Join us for a contactless, physically-distanced, snow-filled experience December 8th through December 10th and receive a winter gift to celebrate the end of 2020. If you live on or near the Chapman campuses, stop by and get your holiday mug filled with goodies. [Please note: mugs only available for pick-up during these days and times]
