Destress with Student Government

Finals are quickly approaching like many of you, we too are stressing out a bit. Each semester around finals week Student Government and various other groups on campus host destress events meant to help distract from (if not alleviate) the stressors of finals week.

In the past we have given away free scantrons and blue books. Donuts and dogs were at one time popular too. But in the age of online schooling some of these are simply impossible.

Our Academics Team, led by Moses Hunsaker on the Senate side and Mackenzie Nelson on the Executive side, put together an amazing week-long destress fest. Starting on Wednesday May 13 until Wednesday May 20, we will be posting on our social media Monday/Wednesday/Friday important tips, tricks, and more to help you destress.

Be sure you are following us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook at @masonstudentgov to stay up-to-date on the latest destress events.

From all of us at Student Government: Good luck on your finals. We hope to see many of you in the fall. To our amazing soon-to-be graduates, we wish you the best too!


Gold Rush 2019

Wow! Gold Rush 2019 was an absolute blast. This year Student Government partnered with the Patriot Activities Council and the Resident Student Association to host one of the most popular events of the fall semester. 

Gold Rush kicked off with a lively tailgate outside of EagleBank Arena followed by giveaways, games, and great pre-game activities at 5:30 PM. Well before doors opened there was already a line of eager students waiting to receive one of the free Gold Rush 2019 t-shirts, beanies, or caps. We gave away hundreds!

Parents, siblings, and relatives visiting for Family Weekend were treated to an extra special night of basketball madness. The Patriots won 76 – 65 against the Longwood Lancers. Check out one of our favorite moments from the game here.

Tonight’s success though wasn’t without months of preparation and handwork by all the partners involved. We want to specially thank both the Secretary for University Life, Logan Hoover, and the Chairman for the University Life Committee, David O’Connell, for their dedication over the last several weeks.

Most importantly, thank you Patriots for coming out and showing your support. Cheers to a successful Gold Rush 2019!
