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.

    George Mason has created an amazing freshman experience for me on a beautiful campus. GMU's School of Business has a highly motivated & involved faculty and group of advisers who steer you towards your goals. GMU has already begun it's placement steps for me in assisting me with my lifetime career choices.

    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!

    One of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. If you are looking for diversity, this is the right place. It will be your home away from home.

    George Mason University overall is a very big campus. Parking is limited at certain peak hours. People are very nice and friendly toward one another around the campus.

    GMU is primarily a commuter school; however, there has been an increase with those who choose to live on campus. Because of that, there is now a wide range of activities that can be done, both on campus and even off campus. You just have to know how to navigat and find out what's happening where and you'all be sef

    it is what you make it. big student population but a small campus; takes maybe fifteen minutes to get across campus, depending on how fast you walk. bring your own snacks because the dining hall food is awful.
