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.

Around campus you can find a variety of restaurants including Greek, Italian, Indian, Vegan/Vegetarian, Italian, and even Japanese. Up King Street and Waialae there are hardly any chain restaurants and tons of different ethnic food to choose from! Typically you are looking to pay $8-10 for a meal and quite a few of the dining facilities offer student discounts. However, if you're looking for a cheap place that offers a lot of food, go down to Genki Sushi!

Interior Design Program – This is the only Interior Design program in the state. The University is an accredited school, but the Interior Design program is not a FIDER accredited program so beware! I cannot rank the program very high because the instructors are not high caliber. If they had a good background of Interior Design experience, it would be extremely helpful in their teachings. It would be good, too, if they had a real Interior Design education also. Being an alumni from the program does not say much when they program was just really evolving and it is not a good one yet! Nice, Catholic university with Christian values though. But the tuition is rather high, so the education should be good; but for this program, the graduates of the interior design program will have a large loan and the job prospects available to them is not great. It may be the field in general, but the graduates of the program and not standouts.
