Review College of Southern Maryland
College of Southern Maryland is an affordable college. I enjoy the campus life, such as the lounge areas where you're able to relax and study, the many activities and events that are held, and everyone generally seems to get along well. The staff at CSM are very friendly and all of the professors I have do a great job of teaching and helping yo to understand. Many professors, i have realized, will go out of their way to make extra study sessions and even give out personal numbers to ensure that you can get all the help you need. There is plenty of parking areas, which is convenient, and the grounds are well kept. If i had to change anything though, i would like to have better food on campus and i would like to have an area with "upcoming events" posted somewhere on campus. They do have many events happening, but i usually don't know about it until i walk right into the event. I'm someone who likes to plan ahead and see whats coming up.
The College of Southern Maryland is a great school to start at! The largest class you will have will have about 30 people. The professors are very friendly and encourage you to get help outside the classroom if needed. Professors are quick to respond to emails and will answer your questions in a timely manner. The only thing that is lacking on campus is extra-curricular activities and clubs.
As a student I think the College of Southern Maryland is a great choice for students who have just graduated from highschool and don't quite have the money for university. Though it is community college I would say it has just as much to offer as university. There are clubs, events, tutors and other characteristics. However, there are a few things as far as advising goes. Be very careful of the advisor you get because they might recommend the wrong class for you to take. Its rare but, always make sure to get in touch with another advisor just in case. Another word of advice you wont always be able to get the answers you need over the phone if you have a problem. So sometimes go to the college in person to get the situation handled. If you ever need assistance or are confused about something ask for help there are people that will point you in the right direction.
