    Oh. Bummer.

    What a joke. Struppa said, “after two years students mature, grow tired of parties on Thursday night and begin to focus on internships and job hunts”. I would submit to Struppa the case of “Tim the Turkey” that was kidnapped from Orange High School last semester on how mature his drunk Chapman upperclassmen are and the way they treat the community of Orange.

      Legit concern, yes.

      But once again, 1% screws it up for everyone. That whole one bad apple thing that spoils it for the whole damn bunch, school, city, nation, world.

    Chapman University has only changed Orange for the better – it has classed up the old joint for sure. Instead of a lot of dusty old antique stores it now has top-quality restaurants and shops, without all the fast-food riffraff of typical college towns. (Now all we need is a good bookstore in Old Towne…someone??) It seems like Old Towne has forged a good partnership with Chapman and that both sides are benefiting and improving. All I see is Chapman buying old decrepit buildings and houses and fixing them up so they are beautiful and like new. University towns are the best, anyway – you have concerts, lectures, art museums, all sorts of learning opportunities right on your doorstep. Instead of complaining you should participate.

    You can’t argue with success. Hopefully Chapman will continue growing in reputation and size…Orange County deserves a top private university.

    • David Zenger

      Oh, it will keep on growing in size.

    “I was the most successful of the deans in fundraising there.” – New Chapman president, but same huge ego.

      Big minds do big things. What Chapman has become is because of that big thinking. Love Doti! Love Struppa.
