Rosita Saul decided to come to Chapman because she knew she would have many opportunities available to her and would be encouraged to chase them. As a senior biological science major with a concentration in molecular biology and a holocaust history minor on the pre-medicine track, she has taken full advantage of her college experience.
This summer, 10 local community colleges students had the opportunity to conduct research alongside Chapman faculty in the Keck Center for Science and Engineering. The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Ecological and Environmental Sciences (SURFEES) is an annual sponsored program by the National Science Foundation-Research Experiences for Undergraduate (NSF-REU). Chapman partners with Citrus College, Irvine

A scientist’s fascination comes from the wonder of trying to understand and decipher the vast complexity of the world around us. Frustration creeps in as we discover how challenging that complexity is, and how unsophisticated some of our scientific
As a sophomore at Chapman University, just embarking on my journey into the world of coding, entering a 24-hour long programming competition was the last thing I ever thought I would be doing. Nevertheless, when the opportunity came up at that first meeting of the Association of Computing Machinery to participate in IEEEXtreme 9.0 ,
Alumnus Dor Shoshan and his family have much to celebrate. Dor graduated with honors in May from Chapman University’s Biological Sciences program. He received both the Outstanding Senior Award in Biological Science as well as the Ronald M. Huntington Award for Outstanding Scholarship representing the graduating senior with the most distinguished record of academic scholarship.
Science communication is something we do a great deal of here in Schmid College. Whenever we publish a blog post, help write a press release, or give a public lecture, I am reminded of an excellent PNAS paper entitled “Bringing values and deliberation to science communication” by Thomas Dietz from Michigan State. The basic premise
