When you chose Chesapeake, you chose a college committed to your success. Our faculty, staff and administration work together as a community to create an environment in which learning flourishes.
You will learn in classrooms, labs, and online. Our faculty have ensured that your courses prepare you to transfer or to get a job in your chosen field. If you are not yet decided on a curriculum, we can help you find the academic or career path that meets your goals and takes advantage of your strengths.
You will learn in the library, where print and electronic media can transport you around the world, back in time or into the future.
You will learn from each other, especially from those with different life experiences and opinions.
You will learn the value of team work on the athletic fields, and be transformed by the power of a live performance in the theater.
Whether you have come to Chesapeake directly from high school or after years of working and raising a family, you will find opportunities to learn and grow here and, I’m sure, create some of your own. We welcome you as a part of our community.
