In 1978, the Community College at St. Mary’s established at Great Mills High School.
Charles the Hawk (a red-shouldered hawk) became the mascot of the college in 1975. Today, the Hawk is a frequent visitor to baseball games at the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, as well as around campus.
Individual visits include a tour of our campus led by a staff member from the College of Southern Maryland. Please plan to allow approximately one hour for your visit, as this allows ample time to answer your questions.
Group visits are designed for schools, clubs, and organizations to experience our campus. Group Visits may be scheduled on days, when the college is open. We only schedule one group visit per day to allow your students the best experience possible!
To schedule your visit please email us at Visit@csmd.edu . Please contact us at least three weeks in advance to coordinate your customized visit.
