What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a school that best fits the students needs and morals. It all depends on the student. I have found that smaller class sizes give individual students the chance to feel like they are part of a bigger community. That "together-ness" is essential in colleges. College should be a great experience, and what better way to experience it with people who share the same values and goals as you. I would also suggest finding a college that offers a range of extracurricular activities. This will give students the chance to bond with other students they may not have the same classes with.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The school is very diverse so anyone can attend without feeling left out.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Very intimate class settings so the teacher is more available to talk to if need be. Students are all very close to each other because it is a small campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college isn?t always the easiest thing to do. For myself, I looked at class sizes. I like the idea of connecting with my professors and my fellow classmates. Other thing to look at is the location of your college. Do you like being in cold weather or hot weather more? If you have allergies like I do, how is the environment for your allergies? Another important aspect is does the college have your major? Are you going to take on a minor?

What's unique about your campus?

I think that Chaminade University is the best because the advisors help you to make sure that you graduate in a timely manner. The professors are always there to help with anything that you need. The small class sizes are great. There are only 30 students maximum in each classroom, which makes it easier to concentrate and gain a better sense of togetherness.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell both parent and students to look for the school that offers the best program that interests you. I would also tell the student to look at the background of the school and the website to see what alumni and others have to say about the school in general. Then i would tell them to make a decision on the school of their choice by thinking about how they would feel in that place and by how hard they are willing to work to complete the area of study that they had thought about going into.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Chaminade is extremly accepting and helping to everyone. The staff and faculty make sure the students know that they are there for us. The classes at Chaminade are small which allow the students and professors to interact that make it easier for us to better learn.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

parents and students should really sit down together and dicuss what they are looking for in a university or college. communication is very important btw a family and it can help you with choosing the right school. some schools can be out of reach financially and you dont want to end up in debt when there are other schools out there that offer great degrees and great finanical aid. most private school are expensive however they ofter the most financial aid from what i discovered when i applied to college. really do the research together as a family and be open to move from home too! sometimes leaving home tends to make you become a bit more responsible! its hard for parents but in the end even parents willl see how much there child has grown! once you pick the right school and you are there mingle as much as you can! it can be hard at times to meet people especially if family and friends from home keep saying they miss you and want you to come back! be strong because you are going to learn more about yourself when you are away at college than those who dont!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

the fact that teachers are there for you and you can probably call them at any hour with questions. teachers at chaminade really want to help you!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents: let you kids apply to wherever they want and try not to limit or bribe them into staying in the area. They will resent you for it, most likely. & Students: Living with parents doesn't allow you to have the full college experience. Go for the school that you want to and offers the program you want, even if it means taking out loans! In the end the experience will be worth having!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

You shouldn't attend this school if you like skipping class, want a large class sizes, or are looking to biuld up a large academic or social network. Definitely not a party school, must stay focused and not get in trouble with any of the admin because they will not help you!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Small class sizes = personal help in every subject!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Personally, I feel that you only have one college experience. Once you get out of high school, college is a whole other world. You have to find a college that fits your personality and has the curriculum you enjoy. College is there to help you figure out your career, not a job, but a career, so be wise when selecting a college. Don't pick a college because your friend is attending it, pick a college that you know will benefit you in the long run because after all it is YOUR FUTURE! To the parents, try to be supportive as possible for any decisions your child has to make for themselves, it is part of the growing up process. So new college students, please make the best of your college experience and live your experience with NO REGRETS! Do everything you wish to accomplish because down the line you don't ever want to say "WHAT IF?" GOOD LUCK TO YOU ON THE NEW CHAPTER OF YOUR LIVES!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

A university instilling Christian values, morale, moderately competitive academics, culturally diverse, small class setting, on & off campus instruction to meet the needs of every student.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Choosing a school is a hard choice to make with the cost tuition, books, housings, transportation and other necessities. The right college is not the prestigious name, but the academics involved. The committment, hard work and dedication to schoolwork, making friends, adapting to social change, cultural diffirences, and the appreciation of a college education. The colleges needs to be economically feasible for you & your family.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Financial Aid. The process of the Financial aid checks distributed after one week of instruction. Some students become financially strapped with rent, books and other necessities.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take your time and look at all your choices. Find the school that best fits you and your needs. Don't go to a school just because your boyfriend/girlfriend or your friends from high school are going there. The school that fits them may not fit you. Get to know your professors and councilors they can help you with choosing the right classes and future career moves.
