Best university ever with plenty of opportunities!
Tips: Have a strong mindset of studying and have a focus on what you want to achieve in your life. You will feel very welcome to George Mason University and you won't feel lonely since this is a very diverse community. I am very satisfied with my university because it is truly worth attending. I have made a lot of friends and diverse friends which have helped me a lot in my classes.
Likes (Indian Food): A typical day involves attending classes, studying with friends and enjoying the diverse atmosphere on campus. Our college hosts diverse cultural events. So this is what I like the most about my college. Our campus hosts diverse events such as Cultural Fusion Week where we celebrate our cultural diversity and it is the favourite week for every student studying in Mason.
Dislikes (Internships): The faculty is very accessible and approachable in the college of engineering and Computing department. One methodology that I like about this university is that for computer-related courses, we get to do simulations which really helps students tackle real-world problems. My university is very diverse in nationalities. There are faculty from everywhere around the world.

MA in Communication - Batch of 2024
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Think twice as money matters
Tips: The fee is lot higher. The curriculum is so strict for CS department. HC is strictly put in action. State buses are available but not for all distances. Cabs are a lot higher in rate. Part time opportunities are very less. The off-campus accommodation is costlier if it is near campus.
Likes (Quality of faculty): There are some good faculty who pin points everything in detail to provide good understanding. And they support the students. Some faculty they don't even reply to the emails. Assignments are given a lot of course it's in every college but the honor code is strictly implemented.
Dislikes (Value for money): I don't think pouring so much money for my tuition fee is worth it. I mean we have many good colleges with reasonable fees or although the fee is higher they provide scholarships. But in this college, there is nothing as such. Anyways it is a reputed college with a strict academic curriculum and in a safe state.

Factors to be considered before attending college.
Tips: The decision to attend university is a major one that calls for serious thought and research. Students should be aware of a number of important aspects that will affect their academic, financial, housing, and personal success before enrolling in college. Understanding the programme requirement and academic standards. Also, know about the campus atmosphere and students must look into placement services and internship opportunities that are related to their coursework.

Very good University with diversity.
Tips: You guys are here to study, focus on that. Start applying for on campus jobs as soon as possible. Start working on your internship from day 1. Time management and focus management are really important to succeed. Take care of your health and make sure you bring basic medication from home.
Likes (Student Life): George Mason University has huge campus with lots of diversity. Everyone from the campus is really helpful and guiding. There will be lot of fun and educational events to attend. University is there to help you with any questions just reach out to them.
Dislikes (Part time work): Very few part time jobs compared to number of students. They have increased the intake so there will be a struggle. Start applying on app called handshake as soon as you get admitted. To manage financial things, part time work is really important. That's why I rated less.
