What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Mason University is a school with endless opportunities. It thrives off of diversity, its large campus and population and the incredible adventures that await just 18 miles from campus, Washington D.C. Some would criticize the predicament of GMU being a commuter school, however I think it only creates a more diverse and fascinating place that opens the eyes of students and introduces relationships worldwide. In the long run, Mason is perfect for someone who wants to make a change.

I just enrolled this year and attended their orientation. The orientation for both students and family were so welcoming to everyone. They served us breakfast and made sure we got the proper instructions. All the staff from George Mason are prepared to help anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy it and think the campus is beautiful. The dinning halls have average food for a college campus, but are always accessible. The hallways of the dorms have won awards for how clean they are and this makes the place feel more like a second home then a dumpy college dorm.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I fell in love with GMU the moment I stepped on the campus. It felt like home and everyone was so kind and open. I already know few people on campus through GMU's social media or through orientation. I love being close to DC and the internship opportunities are great! There are apps and/or websites students can use to gain that experience. GMU is an extraordinary atmosphere with kindness surrounding it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Mason has welcomed me into their arms and held my hand and watched me blossom. So much support from my close community of educators and classmates and yet a calm and relaxed environment for studying and concentration. I love George Mason, of course, it is hard to pay off, but I am learning with exceptional tools and opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm an incoming student but I'm really excited to start learning and the courses are very strong in the technology area. I just need help financially but the school in my opinion is perfect for me to move forward to achieve my dream. Not only that but the Faculty are very helpful and provide multiple solutions to assist students. The other students as well are very open and kind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Since I began attending school at George Mason I feel as I truly became apart of the Patriot family! I was always shy in high school and stayed to myself, but at George Mason, I felt comfortable enough to try new passions and activities. At GMU there is an array of activities to do so you will never be bored on campus, however, weekends on campus are less jammed and quiet pack due to GMU being a commuter school. If you are looking for a school with high levels of diversity and open to new cultures then George Mason is for you! Mason really prides itself on its diversity and that is shown through many cultural events held on campus. Lastly, yes GMU has its issues from lack of housing to sub-par food, but it is all truly worth it, Overall I think as a second-year student at GMU its a great school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I think back to my days at George Mason University I immediately think about my poor experiences with academic and financial advisors. I was always so apprehensive and terrified to approach them due to their abrasive nature. I knew I would leave feeling worse than I did going in to meet with them. I was a first generation college student doing it blind, and they always seemed so impatient with my and my lack of knowledge. Outside of that, there are many qualities of this university that I admire. The campus is vast and beautiful; the buildings, the dorms, and many dining areas are delightful. There is a very open and welcoming culture among the undergraduate community. I highly recommend joining greek life or one of the many clubs/organizations. Personally, being a part of a sorority truly enriched my undergraduate experiences here at GMU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Mason University is beautiful to walk around in and the atmosphere is very friendly. Lots of great on-campus amenities and students are always smiling. We are very inclusive which adds to that friendly environment/atmosphere as students are always willing to help out other students. Though student life is great, the on-campus housing is garbage. Housing staff doesn't answer students questions and they are always rude. Not professional how they run their department and one of the main reasons why it degrades my overall opinion of George Mason. You pay too much for on-campus housing when you can spent the same amount of money for a nice apartment off-campus (which I'm doing). It's a shame to see a university with so much potential have a housing department that makes students warn others to avoid living on-campus at all costs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the school is quite good. The learning environment is safe and the people there (both students and professors) are overall quite nice. The academic atmosphere is also quite active, when you're in the right group. Overall, I enjoy the school, the people I've met, and the experiences I have had.
