A warm aloha is in order for the new class of Chaminade University students. In mid-August, Chaminade faculty, staff and students all gathered to welcome the newest members of our ‘ohana and their parents during the three-day New Student Orientation.
The event started on August 16 when new students moved into their new homes on campus. The liveliness of the day included an opportunity for students to meet their faculty while parents mingled nearby, a trolley tour of Kaimuki, lunch with our Marianist Brothers and a campus office open house. The busy day concluded with a nice dinner at Silversword Cafe, where students and their parents met with the Director and Resident Advisors of Residential Life.
The excitement continued on Friday and Saturday with more campus explorations, a presidential welcome and prayer service, a resource fair, convocation, a new student luau and various day trips around the island to Ka’au Crater, Maunawili Falls, Waimanalo and Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck in Kahuku.
The event concluded on Sunday with a Diamond Head Hike in the morning, morning mass and brunch.
Congratulations to our new Chaminade students–we’re excited to see where these next few years take you and support you on this new, exciting journey!
