Lecture halls are usually semi-big but then they are divided into Labs where you are able to get one on one assistance with your instructors.

    GMU is in a great location, but it's definitely a suburban commuter school. There are tons of opportunities for not a lot of tuition. As a huge school, you can also pick professors, classes and schedules because there are a ton of options.

    When first stepping on Mason campus you could feel it was going to be easy to make friends and helpful staff. My impression of orientation was a very memorable one with the feeling of safety and the fact college was truly going to be fun. Mason is very clean and secure place. I feel very comfortable being here through the help of friends and staff. It is the best place to be.

    George Mason is awesome. I am a commuter student, which a lot of students here are, and I just love it. The staff here is great and I have yet to have a problem with any rude teachers. Great school!!!

    George Mason University is an excellent school for a range of careers including government, criminology, law, and history. It is currently undergoing a change from a commuter only school to greatly expanding its on campus population. Furthermore, its proximity to DC is an excellent opportunity for students wishing to obtain jobs or internships.
