at Chapman include the Arabic Club, Chinese Club, French Club, German Club, Asian Pacific Student Association, Japanese Club, International Student Organization, and the Turkish-American Club.

The many international applicants to Chapman University's undergraduate programs have to take the Test of English for Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System, in addition to the SAT. Prospective students must also fill out the Common Application and Chapman supplement.

In order to secure financial aid for their education, international applicants must complete a Chapman financial certification document. Those international students who transfer must also take the previously mentioned tests and fill out applications, as well as provide English-translated high school and college transcripts.

Chapman University International Student Services, or ISS, helps students to join community groups, adjust to their new surroundings and lifestyle, and adapt to the academic world. Additionally, ISS organizes several special functions throughout the year, including orientations. The ISS also helps to open communication with government agencies and expedite immigration issues to the benefit of the students.
