College of Southern Maryland Reviews
College of Southern Maryland is an excellent School to further your education or to receive training in one of your favorite hobbies. This school covers education in every facet of life. My daughter started college at 16 years old, there and the students and professors made her feel welcome. They also offer an awesome transfer program, to Universities of your choosing, which cuts your costs tremendously. My overall experience at College of Southern Maryland was great!
College of Southern Maryland is a 2 year community college that is allowing me to develop my portfolio and begin my graphic design major. All classrooms are small classroom settings with teacher to student interaction and guidance. This College is really helping me get a head start before I transfer. It makes it easy to transfer all my credits and there is lots of help available! College of Southern Maryland also collaborates with the county High Schools, which allowed me to begin my college classes and credits early when I was a senior in High School through dual enrollment with College of Southern Maryland. There are also lots of CSM campuses available depending on where you live, which also displays a variety of options if some classes aren’t offered at one specific campus. Not to mention it is much cheaper and helping me get my first two years of education at a lower cost!
My following experience with College of southern Maryland was very helpful and great. At (CSM) the professor's help students with their majors along directing them on their path. The students are able to schedule their time while being able to study for their classes and find their ideal location. Although this college was my first experience, i must say it seems a bit difficult for those that are new. But the hard and determined effort you put in would make your experience here great.
