Chapman Learning Community
The Chapman Learning Community is an award-winning, high-impact program for first- and second-year students of all majors, including undecided students. Established in 1997, Chapman is designed to teach students how to collaboratively work with local and regional nonprofit agencies to help those in need. The leadership skills Chapman students gain as members of the community have been praised by employers and agencies for over two decades and are often the reason our members are accepted as interns or hired professionally following graduation. We welcome anyone who is motivated to serve others, and to prepare to lead in their respective professional fields, to apply today!
Residential Requirement | First- and second-year students are required to live in the Learning Community. Third- and fourth-year students serve in a leadership role and do not have to live in the community to be a member. All community residents must choose a roommate who is also a member of the community.
About the Community | Chapman students live in a diverse population in Kohl Hall along with other highly ambitious and motivated students who are members of other learning communities. Students work, live and hang out together to ease the transition to college life, while also helping the community.
Kohl Hall | is centrally located and steps away from the Bowen-Thompson Student Union and the Jerome Library. Kohl Hall is a Traditional residence hall with a modern design and houses classrooms and faculty/staff offices. Amenities include an art studio, music room, study area, computer lab, laundry on each floor, and a full community kitchen.
Each community has a set of residence hall rooms specifically designated for them. To sign up for one of these rooms, you must apply, and be accepted into the community, prior to April 25, 2018. To ensure your chance to live in the community, please complete the following steps:
||Complete your housing application|
|Step 2||Apply here and login with your BGSU username and password|
|Step 3||Click on Add a New Community Enrollment Request and choose your desired community and academic year/term|
|Please Note||Students can apply only for two communities on their own. If you want to apply to more than two communities, please contact the additional communities you are interested in so they can apply for you. If you have applied for two and change your mind, go into the system and withdraw yourself from the one(s) you are no longer interested in. This will open up a space for you again.
After you have submitted your request to join a community, you will receive an email from the community director approving your request. When it’s time for you to select your room in the next phase, you will be able to view and select rooms within the designated community space in the community’s residence hall. For example, if you choose to join the Chapman Learning Community, you will select a room in Kohl Hall.
