Throughout my experience at Chaminade University, I have enjoyed the small classes. This allows, the student to have one-on-one attention with professors about important projects or new class topics. In additions, the professors are fair and organized throughout the entire course to ensure the best educational needs. What s most important, is how knowledgeable each professor is in their department. I have learned way more then any other education throughout my college careers.
The only thing I would change abut Chaminade is the portal to register for classes. It is outdated and somewhat confusing

Chaminade has a variety of scholarships they offer students which can be really helpful. There's academic, religious, athletic, and many more scholarship opportunities that the school offers. I love that it's a small school so the students can have better relationships with professors, unlike big public universities where you can often get lost in the crowd. It's easier to get help or clarification when the professor knows you by name and has less students to think about. The small campus allows you to meet lots of new people and it helps when trying to make friends. I have been at Chaminade for two years now and I love it. The education is great quality, the professors are very helpful and make themselves available as much as possible to help students, and the environment is really friendly. I definitely recommend incoming college students to apply at Chaminade because you'll learn so much from great professors while making life long friends.
Great environment, the library is a great place to be. Parking is usually available! I haven't had any issues getting my courses with my academic advisers - they are always so helpful. The class selection is great, and most of the professors are always around to help - as well as getting along with you on an interpersonal level.
