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.

Hawaii: the Melting Pot – Here at Chaminade University the school consist of all types of races. Majority mainly being Pacific Islander and Asian. I attend a school of different types of people and beliefs. Everyone is accepted at Chaminade no matter how odd or different they seem. We all here are family and accept on another no matter what.Lastly, sexual orientation here is expressed freely! Our most popular group is the Lesbian & Gay group. Overall, it is a small school with extraordinary people.

For those 18 at up there are different clubs and bars in Waikiki and Downtown Honolulu for many students to enjoy. The nightlife scene is very beautiful and filled with fun and excitement. The bus is free to take as long as you have your school ID, however you may have to take a cab back to campus, which isn't very expensive since everything is close by. And having friends to split the cost of a cab with makes it a lot cheaper!
