Real Stories

Jason Szklany headshot
Once I decided to make my way into college again I don’t know that I ever considered anywhere other than CSM to start things off. It just seemed like the most relevant option. All in all, CSM has been a wonderful experience. I’m humbled and filled with gratitude to have received the consistent support and mentorship through programs like S-STEM. There is no doubt that CSM changed my life. It served as a lens to focus my drive into something definable.

Without my program and CSM, I don’t think I would ever have discovered my passion for laboratory science. I’ve decided to transfer to George Washington University to earn my bachelor’s after I complete my associate degree, as the next step to attending medical school to become a pathologist.
