Chesapeake is a nice campus. Clean and easy to get around. Most of the teachers are good and knowledgeable about what they teach, though I have had a few bad teachers (in the sense that they didn't teach at all). The advisors and office staff could use a bit more training - they messed up my schedule one year. Not really a party school, but they did have a few events that were fun! Overall, a nice, cheap college to attend.

MY experience at Chesapeake thus far has been excellent, there are so many resources available and so many faculty members willing to help you succeed. I wouldn't change a thing about this school!
All staff are committed in the students success and are willing to help students. Communication with anyone on the campus is always easy and quick, if the student and professor are fully open with each other about the course and it's work then the class will be easier to manage.

Taking honor's courses is highly recommended! I took one and the real world experiences are incredible!
