Welcome to New Student Orientation!

New Student Orientation is an opportunity for you to be introduced to the Chaminade University community & campus. All new first-year, transfer, and exchange students are expected to attend New Student Orientation.

Our sessions and activities are designed to provide a foundation for your academic and social success by linking you to many campus services & resources. Orientation assists first-year students in bridging the gap between high school & college and offers transfer students an opportunity to easily transition into a different university and different experiences. During Orientation, you will:

  • Explore campus to learn about Chaminade's resources and services;
  • Learn about safety, security, and emergency preparedness on-campus and on O'ahu;
  • Connect with faculty to hear more about academic life at Chaminade;
  • Discover community at Chaminade and our expectations regarding student behavior;
  • Meet other new students and form new friendships with classmates;

'Ohana (families) are welcome to attend as well as we have created specialized information sessions just for family members. As a family member, attending New Student Orientation will help you:

  • Understand Chaminade's commitment to your student's academic and co-curricular success;
  • Develop relationships with other new Chaminade 'ohana and University staff/faculty;
  • Discuss safety and security on campus and prepare for emergency and weather situations;
  • Discover ways to support your student throughout their Chaminade experience; and
