    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for students who want to live off-campus and have a job. You can manage your classes and social life very easily. Chesapeake is also great for those interested in nursing or education.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are considering going to Chesapeake, you should meet with an advisor early. This way you can have a set plan for exactly what you want to accomplish while attending.

    Bang for the buck

    Chesapeake is a very affordable school. You can buy used books to also help lower the price, and at the end of every semester the bookstore will buy back your books.

    Am enjoying being here

    Being at Chesapeake for two years was a great experience. You are able to transition smoothly from high school into college.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers at Chesapeake are very helpful. They give you many different materials to help you study for tests and learn the information better.

    Great for these types of students

    Athletic, Social, and Friendly

    Bang for the buck

    You get a lot of education for the amount that you pay. You can pay a lot higher college bills to go away for college, but you still get the exact same information, and you do not have to pay for room and board.

    Am enjoying being here

    Everybody who attends this school is very friendly. They are all willing to help if you do not understand. You can meet many new friends and form study groups if you all do not undersand something. There are plenty of places around campus that everybody could meet.

    Am learning a lot

    Every teacher that is employed at this school is willing to sit down with each student and explain things if they do not understand. They will find research to prove their explanations are correct.

    Great for these types of students

    This campus is great if you want to still live on your own and still receive an education without a high tuition. It is also great for all types of people with different talents. With the flexible class time ,attending Chesapeake College allows you to still maintain a family life, a job, all while bettering yourself

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Try dual-enrollment while in high school 2. meet with and adviser 3. plan your courses in advance. 4. Stay focus 5. Never base your teachers off of what you hear

    Bang for the buck

    The scholarships that this school offers is great. Many people get full scholarships or close to having everything paid. Because it doesn't include room and board you are not wasting any money. All of the money that is paid is going directly to your education,

    Am enjoying being here

    The atmosphere is wonderful. The people are friendly and all have goals. They are there by choice and not by force which makes this campus better. I formed many friendships on this campus. With the different organizations, there is something for everybody. Although, a small college, the people here have a big heart. They are always doing community service activities and helping out the local counties. In addition, I like the seminars in which are held on campus ranging from help stop smoking, to ways to study and time management.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers here really know how to teach different learning styles. I have taken online classes as well as regular classes. Every class. the teacher is always available by phone, email, or visit to provide extra help to us students. Most of the teachers even give you their personal home and cell numbers and allow you to call WHENEVER you have a question. In addition, the quality of the learning material is on a college level, and the teachers just don't let you slide. They actually grade the work and help you with your mistakes to make you a better student.

    Great for these types of students

    Athletes, part-time students, people returning back to school, job holding people

    Tips for prospective students

    Use your time wisely when you get to college you are going to need a lot of it. Get all the money you can before school starts. Try talking to current or former students on what the school will be like. Study, study, study and do all your work. Work ahead when possible and stay in contact with teachers.

    Bang for the buck

    The price is reasonable but can be a little overwhelming if you aren't in a state to pay or finances take a turn for the worst. Scholarships are available for studenst they just don't offer student loans.

    Am enjoying being here

    There isn't much to do out here, unless you play sports or have a job. The environment is perfect for school though.

    Am learning a lot

    This college has taught me a lot of things that did not know or has taught me things that i need to do better. The most important thing is that college is nothing like high school.

    Campus Safety

    This past semester we had to ramp up campus security due to increased car break ins.

    Greek Life

    PTK is the Honor Society for 2-year colleges. They are very active.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is ALWAYS something going on.

    Great for these types of students

    Chesapeake College is great for everyone!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I don't know about any traditions.

    Bang for the buck

    It is reasonably priced for a college but the textbooks are expensive as all get-out.

    What to do for fun

    There are tons of clubs and events that happen all semester long! Concerts, movies, cartoon days, holidays (Halloween, Easter, Pirate Day).

    Food and Dining

    The food has a tendency to be greasy and over priced, but the staff is wonderful!

    Dorm Life

    Well, if we actually had dorms, I'm sure they would be at the same caliber at the classrooms and offices.

    Academic Rigor

    Chesapeake College is a great stepping stone. It will help transition you from high school to college level work in no time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you keep up on your work and try not to fall behind. Some teachers are forgiving, while others will fail you. Make friends and get involved. It looks really good on a transcript and it helps the staff get to know you better.

    In three sentences

    Chesapeake College is a small, close-knit community, 2-year college that will do almost anything to help you succeed. Helping with work-studies, free drop-in tutoring, and help for students with special needs is their goal. They get on a personal level with the students, even getting to the point of helping them get jobs outside of the college.

    Campus Safety

    There are always the guards riding around on golf carts. I've never seen or heard anything that made me feel threatened.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students returning to school after a while. Most of my classes are about 50 50 on right out highschool students, and returning students.

    Bang for the buck

    It's cheap which is good but sometimes you get what you pay for with certain teachers.

    What to do for fun

    Um basically nothing.

    Food and Dining

    Food is delicious. A little on the pricy side but for the amount you get and the quality it's worth it. Plus the cafeteria workers are super nice.

    Dorm Life

    There aren't dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are harder than others but most aren't that challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get a rain jacket, it's always raining. Get to the school twenty minutes, at least, before your class starts to try and find a parking spot.

    In three sentences

    Chesapeake is a good school for anyone looking to transfer or get their Associates. In some classes the level of skill needed is a little ridiculously low for my liking. The atmosphere is pretty friendly and it's not a big school.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty good and not super expensive. The cheese steaks are to die for.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Every student that I have met that sincerely tries their best has not failed even one single class. The professors are always ready and willing to help all the students that ask for help. There is also a honors program that allows students to be in a much smaller class and allows us to work with other students that sincerely care about their education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Never give up. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

    In three sentences

    This is a great school with strong academics, athletics, and student life. It also is a very clean and beautiful place to learn. It is a school where everyone can go and feel at home at.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are an athlete and want to go somewhere where they take their sports seriously, this is the place. We work hard, travel a lot, but still have fun. The teams are family.

    What to do for fun

    Fun is what you make it. I don't have a lot of time for entertainment since I have classes and lots of practice for my sport. But there is shopping, movies, restuarants, nearby and of course parties that you create:)

    Food and Dining

    Since there are no dorms, I live in off-campus housing and am responsible for my own food and dining. Easton is about 15 minutes away and there are tons of restuarants etc...

    Dorm Life

    I live in off campus housing as an athlete, there are no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes are difficult but that's to be expected, it is college. The classroom size is nice, not big.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to be out in the middle of nowhere. There aren't a whole lot of things to do, so if you can't make friends and entertain yourself, this is not the place for you. As an athlete, I stay very busy so it's a little bit different.

    In three sentences

    I rate Chesapeake College as a B+. I love the open area, small campus feel: It's a great JUCO especially for people coming from a small high school, plenty of opportunity to adjust to college life and for athletes they have a great sports program.

    Since it's a community college there isn't as much, but different clubs have different activities. Like we have a masquerade ball coming up.

    Dorm Life

    It's a community college so you don't dorm there. You have to commute.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just be a respectful student and focus on your studies. Do the reading and take notes and pay attention in class and you will do well.

    In three sentences

    It is a very good starting point. The counselors here are very helpful in helping you decide. It is financially easy as well.
