    If I had any tips for prospective students, it would be to not make a decision until you visit. I wasn't really considering Mason until my mom made me apply and I got in. Since I got in, she made me visit the campus and I fell in love with it. I loved the layout of the campus and how beautiful it was. Additionally I thought the equipment in the Engineering building was good for hands on work which played a huge part in my decisions of where I wanted to go. My main tip would be to visit the campus, see how you like it, and tour around the building of your major to see if it would be a good fit for you.

    The best thing to do before classes start is learn the name and location of each building as well as remember that the Johnson Center is the center of the campus. As an incoming student, you will want to find clubs/teams that best suit you in order to get the most out of the campus. Lastly, you will want to make sure to stay alert about the different events that occur throughout campus and keep up the Mason spirit!

    Don't come unless you really want the best education you can get for the price. This is NoVa we're talking about, so it's expensive. All the scholarship and student loan applications are not worth it if you're just coming to school to discover who you are or have a little fun. If you're unsure about your education, go to NVCC first, because it's a much cheaper option and it is easy to transfer those credits to Mason or another school in the DC area.

    This school is a great school, however it's definitely a commuter school. Out of the 30,000 something students who attend, only 6,000 or so live on campus. Arrive early so you can get parking. Look up your professors on rate my professor or on the school's professor ratings online before you register for a class. Reviews give helpful tips of what that teacher is like and how they teach.
