Chaminade University of Honolulu Joins Tuition Rewards

April 10, 2009 -- Chaminade University of Honolulu, a private coeducational university founded in 1955 by the Society of Mary, a Roman Catholic religious order also known as the Marianists, today became the first Tuition Rewards member in the state of Hawaii.

Chaminade is located in the historic Kaimuki district of Honolulu. The school specializes in business, communication, criminal justice, education, forensic science, interior design and religious studies degree programs. Top students can apply for selection in the inter-disciplinary Hogan Entrepreneurial Program, open to students from all undergraduate majors.

Chaminade is named after the founder of the Society of Mary, Father William Joseph Chaminade, a survivor of the French Revolution persecutions of Catholic leaders. The school became a four-year college in 1957 and added graduate programs in 1977. In 1982, Chaminade defeated #1-ranked University of Virginia, with 7-foot-5 Ralph Sampson, in what is considered the biggest upset in college basketball history, 77-72.
