| Terrific education overall! Left the university at a great time and found a great job in the DC Metropolitan area with a sound salary. Top professors in the college of science. Physics major, math minor.|
Overall, you can say that meeting students of all backgrounds is the most amazing aspect. Many different outgoing personalities, school spirit is strong, especially basketball season. student clubs are available and pretty heavy during the first 2 months.After the first 2 years, I met a lot of friends on campus and finally got to move into the nicer apartment complexes. I have not been on campus in a while, but have heard there is a lot of new buildings. Highly recommend.

| Very good university so far. Smart students and professors, who help you with questions that you have problems with. Met a lot of friends so far, building relationships.|
The campus is well kept. Johnson Center is where its at. Thinking of switching majors from english to accounting. Heard good things about it.Only negative is that the winters are cold and a lot of snow. Had like 2 feet this year.

| Hi! I have to agree with the poster below that the university has gotten a bad rap because there is a community college near it. I found out that a lot of the kids that went to that NOVA transferred to Virginia Tech, UVA and some of the other schools, but because Mason is located in northern va, they forget that kids also transfer to other schools like VT. I'd also have to agree that the courses are top notch and the university is under-rated. This school is getting ready to blow up over the next few years, so try to get in before they make the SAT score requirement extremely competitive. The university is in a "growth" stage like many of the older universities like VT and UVA were 20-30 years ago, which is why you want to hurry up and get in and get a good deal before everything skyrockets in price, especially since its close to the DC area. |
On another plus side, its only 15 min from DC where the nightlife is. It's perfect because fairfax is safe, no crime and nice environment. Then when you want to go to parties or explore museums or DC, its only 15 in away.
Also, they have a lot of jobs and connections in the alumni base. You can do an part-time internship in tysons corner va or in the DC area to get experience and land a good job, vs having to go to a rural university and do internships over the summer and waste your summer.- sports is pretty fun too. Wear gold and go to the basketball games, run back to the dorm and celebrate when the games are over or go out with your friends.
