    The most important skill to develop and cultivate is time management. George Mason University has a lot of activities and events happening both on and off campus. This excitement can be distracting to those who do not know how to manage their time, since it seems like there is always something fun to do on campus. It is important to make a schedule and stick to it by setting time aside to study and to have fun. Another important tip is to talk to your professors. Freshman classes are typically larger than other grade classes, which means it is very easy to get lost or settle into the crowd. It is important to introduce and talk to your professor to help you stand out from others. If your professor can put your face to your name, then they are more likely to help you with assignments, extend deadlines, and write better references.

    Get to know your professors. Attend office hours, go to GTA and TAs for help. Form study groups. Take charge of your education and do whatever it takes to succeed.

    In order to get the full experience of Mason, try to join as many clubs and activities as you can. Also, if you are an out of state student, this will give you something to do because the majority of Mason students are commuters. So, during the weekends, students living on campus have nothing to do, so being involved in activities would be great. Also, some students don't like the fact that we don't have a football game. Fortunately, I'm not a fan of sports so this didn't really bother me, but if you are a football fan this may upset you.

    I would suggest finding out what you want to do at the college, from your major to your life outside of college classes before coming to George Mason. It will help you figure out what kind of person you seek out to be. In addition, the International program that Mason has is just as good as any other college, if not better. The options for you at Mason are endless when it comes down to how you want to live as a student at Mason, so look at your options at Mason, and make the best one suited for you because I am certain that George Mason University will be suitable for your desires and needs.
