CSM Ethnic Studies Professor David Palaita joins Robert Handa on Asian Pacific America to discus the development and growth of Pacific Islander courses at CSM and City College of San Francisco.

The San Mateo County Community College District’s program, which invites students to take college courses on district campuses while still enrolled in high school, has become immensely popular.

CSM veterans Justine Evirs and Tiannia Romero speak with G.I. Jobs about the term “military friendly” and what it means to them.

The makerspace at CSM hosted a Salsa and Merengue workshop—a student led session on “making” dance. The space itself has the 3D printers, of course, and the Arduinos, but no technicians or dedicated classrooms.

College of San Mateo and the San Mateo Community College District came into being more than 90 years ago as an outgrowth of the San Mateo Union High School District. Thus began a partnership to serve young adults in our communities.

When Library Director Lorrita Ford started the makerspace she gathered faculty from science, technology, engineering, art and math disciplines to gauge interest. It was then she realized how much expertise and excitement already existed in the community.

Ariana Finato and Yareli Torres from CSM were selected to receive $1,000 from AIFS and $500 from SMCCCD Foundation Study Abroad Scholarship. As part of their scholarship, they will blog about their experiences in Barcelona on a weekly basis to be shared on the Study Abroad Program’s Facebook page.

While some students stress about which path they may take after high school, guidance counselors are busy reminding them that myriad paths to success remain even if they will not be attending their college or university of choice.

In the spirit of creativity, collaboration and fun, San Mateo is hosting its first ever Innovation Week to highlight the wealth of talent that can be found throughout the Bay Area.

More than 15 hours of downward dogs, meditation, tree poses and a mishmash of other yoga-related activities will commence tomorrow at the College of San Mateo from 6:15 am – 9:30 pm.
