The excitement overflowed as fifth graders from Catholic schools across the islands spent the day on the Chaminade University of Honolulu campus on Thursday, November 9. The day-long activity was organized by the university and Hawaii Catholic Schools.
According to a Chaminade, studies show that middle school students who went on a campus visit had more positive perceptions of college than those who did not. Research also shows the importance of starting college and career planning and awareness in middle school. Early exposure to a college campus makes a difference, especially among first-generation college-bound, and other underrepresented groups, which are an integral element to increasing college enrollment and diversity on campus.
MSOS students started the day with an authentic city bus ride to Chaminade. They attended a variety of classes and ended their day with an official “graduation” ceremony. Mahalo HCS and Chaminade for giving our students with opportunity
