Interested in learning more about the Mason LIFE Program? Come to an information session for more details.

Due to high demand, we do not schedule individual/family visits to the Mason LIFE Program. In order to minimize the need for travel for interested students from out of area and/or out of state, we have scheduled group information sessions which are listed below.

All sessions will be recorded and available via remote access. Please email Mrs. Stephanie Atkins, the Mason LIFE Program Office Manager, for information on how to join one of the sessions remotely or to RSVP that you would prefer to attend in person. Meetings in person will take place in Krug Hall, room 208.

Recordings of the sessions will be posted to the website to be viewed at your convenience.

Campus tours are available throughout the year https://www2.gmu.edu/admissions-aid/visit-mason Click on Information Sessions and Tours to access the calendar and to schedule your visit.
