    For any off-campus student commuting, I would try to take courses early in the morning, take no more than 3 classes a day, and finish in the afternoon. The reason is the parking. Parking becomes really difficult to find after 10 am.

    definitely get involved. greek life is an awesome way to get involved; most greeks here do not fit the typical stereotype. it's a close knit community. there are a ton of opportunities on campus and also in the area. dc is only a short metro ride away - take advantage of that! if you don't absolutely need a car, don't bring one because the parking prices are very high. be sure to keep up with your classes and do your own research about your schedule, because the advisers sometimes aren't a lot of help. ratemyprofessor, while a useful website, doesn't always have accurate reviews. be careful about your professors. however, gmu is what you make of it, so as long as you get involved and work hard, you'll have a good time.

    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.
