What the students are saying about:

George Mason University

George Mason University

“As a Government & International Politics major, being so close to the largest political arena in the country was a priority in choosing where to go to college,” said one happy George Mason student, reveling in his college’s location only twenty minutes away from the heart of DC. “Students here are very politically aware and active," and “we love the guest speakers” from all sides of the political spectrum who frequently make their way onto campus. “The most unique class at Mason was Political Journalism. The class was held in a television studio in Innovation Hall, and we were able to have guest lecturers, via satellite, that included Helen Thomas and Walter Cronkite.” Students put their political knowledge to use across campus, where “there is an even distribution of Democrats, Republicans, etc.” But Libertarians should take note - students report “there are more Libertarians that go to Mason than any other college in Virginia.”
