The start of the Fall 2020 semester is just around the corner. Students began returning to the George Mason University campus on Saturday and moving into their residence halls.
Safety protocols to protect against COVID 19 global pandemic meant that things looked somewhat different from previous years, but there was the usual palpable excitement that comes with the start of a new year.
Mason President Gregory Washington was there to greet parents and students and welcome them back.
Welcome2Mason continues this week with upper-class students moving in through Tuesday and freshmen moving in starting Wednesday, Aug. 19.
