Chaminade University of Honolulu Reviews
Going to a small school has its benefits but also has its curses. The benefit is, you'll get to know your classmates and professors pretty easily. When you're having a rough day, a lot of professors will notice and sometimes will reach out to you. The downside is that gossip spreads like wildfire and sometimes I feel like my classmates don't realize they aren't in high school anymore. There's absolutely no party scene here and if you don't live in any of the dorms, sometimes it's a little hard to socialize. The residential department (AKA ResLife) is insanely strict and if you aren't prepared for monthly roomchecks or security and/or RAs searching your rooms if they suspect something, don't dorm here. They will find any reason to charge you and fine your student billing account. The people here are nice depending on who you find yourself hanging out with. Overall, I would say my experience at Chaminade has been a 5.5/10.
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.
