Welcome to Our Newest Patriots!

Welcome to the Class of 2017 & Incoming Transfer Students!! 

We’re so excited to have you as a part of the Mason community. Hopefully we’ll get the chance to meet some of you during the summer orientations. For those attending the two-day Freshman Orientations, we’ll be having a Patriot Information Session on Day One in the afternoon at 3:15pm in JC Room F. Additionally, our very own Student Body President & Vice President will be making a special appearance on Day 2! For those attending Transfer Orientation – feel free to ask any of the Student Involvement representatives about Student Government for more information.

Just as a reminder – we reserve 10 Senate seats for our Fall election ONLY for freshman and transfer students! The Fall timeline is below, but if you have any questions about the election process, please feel free to email SGEDC@gmu.edu. If you’re interested in joining a different branch either through the Executive Cabinet OR the Elections & Disputes Commission, please see the application on our homepage OR email SG@gmu.edu. Thank you!
