Chapman University, based in Orange, Calif., has expanded its health science programs to a new campus in Irvine, Calif., the Harry and Diane Rinker Health Science Campus. The school attributes this growth to the increasing popularity of its science programs and the school’s first expansion outside of the main Orange campus.
The new campus will be home to Orange County’s first school of pharmacy (slated to open in the fall of 2015), along with Chapman’s graduate degrees including physical therapy doctorate programs, physician assistant masters programs and more. The state-of-the-art 166,413-square-foot campus features shared lecture and lab spaces, student lounge, 3D televisions that are tablet compatible, faculty offices and more. The campus was made possible by a $15 million donation from Harry and Diane Rinker.
