    Mason has a good reputation and amazing Professors, which is what it should be being so close to so many opportunities.

    I took summer classes here as a visiting student and it is so unorganized. It is quite diverse, nice that its pretty close to DC. There have been a lot of renovations going on so nice classrooms and buildings have been growing. The food choices aren't the best and sometimes pricey. There are two starbucks' and a new panera that's opening soon! ...Continue reading

    Good school in all. Very little happens on or around campus thanks to be located in the middle of Rich People County, USA. It is also the largest in Virginia and it shows. School often cares more about profits than education. Book store completely gouges on textbook sales. Diversity is great, but shouldn't be the sole focus. Especially in the busier buildings. Logging on with mobile devices is difficult. The connection often drops and I have to reconnect. ...Continue reading

    I'm going to miss Mason. Best decision of my life. We have people of every race, orientation, and hold no prejudice against what some people would call limitations. This is a place of acceptance and mindfulness. G M U WHAAAATTT! With Mason you get what you put into it. I have been offered excellent job/ internship opportunities through Mason, I have traveled the world through study abroad, and I have made great friends. The school is also very close to DC, which makes it even better! The food is alright, the internet is awful. ...Continue reading

    GMU doesn't provide enough classes to complete your degree on time and you don't have an opportunity to choose a professor with decent ratings. I've enrolled in three classes because all of the computer science classes I actually need for a degree are closed. Did anyone bother to tell me this before I enrolled? No. I asked the department about this and it was suggested that I change majors. I am looking to transfer asap. ...Continue reading

    If you want to do pre-med I HIGHLY recommend you don't come to mason. They are adding in food places which is nice. Most students live off campus so not a lot of night life here. Really good school for people who are already in a job and working to a degree. A lot of resources like a place to help you write papers. I've never even seen a club here, and the internet is TERRIBLE!! Go networks to DC. ...Continue reading

    Mason has its strengths, but in the form of a master of one trade. One thing I do not like is the slow shuttle service. On weekends I often go to DC but the shuttles would come on every hour. Expect sitting outside waiting for the shuttle to come get you from the metro stop. Also with the Gunston Bus. Really inconvenient if you live on campus without a car. so thats a plus. ...Continue reading

    Having a campus near D.C. is the best. I really like it here. Lots of events on campus. Not too many parties, but enough so that you could find one if you looked. Food is pretty good for campus food too. Einstein's Bagels is the best and the Bistro is pretty good too. Its pretty good overall, but for me it's perfect. The people here make this place all worth it. ...Continue reading

    Went to Mason for my freshman year. Everything is very spread out, so expect to do lots of walking. Professors have been good overall, but the school really needs to eliminate Grad Student Teachers. .I kind of wish I never transferred here. It's diverse and the campus is beautiful, but most of the professors here are a joke and/or you cannot understand them due to their accents or lack of confidence in their own teaching.

    I'm in the nursing program here and it is the absolute worst. The food and housing is awful. I also had a lot of issues with the administrative offices where the people are rude and incompetent. I will be transferring after this semester. If you're looking for clubs, social life and political time wasters, look no further. Expect bureaucracy. Attending Mason is more like working at a corporate job in a bland cubicle- they'll tell you they love you every day, but don't expect any actual help. It's a DIY school. ...Continue reading

    mason isn't that bad tbh. Get used to major construction the next few years, this place is striding into the big leagues. Proximity to DC make it an indespensable resource for Govt. , Contractors, and non-profits in the area. But it's definitely possible to make friends otherwise.

    Great school at being really bad and lot's of opportunity for improvement. You are often forced to take another semester to get that last class that wasn't offered. This also means that you can't start graduate school on time. Are they doing this on purpose or is it just incompetence? GMU is not there to serve students, just take their money. It is a waste and a shame. No one cares. ...Continue reading

    The advisors either know nothing or say nothing. The administration is unrelenting and not helpful. Its like going to school at the IRS with auditors for professors. The advisor is very unpleasant. They do not care about the student, just the money you give them. They only offer some classes during certain semesters. You will have to stay beyond 4 years. It's almost impossible to get academic advising when you need it. You have to make an appointment well in advance and be prepared to wait at least an hour during walk-ins. One of the most frustrating things is parking! The parking permits are so expensive and unless you pay the big bucks you have to park so far from campus. ...Continue reading

    Even though it is a big state school, there are not enough classes to graduate on time for C.S., biochem or chem. After Friday at about 2 pm campus is far from enjoyable.

    I wish they'd fix all the broken stuff (sidewalk, stairs, bathroom, lab equipment, lighting, internet, spirit, morale, crummy teachers)and clean up all the trash before putting up new buildings, oh, but that would make it a better place so no.

Actually received better quality education at the community college I transferred from. Save your money. ...Continue reading

    This school does not offer classes when student need them. They give students very bad advice. They clearly have one interest only, your money.

The professor are mostly fine and eager to help. ...Continue reading

    Don't be so hard on this place. I can't wait to finish this semester and transfer. It's such a commuter school so no one is around on the weekends. It's hard to get your college experience from here. Course content was often insufficient and some professors, despite their qualifications, should not be trying to teach material to first-time learners. Awful experience with this school. Essentially paid for a slip of paper, without providing me with assistance to further my career. ...Continue reading

    Mason was not my first choice as Im originally from Fairfax and didn't want to be so close to home. Although to most people it was a 2nd choice school for them, they always end up saying they can't imagine being anywhere else after being here. Mason's campus is beautiful and Fairfax is fun. There's about as many other things to do on campus. Also, the people here are very nice and unique, but that's what makes it fun also. ...Continue reading

    George Mason is located near Washington D.C., so if you're not from the area, you will love it. The professors are all very knowledgeable and most of them love what they do.

    Check out of the trash throughout the woods behind the pool. They care about their own ivory tower. I'm not sure about other majors but do some real digging. With such few course, you also don't have much choice to pick a prof with decent reviews. Find somewhere else. ...Continue reading

    I did my full undergrad and graduate school at mason, with a small break between. Construction sites and chalk messages are everywhere. I found it hard to relate to any of my peers. Traffic to and from is a pain. The professors are what make this university thrive. Class times are awkward. Glad to leave ? ...Continue reading

    Mason really does look exactly like the pictures online! It is a commuter school and you can feel that on the weekends. ...Continue reading

    This school does not offer classes when student need them. They give students very bad advice. They clearly have one interest only, your money. They do not tell you all of the facts, like you can take a course at another school and transfer the credit. They tell you no but do not tell you to appeal the decision. The professor are mostly fine and eager to help. ...Continue reading

    Don't be so hard on this place. I can't wait to finish this semester and transfer. It's such a commuter school so no one is around on the weekends. It's hard to get your college experience from here. Course content was often insufficient and some professors, despite their qualifications, should not be trying to teach material to first-time learners. Awful experience with this school. Essentially paid for a slip of paper, without providing me with assistance to further my career. ...Continue reading

    Mason was not my first choice as Im originally from Fairfax and didn't want to be so close to home. Although to most people it was a 2nd choice school for them, they always end up saying they can't imagine being anywhere else after being here. Mason's campus is beautiful and Fairfax is fun. There's about as many other things to do on campus. Also, the people here are very nice and unique, but that's what makes it fun also. ...Continue reading

    George Mason is located near Washington D.C., so if you're not from the area, you will love it. The professors are all very knowledgeable and most of them love what they do. Mason's claim to fame would be the connections you make, that help you get jobs. Their two downfalls are the Internet and the parking. To be expected of a large university. ...Continue reading

    I transferred to GMU from NVCC. WiFi is horrible in the main areas. ...Continue reading

    could, and should be way better for the money, especially the food. But, if you decide not to go greek, good luck getting involved and meeting people. People are rude. Professors and advisors don't care about you. I went in and said I couldn't decide to transfer or not and they just handed me the dis-enrollment papers. ...Continue reading
