Student Testimonial

  

Ana-Alecia Stauffer, 24, of Hollywood, was the first graduate in the college’s Scholars Program. Stauffer, who graduated from CSM with an associate’s degree in history in 2007 and who attended the University of Maryland College Park for a semester, returned to CSM while saving funds to continue toward a bachelor’s degree in history. “I didn’t want to stop coming to school,” said Stauffer, who added that her mentor, Professor Christine Arnold-Lourie, is encouraging her to continue to work toward her ultimate goal of a doctorate in history and a teaching career. “She has been wonderful and has been responsible for my love of history.”
