IN THEIR OWN WORDS

 

Lamarr Patterson pics

Lamarr Patterson
Current Student
Construction Management

"Who am I? I am an artist who tells his life story through art.
My mother recently showed me a picture of my 2-year-old self, drawing, surrounded by crayons and paper. Ever since then, I have wanted to be an architect, urban planner, interior designer, and a fashion designer, which is why I’m studying Construction Management—it encompasses all the things I look forward to becoming and exploring."

"When I was 10, my mother took me on a tour of the county. We toured the CSM campus and I took pictures in front of the sign and the BI building. I was so excited to become a student one day, and I will be the first in my immediate family to receive a degree from CSM. After receiving my associate degree from CSM, I will continue my studies until I earn my doctorate."

The College Survival Guide is a recurring feature that directs members of the CSM community to free resources and support for whatever challenges they may be facing. At CSM, no hawk has to fly alone.

WANT TO CATCH UP OR GET AHEAD IN YOUR COURSES?
The best time to get help with your classwork is before it becomes an emergency. Start the semester strong with the myriad of academic support options available for free to all CSM students, including the Math Resource Center, live tutoring, 24/7 access to study help through ThinkStorm, and a whole lot more.
