a. $3,400

b. $8,500

c. $12,400

d. $20,100

 

Answer Key

  1. B. Pete the Panther. Pete often makes appearances at school events such as Homecoming and orientation week.
  2. D. Cardinal and Gray. Yes, according to Chapman’s marketing guidelines and their website, cardinal and gray are the official school colors.
  3. A. Buena Park, California. The school was originally located in Woodland. It moved to San Francisco in the early 1900s, and then moved again to Los Angeles in 1919. The college would live there for about 30 years before moving to the location where it stands today.
  4. D. James Doti. Allen Koenig was president from 1989 – 1991, and G.T. Smith was president before him, from 1977 – 1988. However, James Doti is the one that held the position before Daniele Struppa, from 1991 to 2016.   
  5. C. Braden Residence Hall. Braden Residence Hall was opened in 1959, whereas both South Morlan and the Harris Apartments were opened in 1965, and the Davis Apartments opened in 1974. If the Braden Residence Hall doesn’t sound familiar to you, it’s because it was torn down in 2007 and replaced by Chapman’s most recently built on-campus residence hall, the Sandhu Residence Center (that is, until The K opens in Fall of 2019).
  6. B. $150 million. The purchase was made in large part because the university was planning to implement a new rule requiring sophomores to live in Chapman housing (this rule was indeed implemented for the Class of 2022).
  7. C. The Lawrence and Kristina Dodge College of Film and Media Arts: Sodaro–Pankey Undergraduate School of Media Arts. Yes, even though Chapman themselves often simply refer to it simply as “Dodge College of Film and Media Arts,” that really is the full name.
  8. A. The School of Communication. The School of Communication was founded in 2016, though the Communication major had been around for longer. The Schmid College of Science and Technology was founded in 2008, and the College of Performing Arts and the Argyros School of Business and Economics were founded in 2007 and 1977, respectively.
  9. B. 13. That’s right, there are 13 different sports played at the Division Three level at Chapman, 21 teams overall. Did you know we have both a men’s and women’s golf team?
  10. D. Russian Studies. Chapman doesn’t offer any Russian language courses, so it would make sense that they wouldn’t offer a Russian Studies program, either.
  11. A. $3,400. Yes, tuition at Chapman was only $3,400 a year in the late 1970s. You can learn more in this Prowl article comparing Chapman then versus now.

 

So, how well did you do?

0 – 3 questions right: You’re a fake Chapman student. You likely haven’t been on any tours or bothered to glance at the Chapman website. Heck, you probably don’t even go here.

 

4 – 7 questions right: Your Chapman knowledge is average. You may not know everything, but that’s all right. You’ve got the basics down.

 

8 – 10 questions right: You are extremely knowledgeable about Chapman. Good work! Keep it up, and you may be the next president of the university some day.

 

11 questions right: You are Pete the Panther. Maybe not literally, but the fact that you know this much about Chapman means that you embody what it means to be Pete. Great job!

The Story Behind the Farm in the Orange County Suburbs

Lucy the Llama

If you’ve passed by East Walnut Avenue near Orange High School, something along the side of the road may have caught your eye – a llama, which naturally invites the question: why is there a llama on the street? Prowl reached out to Shannon Deskin, a teacher in the Orange High School Agricultural Department, to answer some questions. Ms. Deskin oversees the farm at Orange High School, which the llama, named Lucy, and several other animals call home.

Why does Orange High School have a farm? What’s the purpose?

Orange High School is part of a national organization called Future Farmers of America (FFA). This agriculture program teaches students valuable skills they can use later in life like leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. We use our outdoor facilities as an extension of our normal classroom where students can get hands-on experience applying what they have learned.

 

Ms. Deskin regularly takes the chickens out from the coop to roam in a more spacious pen. Photo by Julian Ros.

What animals live on the farm? Are any unique or exotic?

We have a few different areas for students to work with animals. Firstly, we have breeding sheep that are bred annually, and students learn about gestation, lambing, health care, et cetera. We also have market animals. Students have the option of raising cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, or small animals. They then take them to the Orange County Fair over the summer to sell them or give them to their sponsors who have graciously taken off the financial burden of raising an animal. We also have a petting zoo that we take to various community events and schools. We have a wide variety of breeds for sheep and goats. We also have a miniature donkey, a llama, and an alpaca. Finally, we have some laying hens which we collect eggs from daily.

 

The petting zoo animals were very welcoming on a recent farm visit. Photo by Julian Ros.

Why a llama, alpaca, and miniature horse as opposed to more traditional farm animals?

Most of our animals are rescued or donated. Also, those animals make our petting zoo unique.

Are the eggs from the hens used in the cafeteria? Where do they go after you’ve harvested them?

We sell our eggs mostly to teachers and students. They are a small fundraiser for our program.

 

How much do you sell the eggs for?

They’re five dollars per dozen. We also encourage carton recycling, so if we get five cartons back, they get a free dozen. We reuse them as much as we can.

 

Many of the petting zoo animals are eager to greet visitors to the farm. Photo by Julian Ros.

Back to the llama and the alpaca, could you provide any facts about them?

Llamas and alpacas are related to camels. Llamas tend to have a courser fiber, are larger, and have a higher chance of spitting. Alpacas tend to be smaller and have a much fine, more valuable fiber. They can spit, but it is not as likely. Our llama is named Lucy and our alpaca is Bruce. Lucy is very mellow for a llama and enjoys petting zoos. Bruce just wants to be with Lucy.

Where do the animals come from?

Most of our petting zoo animals have been rescued from bad situations. They are able to live out their days here while helping educate our community about agriculture.

How are the animals on the farm cared for?

All students in FFA are required to have a Supervised Agriculture Experience Project. Students can choose what area of the farm they would like to work in: plants or animals. The animals eat twice a day, every day. This requires students to be present on weekends and even breaks. It is a lesson in responsibility.

Have the students ever mistreated the animals? Or conversely, have any students ever formed special bonds with the animals?

Our Orange High students are incredibly respectful. They put so much time and care into their animals. I have never had one of our Panthers mistreat an animal. Unfortunately, we have had outside individuals break onto the farm and do some awful things to a turkey that is no longer with us. We have not had an incident since. (Ms. Deskin is referring to when two Chapman students stole and abused Tim the Turkey in 2016).

Is there any breed of animal that seems to be a favorite among the kids?

All the animals are loved. Each student may have their own favorite. I’d say our miniature donkey, Cadbury, is usually a crowd favorite when we attend events.

Orange County Warehouse Sales: Your guide to buying brand-name clothes at bargain prices

DC and Element Warehouse Sale

Chapman students are only minutes away from warehouse sales that lure shoppers with discounts of as much as 80 percent. Hurley, Volcom, DC, Element, and O’Neill all stage warehouse sales nearby offering overstock swimsuits, sweats, skateboards and snow gear nearby at dirt cheap prices. Why? Fashion moves quickly. When the new season of clothes arrives, brands need to purge what they have left. They do this through warehouse sales, a way to sell “old inventory at a discounted price to try and make room for the new season of clothes,” according to Dominique Brienza, a Volcom marketing intern. Below is information on when they happen, how you can find them, and how big a discount you get.

 

Volcom

Volcom's Warehouse Sale

How to get an invite: In order to attend the Volcom warehouse sale, you need a ticket. “Brands will usually advertise the event on their social media accounts,” Brienza says, so wannabe-attendees should look there. Additionally, Volcom employees can give their friends and family an early-access invite to get tickets, so if you know someone who works at Volcom, you have an edge at accessing the best selection. Employees monitor how many people are inside the warehouse at a time, so you may have to wait outside for a bit before entering.

The price: At the last warehouse sale, the price was $12 per pound of clothes.

How often they happen: Volcom has warehouse sales twice a year.

Location: Volcom’s warehouse sales take place at the Volcom Warehouse, which is located at 5 Pasteur, Irvine CA 92681.

Extra Info: The sales don’t have an impact on inventory in stores “because the stuff usually sold is … already available at Volcom stores or retailers,” Brienza explains. It’s simply to clear room for the next round of clothes.

 

DC / Element

How to get an invite: This warehouse sale is a hybrid of two brands partnering up to host a sale together. Additionally, the sale is carried out through a third-party company. Therefore, there are no invites needed. Simply show up at the company’s outlet store and shop.

The price: When entering the warehouse, guests are given a sheet showing the prices of each item category (shown below). They advertise the sale as being up to 80% off.

How often they happen: DC and Element have warehouse deals twice a year, but the third-party company has them approximately once a week. You can find them at www.whsale.com.

Location: This particular sale was located at 1400 Village Way, Santa Ana, CA 92705, as are many others that are done with help from this third-party company.

 

Billabong

How to get an invite: To get an invite, check different websites that list warehouse sales, such as the previously mentioned whsale.com. Additionally, Billabong will occasionally send out emails to frequent customers advertising the sale.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Alternative Retail (@alternativeretail) on

The price: Prices vary based on the category of item. Discounts range up to 70% off.

How often they happen: Billabong’s warehouse sales aren’t on a set schedule.

Location: The next Billabong warehouse sale will be held April 12th to April 15th at 1400 Village Way, Santa Ana, CA 92705.

 

O’Neill

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by O’Neill (@oneill) on

How to get an invite: O’Neill posts their warehouse sales on their website (us.oneill.com). Anyone can attend the sales.

The price: Cost varies, but everything is cheaper than what you’d pay in-store.

How often they happen: Pay attention to the website for announcements. O’Neill’s sales do not occur on a regular schedule. No current sales are planned. The most recent sale happened in November of 2018, and one can reasonably predict that another sale will happen sometime around Summer 2019.

Location: Though it’s impossible to predict where Billabong’s next sale will be, they previously held one at 1400 Village Way, Santa Ana, CA 92705.
