Chesapeake College Reviews
I began my college journey at Chesapeake college as a dual enrollment student. As a high school student, I never experienced the college lifestyle before, and Chesapeake greeted me with hospitality. The friendly advisors answered all of my questions and informed me of my major's parameters. Not to mention the amazing academically inclined professors. Also, the campus has many student support programs. Overall, I enjoyed my experience as a Chesapeake College student and felt the perfect college experience.
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!
