Congratulations on your admittance to George Mason University! If you’re looking for a university with an awesome location, outstanding academic programs, and many ways to get involved, you’ve found the right place! Since our campus is such a short distance to the nation’s capitol, Washington, D.C. truly can be your playground. But, if you also want the traditional campus feel, we have that too. As the second largest residential university in Virginia, you’ll find your “home away from home” here at Mason.
So what are the next steps in becoming a George Mason Patriot?
