Student Experience


Cecile Sorensen
Cecile Sorensen Denmark I loved the small classes and the attention I received from my professors. I met Maggie Skaff, who helped me get everything set up for my visa. The great thing about CSM's International Student Program is that Maggie makes me feel like I'm the most important student on campus and she has done so much to help me succeed.
Elena Seynova
Elena Seynova Russia CSM gave me the strength to believe in myself. The college also provided me with the information I needed to transfer so that I could continue my education. Transfer Services made my search for a university easier and less time consuming. In fall 2012, Elena transferred to San Francisco University and is studying international business. In looking back on her decision to attend CSM, Elena says, “I am very proud to be an alumnus of CSM."
Jose Angel Ortiz
Jose Angel Ortiz After 10 years in the restaurant business, Jose “Angel” Ortiz decided to return to school and pursue a new career in cosmetology. He chose CSM because he heard that the cosmetology program had an outstanding reputation. “Attending CSM helped change my life. I received constant encouragement from my cosmetology instructors, Suzanne Russell and Becky Boosalis, who were also my mentors. They helped to build my confidence and never let me down.”

Catherine Raye-Wong
Catherine Raye-Wong Catherine arrived at CSM equipped with ambition and drive to pursue her lifelong career goal of becoming a lawyer. Having a full time job presents an extra set of challenges for many students but Catherine found that CSM addressed multiple needs involved in balancing work and school.
Keyxa Henriquez
Keyxa Henriquez Venezuela CSM offers students the opportunity to improve and continue their education and has a great staff to help in setting goals.
Fabian Miranda
Fabian Miranda Fabian Miranda isn’t afraid to try out new jobs. Consider that in recent years he’s driven trucks, fitted shoes for women at a local department store and passed surgical equipment to doctors at a medical center. So he wasn’t afraid to jump from biology and anatomy courses into a technology program where the training lasted just one semester. The Network Cabling Specialist Program, launched at CSM last semester, gives students the knowledge and handson experience they need to land jobs in the fast-paced, high speed world of information technology. Students learn to design, fabricate, install and test copper wire and fiber optic cable systems. “I enrolled because the classes were accelerated and I knew there would be jobs once I finished,” said Miranda.
