Are you kidding me? George Mason made it to the final four! Did anyone see the last 45 seconds of that game against Conneticut? This school has worked so hard to make it here for many years. I remember as a sophomore when they finished building the stadium and started making basketball a focus of the athletic department. We never had a real community feeling at the time as the school was primarily made up of commuters. The fraternity groups were the ties that bound for many people. It is great to see this happen, putting the school on the national map.
Of course, as an avid NPR listener, you often hear GMU talked about as researchers and writers for the radio news program. Academically, GMU has always been at the top. I couldn’t be prouder to have been the school’s second Homecoming Queen.
