Okay I've been at Mason for a year and the student population SUCKS. People are uber cliquish and its high school all over again. Most of the people stick to their own ethnic cliques, talk on their cell phones, and are basically huge snobs. Well that being said, the professors are awsome. So far I've loved every prof I've had, they've been super helpful and if you visit during office hours they're usually willing to give "hints" for exams. I've even had a professor who changed my grade just b/c he thought I was "trying" really hard. So yeah that was great. The parking sucks and so does the food, but if you live in the area, the amount you save on housing by living at home is great. The friendless atmosphere makes you study more, but if you want that tradtitional college experience than go somewhere else. NOVA is a nice place to live, so if you like it then stick around and go to NOVA. I figure you can get drunk and crazy when all your friends come home for the summer.
