CUH Spring 2019 Events and Activities


Whether you’re a freshman or senior its easy to lose track of all the events happening at Chaminade. So why not plan it out ahead of time here are a few significant events that Chaminade Office of Student Activities and Leadership is offering next semester.

“We offer everything,” said Mitch Steffey, director of the Office of Student Activities and Leadership (O.S.A.L.). “We offer so much stuff that if you’re bored, you’re boring.”

January 2019
Scheduled to open on students’ first day back is the mobile cart that has been placed behind the outside stage in front of the Sullivan Family Library. The cart will be serving milk tea and other prepackaged goods from the Provisions On Demand. It will be ready to receive the rush of students and be excepting cash, cards or meal plan dollars as forms of payment.

Intramural sports give college students a chance to get physical without needing to be in a gym. Chaminade offers volleyball and basketball leagues made up entirely of CUH students. To sign up students walk into O.S.A.L. in the first month of the semester with friends to make a team or walk in alone and be placed on a team. Game times and dates are still being scheduled, but O.S.A.L will make sure to notify you when the season starts.
Opportunities Fair, which was previously known as Club Fest, will provide all students a one-stop shop to everything offered at Chaminade. You will be able to find out about clubs, offices, even work on campus. The fair will be located at the library lawn slash under the tents on Jan. 16.

Martin Luther King Jr. parade will be on Jan. 21. Chaminade offers students a chance to walk in the parade and be seen in the community. The parade will begin at Ala Moana Beach Park and end at Kapiolani Park where there will be a post-parade celebration.

February 2019

Makahiki Festival, which is run by the Hawaiian Club is an ancient Hawaiian tradition. It Celebrates harvest time and Lono, the Hawaiian god connected with showers and productiveness. It was also a time to momentarily stop war and changed daily habits. Hawaiian Club will celebrate this by having food, games and dances. The exact date is still being determined but keep an eye out on bulletin boards.

March 2019
CSGA will be hosting a cultural potluck event. The event will allow students, faculty and staff a chance to try new foods from different cultures. Everyone is welcome to bring food, but a card must be provided to tell people what it is and its cultural significance. The hope is by sharing food and eating together is a great way to foster even stronger ties in the Chaminade community. Location for the event will be under the tents next to the Sullivan Family Library and will fall on March 20.

April 2019
The extravaganza is a Chaminade tradition offers community and student the chance to different cultures through dance. The immersion experience can begin to give those who attend a better understanding and show shared experiences between cultures. The event will be held on April 12, and while the start time is still unknown, it typically begins around 7 p.m.

The Co-Curricular award ceremony that will fall on April 17 but will be by invite only. Chaminade students, friends, family and faculty gathered together in celebration of the awarded and nominated students. Steffey said he feels that it’s a special time for hard-working students to finally get recognized for their dedication to their school and studies.

Steffey said that his job throughout the year is to increases out-of-classroom experiences and encourage personal growth and leadership training. He stated that if there is anything a student wants to do all they would have to do is ask.
“It comes down to what you want to do in your free time,” Steffey said. “Let’s do it.”
