Student's reference

“Diversity is off the charts” at GMU, and many students describe their school as “a melting pot.” As one student puts it, “There are so many different nationalities represented, so many stories, so many languages spoken. At the same time, it didn’t take me long to find a good group of friends that were interested in hanging out and just having a good time together.” “The typical GMU student is always busy - between coursework and extracurricular activities we’re very involved on campus and are also into other activities, such as having jobs or internships.”

“Mason students are also politically active and global citizens.” While a majority of students come from Virginia, there are also “students from over 130 countries, so everyone adds their own personal flavor to our student body.” In spite of all these different backgrounds and cultures, “There are many student organizations that successfully create programs and events to unite students.”
