This year, we’re bringing Chapman Family Homecoming to you! Join us October 5-10 for a week of virtual events where you can reconnect with your fellow Panthers, show your support for current students and celebrate everything that makes Chapman feel like home. As is tradition, the week will still have an exciting slate of events that you can find in the Chapman Homecoming Hub
