Mike Nemerouf’s Journey From The Army To Chapman University The Math Major discusses his time overseas and how his work as an interrogator informed his decision to come to Chapman.

November 11, 2015 by | Student Focus

If you ran into Mike Nemerouf on campus, you’d likely remember him. He’s tall, a bit older than your standard undergraduate student, and a genuinely warm presence. His positivity and embrace of life are pretty apparent right off the bat, but his story of coming from nine years in the Army into Chapman for math and

Machine Learning & Assistive Technology (MLAT) Lab Opens With Reception After opening in January, Faculty, Staff, Students and Donors join for presentation and celebration

October 1, 2015 by | News

Chapman University’s Machine Learning & Assistive Technology (MLAT) Lab was only just founded in January of 2015, but the work coming out of it is already proving to be not just useful, but important. The goal, ultimately, of the MLAT Lab has been to provide a formal organization for researchers at Chapman who are dedicated to
