Now That You're in College Get Smart, Get Involved!
Welcome from the Director!
Thanks for choosing Chesapeake College; it is an honor to have you here! Want to make the most of your college education? Get involved! Research shows that students who are involved with their college and its activities get better grades and stay in school!
But you're smart. This just makes sense, doesn't it? You will care more about all aspects of your education when you invest yourself in your school - when things matter to you. Your time in the classroom is a big part of your college education, but involvement greatly enhances your college experience.
So how do you get involved? What's the first step when you're new to the campus or don't know many people?
Attend New Student Orientation. Talk to other students and to Chesapeake's friendly staff and faculty. Ask questions! Find the Student Activities Office or Athletics Office and ask how you can get involved. Participate in clubs, organizations, sports, and student activities to make the most of your college experience. Can't find something to suit your interests? Maybe you'll want to organize a new club! You'll meet new friends, make helpful contacts, and learn about yourself and others.
Please take a few minutes to look through this site to discover more about Chesapeake's involvement opportunities!
