Our spring gala is both a fundraiser and an opportunity to celebrate the enormous personal, academic, and professional efforts and accomplishment of scholars, parents, and the CSS community. At the gala we recognize Black and Latino males in the external community who have an exemplary history of distinction through service in their professional fields.
Game nights provide the opportunity for scholar brothers to unwind from their rigorous studies and celebrate birthdays with food, cake, video games, and board games.
At our monthly meetings, parents can learn about the progress of the CSS community, hear what and how their children are doing, and recognize specific achievements of scholars. Meetings also include a potluck meal to which parents are invited to contribute.
Scholars bond while working out at the Epply Recreation Center where they may teach each other different workout methods, play basketball together, or play other sports and games as available.
Scholars get together to create and listen to music.
Registration Resource Referral
Scholars provide feedback about professors and courses to give fellow scholars insights into teaching styles and course offerings at the University of Maryland. Advisors are available to review scholar schedules and provide guidance on creating a healthy and manageable workload.
Scholars or team leaders who excelled in an academic course volunteer their services to facilitate review sessions in courses that other scholars are experiencing academic challenges and where there is a high demand for tutoring. The review sessions provide an overview of course material, exams, quizzes, and homework.
