Real Students. Real Stories.

Beverly BraswellThis week, hear from Beverly Braswell ’22, a CSM grad currently studying mechanical engineering at the University of Maryland:

"Fixing machinery has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Ever since I could walk, I have helped in projects varying from restoring classic cars to maintaining farming equipment on my family’s farm. I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of looking at a broken piece of equipment and reverse-engineering what went wrong to find the best solution.

Majoring in mechanical engineering provides the perfect outlet for my mechanical knowledge and desire for invention. My plan is to design to not only produce novel, renewable technologies and energy-efficient vehicles, but to explore efficient methods of implementing them and seamlessly transitioning our current infrastructure. I strive to be an energy solutions innovator."

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.

LIVING WITH A DISABILITY?
Disability Support Services is here to ensure equitable access to education for all of our students. DSS assistance isn’t limited to physical or “obvious” disabilities, either; students living with “invisible disabilities” like dyslexia or ADHD can also get the support they need.
