Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

I was an off-campus student, so I was not always there. However, there were many helpful staff here. I never had trouble getting help when I needed it. The professors were helpful and friendly. What I like about GMU was its proximity to Washington DC. The location of the college gave students an endless amount of possibilities to prosper and engage with their community. The diversity of GMU made everyone feel included. There were so many options on campus that provide multiple different opportunities for students to get involved and find something everyone can be interested in. The campus was busy and beautiful without being too spread out which could make it harder to get around fast. The performance art center also offered a great variety of shows, musicals, and plays. It was great that students can get a free or discounted tickets for some of the shows.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2019

I think the overall grade of the university itself is a 3/5. The specific program I went through however, forensic science, deserves a 5/5. The forensic science department at George Mason University is out standing. The professors are real world working adults who have had their experience working in the field (mostly government) and get to share their knowledge and experience with their students through their teaching. The program is very straight forward about their expectations and works with you if a problem ever arises. Their curriculum really prepares you for the real world. As for George Mason University itself, don't come here. This university nickels and dimes their students to death and over charges for everything. Everything here is so expensive and unnecessary. The food is terrible, certain departments lost their accreditation, and most professors need to be fired. The university cares more about its image and how it portrays to people than how your experience will be on this campus. They do not listen to people's opinion, they do not have most resources they say they do when compared to other universities. It is the biggest scam.

Degree: Management Information Systems and Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2008

If I could give this place zero starts I would. If you left this place and want to come back do so within 10 years or less as if you are 10 years and one day you are out of luck. They will accept the general courses but any classes that is a core course for your major will have to be taken again. So all the time and money that you had spend to get your degree is gone. In my case I had two classes left to finish but now I have to retake two years of classes if I want to get my degree from them. Right now I am looking for a school which will take all my previous work and credits so I can get my degree with out spending and paraphrasing john steward the commodity that I dont have which is time.

George Mason was a wonderful university dedicated to helping its students succeed. It prepared me well for my future and I hope to pay my respects and gratitude to the school once I am a professional. I expect to be a exemplary student at Baylor university as well.

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2015

George Mason University was a great experience for me. The sports management program does great at touching every different aspect of what that management looks like. Whether it is through marketing, operations, hospitality, or journalism. They do a great job of combining class room experience with practical experience and by requiring an internship before graduating it helps confirm that you are doing what you are interested in.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2006

GMU is a fine university. At the time they did not offer a program in broadcast journalism, so I earned my bachelors degree in Communications with an emphasis in Media Productions. Three years after graduating, I became a full-time News Reporter for WHAG an NBC affiliate in Hagerstown, MD.

Degree: Political Science and Government, General
Graduation Year: 2018

George Mason University is a wonderful academic institution that offers a wide array of opportunities to its students. I was fortunate to study abroad, be part of the Army ROTC program, present and conduct research, and be apart of various organizations on campus.
