This is a university that focuses on personalized education, which means the class sizes are generally small, and there's rampant grade inflation. While this is not the most difficuult university to get into, you can find a great eduucatioon at an even greater price, if you're motivated and have the right major. Their business school is by far their shining star. They also have an up-and-coming dance department and film scchoool (with plans for professionnal quality sound stages and a backlot -- we'll see if it pans out). The other departments producce mostly mediocre liberal arts students, but the faculty oon the whole, is quite good and committed too educcation. The problem is that the Chapman experience is what yoou make of it. You can skate by without too much effort, or you can be diligent and mmeet with professors after class, and do all the work, and you'll wind up with a good education.
