I have acquaintances who give this college very high marks. Its growth rate is evidence of its quality.

I've always dreamed of going to George Mason University. Ever since I was a little girl. I've been to the campus twice with the program AVID while I was in Francis C. Hammond Middle School. I fell in love. This college is definitely my first choice and has always been. I am looking forward to seeking out there areas of cheer leading, TV media, or criminal justice. Further more, I also hope to be employed on campus at any job but especially their on campus day care for student. I have no children and I am 17 but this school I know is perfect for me!
