Student Fall Elections take place Tuesday and Wednesday, October 15-16. That’s next week! October 15th is going to be an exciting, and not to mention delicious, day at Mason because we have the OSI Cookie Cart with Career Services from 11-12pm. Also, it’s time to be inspired because Eric Ryan, founder of Method Soap, is coming to George Mason to discuss how he built his company from the ground up using sustainable resources and having his own creation become a household name.

Doors open at 9 p.m. at the Patriot Center, and the event is free and open to the public so bring your friends!
