"I work two jobs and don't have much free time, so I needed a flexible class schedule. I've been able to take classes around my work hours here at Chesapeake. I also found a friendly, supportive atmosphere. I came to Chesapeake for the flexibility, but I'm leaving well-prepared academically. My credits are transferring to Salisbury University where I will start classes in the fall. My goal is to be a Certified Public Accountant and Chesapeake has given me a great start."
