Chaminade University is a very nice school. It's not too big that you get swallowed up by the masses, but not too small that there's aren't still great people to meet. What I love about the school is the overwhelming Aloha spirit. There are so many different types of people represented here, that most people make an effort to be kind and respectful and downright nice! It's hard to find young people not absorbed in themselves or their phones, but here Chaminade is known to give back. Yes it sits on the bedrock of Marianist(Catholic) values, but even without the religious aspect, there is so much love to share and you can't help but not get inspired by it. I've met incredible professors who really work to help you succeed and do all they can to make your dreams become reality. It's paradise and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Going to Chaminade University has been amazing so far. The diversity of students that attend this university makes the experience much more better. You get to know different ethnicities, other people's story(s), and how they got to where they are now. The thing about Chaminade that is amazing, is that you get that one-on-one opportunity with the professor; when you are struggling with a context, you can ask for help without disrupting the entire lecture. The Campus is such an amazing scenery, beside going up the hill, the campus captures such an landscape environment which displays not only nature, but also the urban parts of Honolulu. The area around Chaminade is perfect, it the right size; you have Subway, L&L, McDonalds, Taste Tea, Teaspresso, and many more places to go an eat. Also, you can catch a bus that goes to the famous hiking trail in Honolulu, Diamond Head. Since Chaminade is such a diverse school, the food that they serve must be diverse as well.
Chaminade University provides a warm and friendly environment with professors and staff who are supportive of and responsive to their students. In terms of academics, my experience has been positive with good professors and curricula that educates and prepares students for their future careers.
