Chaminade University of Honolulu Reviews

I loved my time at Chaminade University because it is a smaller university with strong religious beliefs. It is mainly a Catholic school but all of the school events welcomed all students of various religions to join and participate. I also loved that the student to professor ratio is fair. There were no more than 25 students to one professor in a class. For me, I was in the Elementary Education division and our classes were really small because we were one of the smaller majors, so there were no more than 13 students in our elementary classes. I also loved that there were always people, professors and business office people, available to help me with any questions I had (financial reasons, registration for classes, how to participate in school events, etc.)

Love being a student at Chaminade University! I'll be a sophomore this coming 2018 Fall semester so I am very excited to go back. Every single staff and/or worker that I have encountered were all friendly and very approachable. I feel so welcome on campus. The professors all seems like they know what they're doing and I can easily approach them when I want to, which is great. There are also amazing events on campus that all the students can enjoy!
Chaminade University of Honolulu has small class, so you can get your questions answered. All faculty and staff is easily accessible, no waiting for an appointment to talk to a professor! Professors all come from unique backgrounds, and the students are there because they want to learn which makes any group projects actually fun.
