    GMU is one of the largest colleges on the East Coast. I am happy that I have a chance to attend such a great and innovative college. The Fairfax campus is fantastic and has plenty of resources to learn and develop.

    A really nice campus, that has a lot of easy access and parking spaces. Once you figure out the layout, everything is pretty connected, and the buildings are in pretty good condition.

    It truly has a diverse student body along with many choices for extracurricular activities and organizations to join. The University as a whole is very welcoming to its new students & has tons of programs to offer for majors, minors, and accelerated for those who want to get through the system fast. There's also a great feeling of community and the dorms are of great quality and give you 'another home' away from home.

    George Mason is beautifully diverse, in people and in opportunity. The campus is beautiful and welcoming but be sure to realize that in diversity comes opinion. You will find your niche but realize others do not share the same views as you, understand you cannot agree with everyone.
