Someone who is looking for diversity and is comfortable with the the campus. If you are unsure of what you want to be when you "grow up" this is a good place to come and dabble because it offers classes in just about everything.

Matthew

A person attending GMU as an undergraduate should wish to study business, economics, criminal justice, policitical science, or english. If they are low on money but too intelligent for a community college, GMU offers great value for the education it delivers. The person must be outgoing and have initiative to take advantage of all GMU has to offer. Otherwise they will be bored and friendless. Its proximity to Washington, DC, Greek life, volunteer opportunities, ROTC program, student groups based on religion, major, or interests all offer a plethora of opportunities.

Someone who likes being near a city but not right in the middle of it. This school is good for people who value diversity and who enjoy a variety of different activities, clubs, classes, views, and other aspects of life. This school is good for those who like to party but also for those who don't. It is academically challenging but school does not take over your life here. It's a great school.

Mason has excellent undergraduate and graduate programs. The mojority of students, however, are ages 17-26, and come from all over the United States and the world. We have one of the most diverse campuses with one of the largest Muslim populations in the U.S. There are several English, Science, Business, Government, and Arts majors. People who go to Mason enjoy being involved in campus activites, being social, and are people who are dedicated to learning. While many students still commute to Mason, the school is making progress to end this reputation and change the housing recquirements for freshmen.

If you are into trying something new or if you want a change, then George Mason is the place for you. You cannot be a shy person or someone who is confortable with smaller class sizes. Most class sizes are very large with like 50 to 60 students.

Danbee

A dedicated person, someone who's looking for diversity, opportunities, and fun. Being in the center of Fairfax and so close to D.C we definitely have more opportunities than other universities do. But, because we are a communter school it also requires a lot of time management and goal setting to get the job done. Mason is such a diverse school as well, who are open to all ideas and a real life experience to what the real job world would be like. And a place where many extracurricular activies and clubs are available for every student.

Elsy

Whoever attends this school should be very self-motivated and hardworking. There aren't many restrictions for students living on campus, such as myself; especially not for incoming freshmen. There is no curfew or other regulations like that. Therefore, a lot of the pressure is on the individual. It is a lot of responsibility at once. So strong-willed individuals with a good support system should attend.
