of the comments I've read on here are just amazingly
blown out of proportion.
Mason's academics are good, better
than a lot of other colleges. With only being a
35 or so year old University, what more could you
ask for? Their academics are better than plenty of universities
who've been around for over 100 years (examples: FSU, WVU,
and others). Sure, these are party schools, but did you
*really* go to college just to party? If you did,
you're stupid. Simple as that.
I've never had a problem
with Mason's social life. I knew that if I went
to a huge party school, the parties would get old
and then I'd be bored. At Mason I can still
find a big party, yet find other things to do
when I want to. For example, there are plenty of
bars to go to. Most people leaving comments that the
social life is horrible must not get out much, as
I have found it quite easy to find a big
party (100+ people) at least once every weekend, which I'm
perfectly content with. To me, this allows the parties to
not get as boring as quickly as it's not “the
only thing to do”
I have no complaints.
