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...

    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.

    George Mason University is a school filled with opportunities from the many activities to take part in on campus to the extensive list of study abroad opportunities presented to students every semester. This school also has many dining areas that provide an array of different food options. Each dining hall never serves the same meals and are staffed by an excellent group of individuals who make sure you enjoy each meal you eat.

    George Mason University is a GREAT school! With it being so close to my home, I am able to save money and live off campus. The campus itself is easy to figure out, with legible maps that can guide you to whatever your destination may be. George Mason has many resources available for students including writing and reading centers, tutor centers, and even counselors who will see you free of charge, should you need to talk to someone. Advisers are available by appointment, unless they state they are open for walk ins. The process of scheduling an appointment is online, so you only need to click a few times and you're good to go! They're very helpful and will guide you to the best path to finish your educational goals. Traffic can sometimes be rough because of the Eagle Bank Arena and the amount of events that are held there. Parking is a little expensive, but they also have parking garages and a pay-by-the-day parking options in the general parking lot. I would most definitely recommend this school to anyone! Coming here was a great choice! Go Patriots!

    George Mason University was my second choice school, but I'm so glad I made the decision to go here. I love my peers, my friends, and the campus. The saying at GMU is When you're here, you're home, and even though I've only been here for about four months, it couldn't be more true.
