Degree: Art History
Graduation Year: 2018

I selected GMU based on the support they claimed to provide and their Programs. They paint a rosy picture at their open house. I am an out of state student. Tuition is high! Basically their is no support for students. I was undeclared in my freshman year. They have limited advisors and they had little time to help me. I had two professors that were truly willing to help me when I needed it. The one thing you can count on with GMU is they will charge you for everything. Parking passes are ridiculously expensive. In my second year the tuition increase was ridiculous! I guess they need to pay for the faculties pensions some how. The professors are difficult to understand. I dropped several courses as I couldn't understand them. I made some great friends and I feel safe on the campus. I would not recommend GMU. They don't offer value for the education they provide

Degree: Art History

I was an undeclared major when I joined and the guidance counselor couldn't make time for me. During the intro visit they sold me and my parents on the support they provided students. I am an out of state student. There is no support. Many of the professors are difficult to understand, and don't provide the time when you need help. I made great friends but I would not recommend GMU!!!

Degree: Marketing

If you are looking for a school that prepares you for the real world and a degree that employers value, this is a great school. If you're a kid looking for a "college community atmosphere" this school may not suffice. The school spends a lot of money updating itself, which is great for future students. When employers see I went to GMU, they really take notice. I would recommend GMU to any friend or family member.

George Mason is a commuter school. So they definitely cater to commuters when it comes to class times, food availability, and parking. Though parking can be expensive and it sometimes seems like there's not enough.

Honestly, college is a waste. After you graduate high school, take some time and enjoy your life before deciding to go to college. I am not saying you won't enjoy your life while in college, but go out and do things while you are young. College can wait, it will always be there. However, you are only young once.

GMU is a large, diverse school in a great location. Its proximity to DC means that there are lots of internship and job opportunities (for both during and after college), as well as professors who are at the tops of their fields and offer fantastic networking. GMU isn't your typical small-town college campus - you have on-campus housing, but you also have a ton of off-campus options, and there is a lot to do nearby since it's in a suburban location outside of a major city. The university has continued to grow (both in size and in reputation) - this means that degrees earned there are increasing in value. When I say that I went to GMU, people recognize the name and are impressed. Overall, I couldn't have made a better choice.

GMU was great for grad school but I probably wouldn't like it for undergrad since it was more of a commuter school.
