MEET OUR FACULTY: MICHELLE BROSCO CHRISTIAN

Michelle Brosco ChristianThis week, hear from CSM communication professor Michelle Brosco Christian:

STUDENT RESOURCES

CSM COLLEGE SURVIVAL GUIDE

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. 

FEELING LESS THAN JOLLY? This time of year can be stressful or overwhelming, and it’s okay if you’re not feeling okay. Whatever’s affecting you, CSM Counseling Services are available to accompany and support you in a wide range of emotional and mental health areas. If you’re not ready to talk about it yet, you can also use “R u ok, Hawks?” – an anonymous tool to connect you with resources to support your mental health.

FOOD ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH CSM’S HAWK PANTRY. The Hawk Pantry is a weekly opportunity for students experiencing food insecurity to receive up to 30 pounds of food per week, available on the La Plata (Wednesday), Leonardtown (Thursday), and Prince Frederick (Monday) Campuses.

Whether you’re looking for an on- or off-campus job, a paid internship, or a potential career path, College Central Network (formerly Job Connection) is the go-to career posting site for CSM students and alumni.

You can upload your current resume or use College Central Network’s template to create a resume and begin the search for the position that’s right for you. It also includes a video and print library on topics related to getting and keeping the job, such as salary negotiations, attending job and career fairs, and more!
