Auxiliary enterprisesstudents can choose to attend a variety of educational, spiritual, cultural, service and social events. Because of Chapman's size, students are not limited to one or two aspects of campus life but are able to engage in a wide array of opportunities. However, Chapman's strongest asset is its student body; Chapman students represent a variety of racial, cultural, and geographic backgrounds, and this diversity greatly enhances the quality of campus life. Chapman University is proud to offer several housing options for students, including five traditional residence halls and three apartment-style residence facilities. We strive to ensure that our residence halls and apartments are comfortable and safe living and learning environments. The Chapman living and learning environment creates an engaging campus climate and provides meaningful experiences that facilitate the following learning outcomes:- a healthy sense of self: students will develop an honest understanding and appreciation of themselves and an ability to make individual choices that promote their health and well-being.- a framework of personal ethics and values: students will develop a framework of consistent ethics and values that guides their daily lives.- an ability to apply critical thought: students will make effective decisions grounded in careful, objective analysis of information,experiences and ideas.- an ability to develop and sustain meaningful relationships: students will develop skills to establish and sustain healthy, meaningful interpersonal relationships.- a value and respect for differences: students will recognize, respect, and value diverse experiences, ideas, backgrounds and identities.- a commitment to citizenship: students will understand their role and responsibilities within local and global communities and commit to becoming an engaged member.- a pursuit of lifelong learning: students will develop an intellectual curiosity and desire for continual learning both within and beyond formal education.
