Admissions Counselor


My name is Danny Brosnan, and I am an admissions counselor here at George Mason University. While I did not attend Mason as an undergraduate student, it is an institution that I have always admired from afar. As a native of Fairfax and a graduate of Paul VI Catholic High School, I can speak not only to the quality of education that George Mason offers to prospective students, but also to the advantages of its proximity to Washington, D.C., and surrounding areas.

After graduating from Wheeling Jesuit University in 2009, I began working in the radio and marketing industry in Arlington, VA. In my free time, I coached baseball and swimming in the Fairfax area, which helped me to realize how much I enjoyed working with young people. This realization was the impetus for becoming involved in higher education! Five years after graduating, I returned to Wheeling Jesuit in 2013, and for three years, I was tasked with recruiting students from the east coast and low-income areas. During this time I also completed a master’s degree in Educational Leadership. I started at Mason in 2016 and have quickly found my home here!

With three years of experience at a smaller institution, I am most impressed with how Mason manages to maintain an overall average classroom size of 25-35 students. Despite being the largest public research institution in the Commonwealth of Virginia, with a high national profile to boot, you feel like you are joining a close community from the moment you step on campus. Growing up in Northern Virginia naturally gave me the opportunity to be friends with many Mason alums, ALL of whom are doing well in their lives and careers (not surprising based on our 80% job placement rate just 6-months after graduation!).

Choosing the right college is a very exciting time in your life, and I look forward to sharing all that George Mason has to offer with you. If you have any questions about the admissions process, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. GO PATRIOTS!
