Every summer, Chapman families, nationwide, open their homes to host Welcome Receptions for incoming freshman and transfer students and their families. These receptions connect new students to their future classmates and link parents to the Chapman Family!

Receptions take place from June through mid-August. Click on a dropdown below to choose your event and register.

For all new families, your student will need to register you for this event. They will be asked to supply the email address used when they applied to Chapman. Once on the site, they can select the reception of their choice.

Sophomore, junior, senior students, parents /Alumni and parents of Alumni, are also invited to attend a summer welcome reception this year! Your experience as a Chapman Family member will be invaluable for new families. Click on All other guests below to register.

Please check back often, as events may be added and or changed. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
