5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are cadets at almost every cross walk, and there are university police officers on duty to keep our campus safe. We are also located right next to a state police station and also located in a very safe and family friendly community.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are so many different types of courses that are offered at George Mason. The professors really do care for you and take the time to learn everyone's names.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: George Mason is right outside of DC. Internship opportunities are right outside of the doorstep. There are many companies that come to campus to recruit potential interns or even employees.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a commuter, but I have spent alot of time in my friends' dorms, and it is very nice. I have been on many college tours and my school's dorms beat all the dorms I have ever seen.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our school does not have a football team. However, there are other varsity sports like basketball, baseball, and soccer that students enjoy being a part of. And many other students like to attend games and cheer on our school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I can commute so that I don't have to spending a lot of money. My school is actually a pretty good school, and I'm getting good quality education for so much cheaper because of the room and board fee cuts. Everyone at my school is very nice and professors really care about the students. I Love Mason.

Let’s get brutally honest for a minute: Mason’s not for everybody. For students dreaming of wild house parties and a 24-7 drinking fest akin to scenes in “Animal House,” they might be better off at a school with a bigger party reputation than Mason. But just because Mason isn’t what people stereotypically associate with a college experience, doesn’t mean students don’t get a real college experience nonetheless. As one of the most diverse schools in the nation, Mason offers students a unique college experience and plentiful opportunities to get involved in different organizations or groups and meet a lot of different people while doing so. Not to mention the campus’s central location, just 20 minutes outside of Washington D.C., which gives students access to museums, clubs, restaurants, and popular attractions like the monuments. So what if students can’t walk next door and do a keg stand? They have the opportunity to mold their very own college experience around Mason’s numerous clubs, events, and classes.

It might sound a little cliché, but Mason truly offers the best of both worlds. Whether students are into hanging out on campus in the middle of Suburbia, U.S.A., or they want to go into D.C. every night, the University gives them that option. While people are divided on campus issues like parking, the campus social scene, and food options, overall, Mason students are satisfied with the University’s offerings. Of course there’s always room for improvement, and the University’s constant expansion and rally to become a well-respected public institution is always upgrading facilities, programs and services for students.
