George Mason University

Diversity

As Virginia’s largest public research university, Mason is committed to keeping our doors open and accessible to as many capable students as possible.

Diversity lives here.

Named one of the most diverse public universities in the country by U.S. News & World Report, we serve students of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds. We enroll nearly 34,000 students from 130 countries and all 50 states. Walk around campus and you will hear many different languages being spoken, from Arabic to Zulu.

The multitude of ideas and perspectives our students bring to Mason help to ignite the kinds of discussions that generate different ways of thinking and bring new ideas to light. Ideas that can have an impact on building a freer, more just world.

Each spring the university comes together for International Week as our students celebrate and share their cultures.

Mason Nation extends around the globe.

Located 25 miles from Seoul, in the town of Songdo, the Mason Korea campus accommodates 2,000 students and includes world-class teaching facilities, a library with state-of-the-art technology, a performing arts center, comfortable residence halls, faculty apartments and guest housing.

Mason Korea students come from throughout East and Southeast Asia and beyond, including students from our Fairfax Campus. Mason Korea students spend their first and second year in Songdo, third year in the United States, and the final year in Songdo. U.S. students are also permitted to spend one or two semesters in Songdo.
