George Mason university is a big diverse school, the student environment is very mature, fun, and professional. The professors are very smart and are open books when you have questions, there are always activities and clubs going on throughout the week so you have many opportunities to meet new people. The campuses are big but not too overwhelming, this university offers so much to help you better yourself as a student and a person.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is alright, I often say the only redeeming quality is the great college of art. The teachers are my favorite part, the students lack a little bit and do not challenge me. It is a commuter school, so there is not much life on campus after hours or over the weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe this school unifies a certain type of person: These students are committed to their goals and they see George Mason for what college is intended to be: a stepping stone to a career that you can enjoy. In this vein, the people that flock to George Mason make meaningful relationships and use these networks to set themselves up for a productive career and an overall happy life. With this attitude, there are certainly pros and cons; however I believe that this focus on the future only benefits Mason's students and prepares them for the workforce in a unique way that you will not easily find elsewhere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Some would argue that because George Mason is a commuter school it loses out on being a close-knit community but this fact is what allows Mason to expand so far past its boundaries and reach a diverse group of students. The breadth of interests on campus is huge and if you go looking you will definitely find your place. In addition to the people, George Mason University is a college dedicated to giving its students a real-world education. At Mason, the knowledge you gain in class is presented in a manner meant to leverage you into the career field you want. As such internships, research, and job opportunities are the air we breathe here in Fairfax.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Mason University is your typical, too large college. It's definitely not like the stereotypical college movies, where there's a guy playing guitar under a tree or a fraternity hazing some freshmen. Everyone here mostly keeps to themselves, but I don't see this place as more than another public learning institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that attending this college has been my best choice due to multiple reasons such as it is great for business majors because after all this is a school of business, it is convenient to travel back and forth from home, along with great education from professors to assist students to achieve their degree with better understanding the concepts.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it's a very good mix of being suburban enough to not be overcrowded and polluted like a city college but close enough to Washington DC to get the benefits of a city life. I like that it is safe and is a very innovative and open-minded campus of ambitious individuals. I appreciate the faculty and staff, because you get the sense that they love to work here specifically, and tend to commit to their students fully. More than anything, I appreciate the diversity that Mason embraces and encourages inclusion of all backgrounds.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Mason University like most colleges and universities has its faults. However, I always see students studying together, helping each other, getting involved with extracurricular activities, and creating an overall warm atmosphere to come to everyday. The professors are there to help and if you can't make it to their office hours they have student assistants that are available to help as well. George Mason is very diverse and you are bound to find someone with different ideas than yours. I feel like I have found a second home at Mason and would recommend it as an option if it fits your aspirations for the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What brought be to this school was the location of the campus and the beauty of the campus. The school is nearby D.C. where there are all sorts of different things to do. The school provides shuttles to different places such as to the metro, to different shopping centers, a theater, and a Mall. The campus has forested areas surrounding it and there are many flowers around campus. There are several walking trails and nature areas on and around campus. It was nice when I first got here, but then the school started several campus wide construction projects. All the construction takes away from the beauty of the campus, and causes traffic problems. The construction also makes it harder to get to class. Most of the construction wont be done until I graduate in 2022. The food here has also gotten worse each semester that I've been here. The dining halls are low staffed and they don't serve a large enough variety of foods. Sometimes the food is under-cooked, and then sometimes its burnt. The school prides itself in the amount of clubs and organizations. There is a large variety of groups that you can join including religious groups, sport clubs, gaming clubs, and clubs for different hobbies. The professors that I have had so far have all been nice, and cared about their students. They always provide office hours in case you have questions. You can email them after office hours. They always make sure to inform their students if there is no class or if they will be late. If you have questions about homework or something about the class, the professor or one of the teacher assistants will help you right away. Overall I think this is a good university to attend. Just make sure to eat somewhere else.
