Student Organizations

More than thirty-six student organizations have been recognized on Chaminade’s campus. They offer all students a chance to pursue interests, develop leadership skills, and extend their activities beyond the classroom. From recreational clubs and specific ethnic interests to honors associations and organizations whose central point is on pre-professional development, the Chaminade student organizations serve a wide variety of interests.
