Most administrative offices and services of the College of Southern Maryland will be unavailable the afternoon of Friday, Sept. 30, as faculty and administration gather for the college's seventh annual All-College Convocation on the La Plata Campus.
The Leonardtown and Prince Frederick campuses will close at 11 a.m. and the La Plata Campus will close at 11:45 a.m.
The fitness centers and pools will operate on normal schedules. For classes scheduled after 11 a.m., students should check with their individual instructors. Essential services will operate on a normal schedule.
The Connections Literary Series and the CSM Cause Theatre performance of “Benched” will take place as scheduled.
The convocation will bring together faculty and staff as one college to collaborate and celebrate one of the college's core values, respect. As part of that value, staff and faculty are working together to collect jars of peanut butter that will be donated to food pantries in Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties.
During the All-College Convocation, online access will be available at www.csmd.edu and through my.CSMD services. Classes begin for the Fall 10-week session Oct. 3. The seven-week Fall Minisession II will begin Oct. 24.
