  • There are some excellent dorms on campus, and some not so great ones. If you're a freshman, try to avoid President's Park! A lot of new housing opportunities have arisen…

    There are a lot of food options around campus so invest in the debit system and public transportation. Eating on campus is not worth it.

    This is an area I really like. The selection is awesome and the foods are great. I love the fact you have coffees here too. It's a great space for me to hang out in while I have a break between classes. It's so important to have great places to eat while attending colleges and I feel alot more colleges such as NOVA is also going this way instead of cafeteria foods. So much more healthier.

    Plenty of food opportunities on campus, both university sponsored and commercial. Although I don't drink coffee, there is a Starbucks on campus. It is also in the middle of Fairfax so there are many food opportunities just off campus as well. Southside, which is one of the university dining halls, is all you can eat for around $10. ALL YOU CAN EAT!!!

    Food and dining here is actually pretty good. We have a very diverse selection of food for everyone whether you are lactose intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free. There are so many options that you really can't get tired of not having enough options.

    The Subways on campus is the best quality food place on campus, but there are new expansions planned including a chipotle in the near future.

    I haven't started classes yet, can't say anything about it. but from what I saw from my last visit, the dining environment is very clean. and you have a lot of choice when it comes to food .

    Greek life is growing and the saying is, your mason experience will go from 30 to 100 if you join greek life.

    The Greek Life from what I have heard is not as huge here. There is no Greek row. I don't even know where the frat and sorority houses are....

    There are frat parties and sorority parties almost every weekend. From what I've heard, they are always fun and extremely crazy!

    Oh, here's a section, sorry. Anyway, the Greek Life is something I am not particularly interested in, but from what I hear from some, it's amazing depending upon your chosen group.

    Greek life isn't heavily played on at Mason. While there still exists, it's not as amped up as other schools. Though Greek Week is interesting, I got a pretty cool shirt.

    Not as big as frat boys and sorority girls would like, there is no Greek Row and the most active organizations are all community service or academic based.

    Greek Life is always buzzing. Of course there are your typical parties, but the brothers and sisters really look out for other students. It's their mission to keep others safe.

    I'm actually a sorority sister at Mason and I love the community we have here. It allows us to thrive in an environment driven by a want to be leaders, active community members, and good friends. The greek life at Mason may not be gigantic, but its the best decision I've made in college.
