George Mason was my top pick in schools and I stand by it. The Campus is great, The food is fantastic and the professors are there to help. Despite being the largest school in VA my classes have not exceeded 25. Dorms, events and clubs allow you to meet with like minded student. The campus has everything. Its basically a micro-city that is condensed into the heart of fairfax. Limited housing though but there are great apartments in fairfax Buildings are modern and a bit drab but the interweaving woods, creeks and Mason pond give it a welcoming look. The shuttle system is fantastic! Mason to Metro allows you to visit DC's clubs on friday nights. Big greek life on campus. If your into joining a sorority or fraternity mason provides. Frat parties here are incredible and have shuttle services (pledges). Absolutely no need to worry about safety. There is a full fledge police force as well as student "Police Cadets." Mason offers constant internships opportunities! Im a history major and I get probably 7 emails a week containing History based employment or internship info. There are always fun events. The Patriot Center (our b-ball stadium) is big enough to host acts such as Keisha, LMFAO, Rise against and Sound garden (past performers). Wish there was a football program but patriots are an up and coming NCAA basketball team. lots of school spirit at this school. Students seem focused but not stressed. All in all It's laid back but still a great working environment.
