I went here because it was the best school that I was able to get into. I also made it into Radford and that would have been by far a much better choice. Despite what the school claims, GMU IS DEFINATELY a commuter school. There is only one big event the entire year, and that is Mason Day which has been going downhill fast in the last few years. The rest of the time there is never anything to do on campus. Off campus, well if you want to do anything but sit around at home, well you had better join a frat because otherwise there is almost no hope of finding a party or anything, unless you are into death metal then there is a club a couple miles away called jaxx. There are a few bars near campus, but this is Fairfax so unless you are of age there is no chance of getting in. GMU has its own police force, litterally. It has been said that they are state police in training because there is not one good man/woman on their force. they are all complete assholes looking for a power trip. Not only that but they do not even try to stop any real crime, just two days ago a woman was attacked at gunpoint by two men in the middle of campus at 10 at night. There is also a member of the blood's from maryland living in one of the freshmen dorms right now because his girlfriend goes here not him, and they have yet to do anything about that. Many of the Professors can barely speak english. Avoid this place unless you really have no other place to turn. Mason is only a little step up from NOVA.
