What They Are Saying About Us

Thoughts from our Students

After attending my first Awakening Retreat with Campus Ministry, I have learned that there is a huge support system here at Chaminade University.

I’ve learned more about the spirituality that was instilled in me by my parents and my faith was strengthened through my interaction with my peers.

During my time with Campus Ministry I’ve learned to engage with random people and have become more outgoing. I’ve also learned more about the religious life of the community.
