First - In response to the guy transferring to Northeastern - Ummm I think that is a flame post. Given it was ranked as one of the ugliest campuses in the nation - I think he will be disapointed in his on-campus experience as well as their athletics.

I am a recent alumni and have to say some of the negative posts seem to focus on the social life - its obvious they are either bitter people who can't get a long or are a-social.

I was at Mason during its transition from a commuter campus to having one of the larger on-campus populations in Virginia. We have more students living on campus than JMU, Richmond, or William and Mary. The basketball games and even the club football team games are packed consistently. There are a variety of clubs, fraternities/sororities that people can join as well as a wealth of entertainment and facilities on campus.

Mason academic programs are outstanding as even some of the negative posts attest to. I would suggest one visit the campus and take a look for yourself, speak with some of the professors and tour surrounding Fairfax city. You can also see how easy it is to get a CUE bus on campus - go to the metro - and explore downtown DC without getting in a car.

Mason's 680 acre campus is developing and growing. There are brand new dorms that put some condos to shame. The President's Park dorms are the best freshmen dorms to live in and it gets wild there at night.

As with any college - you get out what you put in.

Mason is an excellent choice.
