Real Students. Real Stories.

Diane ReidThis week, hear from Diane Reid, a former CSM student in the small engine repair program:

"The mystery of how things work has always interested me. When I saw CSM’s listings for Small Engine Repair, I was excited and thought it was a wonderful opportunity to learn something new and to maybe find work in this field.

For the first time in my life, I couldn’t wait for classes to start. Our instructor made the class fun with numerous stories of life in the auto repair industry that also helped to illustrate the skills we were learning in class. It was my first experience learning something I really cared about in a classroom setting.

With what I learned at CSM, I got hired at Atlantic Cycle, where I do service writing and bike assembly. I am beyond thrilled that I am able to do this type of work—the College of Southern Maryland helped me realize a hidden dream."

Hear more stories like this from CSM students past and present at Real Students, Real Stories.
