Mason Man on the Street | Winter Graduation 2018

It is always a bittersweet occasion when a new group of students graduate Mason to start careers, move to another part of the world, or go on to get a second degree. But before they say their final goodbyes and take last minute selfies with friends, we sent out Mason’s own Man of the Mic, Samuel Dunn III, to capture some of their poignant parting thoughts, advice they would have given their younger selves, and other words of wisdom. Tissues optional
