This has been a year filled with stress for Ian. It's his senior year! He has been busy with his AP classes, his Eagle project, working on fund raisers for an Orchestra competition and trip to NYC and applying to colleges! He applied to his three favorites. Luckily, he was accepted to all three! He picked his first choice and as luck or grades, would have it, recieved an academic grant as well, to George Mason University! Mason is located near the Washington DC area in Fairfax, Virginia!
We went up to take our second tour of Mason. We were welcomed with most of the incoming freshman class by the pep band, the Green Machine and Mason's Mascot, the Patriot!
Since we were hounded to pay the housing deposit for Ian's freshman year, by Ian. We/He was rewarded with a free Mason Tshirt and a bath towel, both emblazzoned with Mason in the school colors of green and gold! He's set now, he has clothes and a towel!
George Mason is quite diverse and though a large university, it doesn't have those huge freshman classes that people might think. Though it is a big school is has small home town appeal. There were a variety of clubs, sororities, fraternities and groups with tables to welcome the incoming freshman class.
