Chaminade University of Honolulu is a private, coeducational institution located in Honolulu, Hawaii. Founded as Saint Louis Junior College in 1955 by the Society of Mary (also known as Marianists), Chaminade is the only Catholic university in the state. Becoming a four-year institution in 1957, the school changed its name to Chaminade College in honor of Father William Joseph Chaminade, a French Catholic priest who had survived persecution during the French Revolution. Graduate programs were added in 1977 and the college’s name was changed once again, this time to Chaminade University of Honolulu.

Chaminade offers 24 major and 21 minor courses of study leading to the awarding of associate’s and bachelor’s degrees. Six master’s degree programs are also available in areas including business administration, education and forensic sciences. Special learning programs include the Campus Ministry, the First-Year Experience Seminar and Service-Learning, a program of volunteer service in the community. Students additionally have the opportunity to study for a semester at one of Chaminade’s two sister universities.

Chaminade’s main campus is situated on 65 urban acres in the Kaimuki neighborhood of Honolulu, near Waikiki beach. There is a mixture of old and new buildings, most constructed in the Spanish Mission style with white stucco walls and red tiled roofs. Students can choose to live in private, off-campus housing or in one of three on-campus or three off-campus dorms. Extracurricular activities include Student Governing Associations and over 36 sponsored clubs and organizations. Each year, several on-campus cultural clubs participate in the Pacific Island Review and International Extravaganza, events that showcase traditional music and dance of the Pacific Islands.
