Only people that attend Chapman University will understand Chapman’s obsession with extravagant fountains such as this ‘Global Citizen’s Plaza’, which cost them a small amount of about $10 million. In fact, the fountain is gorgeous and I believe they built it because Chapman predicts this plaza to be the center of campus within the next couple decades. Talk about some nice curb appeal! I shot this picture with a Nikkor 10.5mm f2.8 fish-eye lens mounted on a tripod. It was one of the first images shot with my fish-eye.
As I said, Chapman loves fountains. This is the Fahmy Atallah Piazza that cost approximately $3.3 million, most of which is pure donations. This fountain is currently the center of campus and it represents the four pillars of Chapman’s education; intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual. This particular pillar, as you can see, represents the social pillar and each pillar is engraved with a quote from Fahmy’s poetry.
