"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."

"George Mason is a giant money factor that doesn't care about students so much as their wallets. I was lucky enough to be in the College of Visual and Performing Arts which cares a lot more than the university as a whole."
