    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.

    Campus is small, but the buildings are spread out, so be prepared to walk (depending on your dorm location, that is) or even bring a bike! Make sure to study hard for finals, because like at any school, Finals Week is stressful and demanding. If you are vegetarian or vegan, BRING LOTS OF SNACKS! The only dining hall that caters to either one well is Southside, and if you end living in President's Park like me, it can be quite a walk there some days just to eat a meal. Ike's is not very good at all with meeting the needs of these diets, but they do serve veggie burgers and the fries are vegan (same with Southside fries). If you aren't vegetarian or vegan, it's still advisable to bring snacks, but you can literally eat anything so try to vary up your diet--that way, it won't get too boring.
