All of us here in Orange aren’t the only folks reflecting on Chapman University’s history as we prepare for its150th anniversary. In a guest column that appeared in the Daily Democrat in Woodland, the Northern California town to which Chapman traces its roots, columnist Larry Love reminds readers that small beginnings can have big impacts. Visit the Daily Democrat website to read the entire column.

And remember to save March 4 for a special campus anniversary celebration, timed to recall the very hour of Hesperian’s opening day. Learn more about the event in a previous Happenings post.
