I must say the campus is peaceful and easy to navigate, they're constantly maintaining the property. When I first started Chesapeake I didn't know what to expect, I wanted to be have a more social experience but yet pass my classes not just to pass but to pass with knowledge. Every single teacher I've had over the years has been wonderful, if you put in the effort they'll work with you on things you don't understand they don't want to see you fail. The college also offers free tutoring ! Overall the campus is great especially for a community college.

Chesapeake is a great college to start out at and then transfer from. I would recommend it to anyone that lives in or around the area. I do believe that the college could communicate with the students better, but other than that the college is a good community college that has way cheaper offers than a four year. It is also a better choice than a four year when you want to get your prerequisites out of the way without spending a great deal of money.
I have had a great almost 2 years at Chesapeake! The cost of tuition and classes are affordable and the professors really do care for their students and want to see them succeed. This is a great option for students who want to save money while still figuring out a major.
