CASTING CALL FOR FALL THEATER PRODUCTION 'THESE SHINING LIVES'

Students and community members are invited to audition for CSM’s fall theater production of “These Shining Lives” on Aug. 1-3. Based on the true story of the “radium girls,” the play chronicles the strength and determination of women who refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.

Destini BaldwinThis week, hear from Destini Baldwin ‘14, a CSM graduate and current program coordinator for Student Equity and Success here at the college:

"Ever since I was young, I’ve always loved being around people with more experience than me, because they inspire me to get to where they are. Now, at the college, I’m surrounded by so many people who inspire me."

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.

NOT SURE WHAT CLASSES TO TAKE? It’s that time of year again: registration. Finding the schedule that fits your needs and academic goals can feel like playing the least-fun version of Tetris ever.

CSM’s academic advisors can help you get the most out of Student Planning and make choosing your classes easier. Academic advisors can also help you navigate the opportunities you encounter and overcome any challenges you face on the road to achieving your goals.

Please note, advising services are in high demand during the month of August! We strongly encourage you to call into the virtual queue to be assisted via phone call or Zoom in order to have access to the greatest number of available advisors and reduce your overall wait time.

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!
