    Get to know your professors. Attend office hours, go to GTA and TAs for help. Form study groups. Take charge of your education and do whatever it takes to succeed.

    In order to get the full experience of Mason, try to join as many clubs and activities as you can. Also, if you are an out of state student, this will give you something to do because the majority of Mason students are commuters. So, during the weekends, students living on campus have nothing to do, so being involved in activities would be great. Also, some students don't like the fact that we don't have a football game. Fortunately, I'm not a fan of sports so this didn't really bother me, but if you are a football fan this may upset you.

    I would suggest finding out what you want to do at the college, from your major to your life outside of college classes before coming to George Mason. It will help you figure out what kind of person you seek out to be. In addition, the International program that Mason has is just as good as any other college, if not better. The options for you at Mason are endless when it comes down to how you want to live as a student at Mason, so look at your options at Mason, and make the best one suited for you because I am certain that George Mason University will be suitable for your desires and needs.

    A good school to attend if you are in state. If you are looking for the stereotypical college experience with a ton of partying and wild nights, this isnt really the school. The town is not college friendly but full a wealthy people who would prefer not having a college in its town.

    Do not base your class schedule around ratemyprofessor.com; doing assignments on time, studying 20 hours a week, and not being afraid to get help is what it takes to succeed at George Mason. If you fail a course, do not make excuses that the professor did not do his or her job - there will always be students that prove that theory wrong, and it is not the end of the world. Pick yourself up and try again. Do thorough research of all the majors available to you and even graduate programs you might want. You don't want to invest three years into a degree and than find out that wonderful graduate program only accepts science degrees or humanities degrees, etc.. If you're transferring in, double and triple-check on your transfer credits; I could have avoided physics 1 and 2 and cell biology and applied that money elsewhere.
