George Mason University


Spring Spotlight Days

Mason's Spotlight Days are designed specifically for students who have been admitted to Mason as freshmen for the fall 2020 semester. Spotlight Days give admitted students an inside look at the tailored academic opportunities that Mason will offer them, as well as a preview of their lives as Mason Patriots!

Some of the highlights of this admitted student visit day will include:

  • Meet and greet with your Admissions Counselors
  • Engagement panel with faculty and students
  • Academic presentations on your prospective program of study
  • Campus and housing tour with a Mason Ambassador
  • A chance to get to know your fellow members of the Class of 2024!

While on campus, we encourage you to explore our campus dining venues and the University Bookstore, all of which are open to the public.

All Spotlight Days attendees should park in the Mason Pond Parking Deck and will have their parking validated at check-in. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with further details.

If you or a member of your family needs a special accommodation to fully participate in this open house, please contact Ashley King, Events Coordinator at aking23@​gmu.​edu at least three business days before the event.
