Here at George Mason University a.k.a GMU or Mason, classes are small and the professors are shockingly always available to answer questions by email or in person. 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. I learned so much within my first semester there and was well prepared entering my second semester. My professors were compromising and taught me new ways to study, write papers and do presentations. My strengths were brought out and my so called weaknesses are no longer categorized as...

    Mason is known for having an extremely diverse student body and a large commuter population. The most popular majors here are business and science-related fields (and the attitude towards social sciences and humanities is obvious through the lack of resources and crummy buildings allocated to these majors). Lastly, Mason is not academically rigorous, nor does it have the reputation of being an intellectually stimulating environment.

    There are so many things that I love about this school, from its diversity, to its safety, to its educational program. It's not a party school, and it's easy to find "your people" right off the bat, since it's just such a big school. All in all, I'm a proud member of the Mason Nation and I recommend this school to anyone!
