"Chesapeake College prepared me very well for transfer to the University of Maryland College Park. My classes at Chesapeake were as challenging as the classes I'm taking at Maryland now. I wanted to begin college close to home and on a smaller campus. That plan has worked well for me, and I'm glad I got my start at Chesapeake."
