What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school in terms of academics. It is a large school, but remember: most of the kids here commute so if you like your weekends quiet, this is definitely the place to be. Parties are easy to find as long as you're active about wanting to go. The academics here are top notch, the professors really work you and are here to help you absorb the knowledge and apply it to real life. They hold decent office hours and are always welcome to you coming in. Just be wary of advising, try to plan your schedule yourself while following the guidelines. Their definitions of your schedule are kind of confusing and may bring you some stress.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has honestly grown on me as a second home. The people here are great ,the instructors are really cool, and my overall college experience couldn't be any better. It's so diverse, some people I meet share some common things with me, but others are out of this world which blows my mind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking to get away from your parents, but still want to be pretty close then this is your campus. The campus is relativity large, but it’s small enough that you feel like you are in your own community. Students can be seen walking around campus to get to class, to do fun activities, or get a quick bite to eat. Right now, as of 2019, they are starting to remodel the campus, so you might run into a lot of construction. The usual paths you would take aren’t straight forward as before, but other than that you will make your own paths to get to where you want to go quickly. The campus has a fun spirit about it with a great pep band called the Green Machine which usually plays with the many sports events we have. And if you want live plays the theatre students usually have them around too. Since we also have the Eagle Bank Arena, there are a lot of outside performers and events that usually make the night parking crowded. If you have a night class it would be wise to leave before the event is over, so you don’t get stuck in the traffic. The classes here are fun and so diverse, you wouldn’t be surprised if you stick around for just them. Course it would be wise to do your classes for your major and sprinkle the fun classes in between, so you won’t get too overwelled. But if that happens a lot of the professors and their assistants can help you catch up. There are also other programs, like the writing center, to help you out too. Once your brain is filled with knowledge you can chill at the different eateries. There are mess halls, like South Side, to do buffets or find name brand locations usually in the Johnson Center or around the campus if you want to try something you know well. All in all, George Mason is a campus you could love if you give it a try.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Mason I a wonderful school. They are currently under construction which causes some problems with facilities and movement throughout campus. The academics is very important in this university and professors make their students a priority. Food is either very good or very bad, there's no in between. Overall, I have had a wonderful time here at Mason and I wouldn't trade my experience for any other!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The amount of diversity present makes it such an appropriate school for those who crave a degree in liberal arts but there are also some strong science departments (which is a career path I'm more interested) but the culture is very inviting making it a good option and highly affordable which increases the appeal making it a good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. The location is amazing for anyone doing anything politically related. Even though its near the city, the campus is surrounded by trees allowing it to feel a little more like the traditional college campus. Old town Fairfax is in walking distance of campus and has a ton of cute study spots.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Mason is one of the best school to have transition into after a community college. As it is a huge school, it is very diverse and very welcoming. Some class departments are known to have the worse teachers and that is something they have to look into. But for an overall opinion it is a great option for commuters and students from out of state.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Mason is a very good school. Whether it be the diverse campus, or the helpful professors; I would recommend others. One thing I like about Mason is that it is an hour away from my house, so I can easily commute. Overall, GMU is a very good school, and gradually they are upgrading their buildings and soon it will be the most wanted school in the DMV area.

As a current freshman I'm very impressed and happy attending GMU! The academic and professors are great, and they're always available. I love the overall environment of the campus as well, and made many great friends. It's truly a home away from home!
