March 2017 Events at CSM

Job Fair

The College of Southern Maryland will start off March with a CSM Alumni & Friends Connection Dinner.

CSM alumni are invited to the CSM Alumni & Friends Connection for dinner and to share insights at one of three focus group sessions. Ideas shared will directly impact how CSM alumni are served. Dinners and focus group sessions will be held at 6 pm March 7 at the College of Southern Maryland La Plata Campus in the Center for Business and Industry (BI Building), Room 113E at 8730 Mitchell Road; at 6 pm March 9 at the Leonardtown Campus Building C, Room 216 at 22950 Hollywood Road; and at 6 pm March 14 at the Prince Frederick Campus Flagship Building, Room 119 at 115 J.W.

The college is also interested in hearing from alumni who can’t attend. Click here.

Jay Lilly, an alumnus of CSM, Class of 1975, and co-chair of the CSM Foundation Alumni Committee, is an advocate for maintaining ties with the college and with others who attended. “It is a great way to rekindle past friendships and relationships and to interact with fellow alumni to see what paths their lives have taken and allows you to expand your circle of friends,” Lilly said. It is a way to “expand your personal and professional contacts.”

Staying in touch with CSM also offers the opportunity to help make the college continue to improve. “What a great opportunity — give back to the college and its community that helped you build your foundation,” Lilly said. “Pay it forward for others to have the chance to excel and succeed.”
