Favorite thing about Mason: There's no box you have to fit into to be a Mason Patriot because of how diverse we are. Anyone can feel welcomed and be a part of our community!

Advice for students getting ready to apply for college: Your college essay, whether it be written or a video, is your best chance to make your voice stand out in your application, so don't pass it by. Don't be afraid to showcase your personality and give us a chance to really get to know you, quirks and all.

Favorite Washington, D.C. or Northern Virginia attraction: The Smithsonian Zoo.
