Our Virtual Housing Fair is happening LIVE now!
Hey incoming students, Preamble is on it's way!
The Preamble is a mandatory extended-orientation program for new students prior to the start of the semester. Traditionally, these events would bring new students on-campus to engage in traditions and events to welcome them to campus. This year, we've adapted these programs for the virtual world! Starting August 19, a Preamble course will be available for all new students to complete the required modules by August 22.
Check out the graphic below for an overview schedule of the Preamble and all its content and events!!
If your #MasonFamily has questions about off-campus living, Contemporary Student Services (CSS) can help! The Virtual Mason OffCampus housing fair is tomorrow, Thursday, August 6 from 2-4 p.m. During that time, CSS staff and representatives from local properties will be available to answer questions in real time. Use this link to join the fair ➡️ gmu.ocpvirtualhousingfair.com/attend-the-fair
