The Chaminade University of Honolulu is a great school academically. The classroom sizes are much smaller compared to UH Manoa and HPU. I like the smaller class sizes because it allows me to have 1-1 with the professor. I am also able to stand out in the classroom rather than being one with the majority of the class in a big lecture hall. Since I am in the nursing program, being able to talk to my professors allows me to build that confidence of not being scared to talk to them when I need help.

I like that Chaminade University is a small school, our class sizes for a university range from 20-30 ratio per 1 professor. I do not feel overwhelmed with the class size as I transferred from a community college. Almost all our nursing professors hold doctrine degrees and enjoy our campus. I enjoy my academic advisor helps guide me and is available when I need assistance.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Class requirements are outlined very specifically and need to be followed to the T. I recommend reviewing everything prior to admitting.



I like the thoughtful academic educators and the simulation facilities that we use on campus. The library has lots of very informative resources to choose from. The classroom sizes are not too crowded and I feel that I am getting to know my peers and my professors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I do hope in the future that there will be more facility clinical experience for every student instead of a selected few. It would also be nice to have more lights around the library at night. It is very dim walking up and down the stairs at night with little to no security.

Chaminade is a great University to go to when you want to attend a small school where you feel like family. The teachers really care about their students and try their best to help you succeed. The only negative aspect is the cafeteria food is not the best. However, there are many nearby food places with great local foods.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing that is negative about Chaminade is the food. They don't have the best food options in their cafeteria. Nevertheless, there are great nearby places to eat like the Red Elephant Thai food and Shaloha Pita!

Chaminade University makes resources readily available and easy to access. The teachers are all kind and very competent as well. Their online schooling is one of the best I've ever done, although it is quite pricey and they don't consider the needs of low-income students in my opinion.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school is quite pricey and there are many fees for online students. Any low-income students should be aware that they don't consider our needs.
