Day Five of All Around the Mason Nation brings us to the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation! This week, we've celebrated each campus and all the features that make them unique parts of the #MasonNation. Check out the All Around the Mason Nation magazine to learn more about Mason’s campuses – https://go.gmu.edu/allaroundmasonnation

Located on the grounds of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia, the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation’s mission is to develop leaders in biodiversity conservation through innovative education, training, and research. The Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation is about an hour’s drive west from Washington, D.C., nestled alongside the 196,000-acre Shenandoah National Park. The facility covers 3,200 acres of forest, grassland, and pasture. Its closed research facility gives you access to science centers focused on rare and endangered species, a variety of ecosystems for field study, and world-renowned scientists working on current conservation challenges.

Samira (Environmental Science, BS) shares her unique experience at SMSC!

"The SMSC program provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience to meet with the front-runners of conservation, engage in highly applicable conservation practice, and network with other professionals. I feel more like I am attending a fun adventure camp than at a textbook-style university semester. The knowledge learned and memories made here are sure to last a lifetime!”

Fun fact: Mason in Loudoun provides learning opportunities for MULTIPLE generations of learners. We offer classes for our traditional undergraduate and graduate students; non-credit classes for our retired generation through Osher Lifelong Learning Institute; and gaming and technology camps through the MGTA summer camp program to our potential future Patriots ranging from elementary school through high school.

The Loudoun site also boasts several local restaurants, such as The Dons’ Woodfire Pizza supporting the Mason community since 2008!

Waleed, founder and head chef: “We’ve been working with University Life during the welcome and finals week to deliver our pizzas to the students and faculty members for more than a decade now. We are eager to resume our services once we can safely do so.”

Did you know that Mason has a campus in South Korea? George Mason first opened its doors to students at the Mason Korea campus in 2014. Since then, each semester students travel to the Songdo campus to take classes and experience all that Mason Korea has to offer. Mason Korea students have the opportunity to finish their degrees in Fairfax. Over 80 students travel each year to take classes at Fairfax.

Yujin Lee (Business, BS) shares her experience at Mason Korea.

"Mason’s Songdo Campus has great accessibility to big cities. The majority of students at the Korean campus are not native English speakers. However, they diligently study the language to transition to the main campus to finish taking courses and to immerse in Mason’s great student diversity. Next time when you sign up for classes, consider taking them at Mason Korea. You will be amazed by the cultural experience it offers to widen your perspectives!”

The Mason Korea experience is truly unique, you are able to learn within close proximity to the capitals of two vibrant nations. Because of this, students have international networking opportunities that truly span the globe. With over 600 diverse students at Mason Korea, representing over 20 countries, students are exposed to diverse cultures and learn to become global leaders in their fields.

Follow George Mason University Korea (@masonkorea) on Facebook and Instagram to learn more about the location!

Day Two of #AllAroundMasonNation features our SciTech Campus in Manassas! Join us this week to celebrate each campus that makes up the #MasonNation. Drop a 💚 to show love for the SciTech campus! Check out the All Around the Mason Nation magazine to learn more – link in bio!

To kick us off, Pranjal will share what makes her SciTech experience unique to her.

“I’m graduating this Spring with my Master’s in Exercise, Fitness and Health Promotion. My passion is reaching out to people and helping them start or progress in their fitness journey. My experience at the SciTech Campus has been unique. I attended classes on campus for my first semester and then COVID hit and we were all attending classes from home. During the short time I was on campus, the vibes I got were always positive and welcoming. The professors are helpful and motivating and the staff around campus are always ready to help if one needs anything. I loved coming to campus and attending classes, going to the Freedom Center, studying at Mercer and having a snack or coffee at Randall’s.”

The SciTech campus is home to over 2,000 students from over 20 different majors, including students from the School of Kinesiology, the School of Systems Biology, GeorgeSquared, and the Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program. At SciTech over 100 graduate students call Beacon Hall home. The SciTech campus, founded in 1997, is in Innovation Park, the largest research business park in Northern Virginia. It's also the site of the Hylton Performing Arts Center, the Freedom Aquatic and Fitness Center, the EDGE team building experiential learning program, and the Virginia Serious Games Institute. The SciTech campus has been growing steadily since 1997 with the addition of Discovery Hall and Katherine G. Johnson Hall. We will also be home to the Forensic Science Research and Training Laboratory starting in Spring 2021. The latest renovation is of our student lounge, The Source. Visit Katherine Johnson 122 to see the new furniture and wall art!

This week we are kicking off #AllAroundMasonNation with the Arlington Campus! Each day this week, we will highlight a different campus to celebrate all the unique features that make them a part of the #MasonNation! Check out the All Around the Mason Nation magazine to learn more about Mason’s campuses – go.gmu.edu/allaroundmasonnation

Let’s start the week off with Ziad, a doctoral student at the Arlington Campus working towards his PhD with the Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution. “One of my favorite things about the campus is that you can walk around the buildings and join an event on a wide variety of topics and issues. On a daily basis you can always find a social, career, or academic event happening across campus. My recommendation to the #MasonNation when they visit the Arlington campus is to mingle, make connections, and make sure to explore the area; it truly has everything! Insider tip: make sure to check out the University Life Arlington suite. It is a great place to meet new people!”

The Arlington campus is home to over 2,000 students from the Schar School of Government and Policy, Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, Antonin Scalia Law School, and programs in Arts Management and the School of Business, and Executive and Professional Education.

Founded in 1979 the Arlington Campus began as the home to Antonin Scalia Law School. The campus has been expanding ever since and now includes Van Metre Hall, Hazel Hall, and Vernon Smith! The campus is excited to continue this growth with the Institute for Digital InnovAtion (IDIA). In the next five years, Mason’s Arlington Campus will undergo a transformation that will serve as a critical catalyst in the further activation of the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor, a dynamic and growing innovation district with a thriving high-tech ecosystem.

Dear Patriots,

A few moments ago, the criminal justice system that has long failed people of color began the process of holding Derek Chauvin accountable for his role in the murder of George Floyd. Though this guilty verdict is not justice, and we have a long journey toward true justice, this rendered verdict is a step; It is our hope that this conviction will pave the way for systemic change nationwide.

We know that recent days and weeks have evoked many emotions. We want to provide support and processing spaces for our campus community to gather, reflect, and continue these important conversations that will, hopefully, allow us to continue our work toward systemic change.

Tomorrow, and for the remainder of the week, University Life units including the Campus Center for Truth Racial Healing and Transformation; Counseling and Psychological Services; the Center for the Advancement of Well-being; and the Student Support and Advocacy Center will collaborate to provide virtual gathering spaces that enable students, faculty, and staff to come together.

Join us on Wednesday at one of the following times.

- Wed, April 21 @ Noon: go.gmu.edu/8lw5
- Wed, April 21 @ 5PM: go.gmu.edu/p41z
