College of Southern Maryland Purchases Site for New Campus

As reported in Southern Maryland News Online, the College of Southern Maryland has completed the purchase of 74 acres of land in Hughesville as the site for its new regional campus, which will include specialized offerings and programs to serve the region in a more cost-effective and convenient way, according to a college news release.

“We serve Southern Maryland with a full-service campus in each of our counties, and we try to deliver a full range of academic programs and services. However, there are some programs that are too expensive to replicate on more than one campus, such as our trades programs and nursing and allied health. It makes much more sense to centralize these programs so residents of all three counties can take full advantage of them. This will allow us to operate in a very cost-effective manner, while being more conveniently located,” CSM President Brad Gottfried said in the release.

The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) is a regional college serving Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties.
