George Mason University

When Patriots Become Patriots. More than half of Mason's 190,000 alumni live and work in the Washington, D.C., area, providing graduates with a diverse and extensive professional network.

We're a good match for the military for a variety of reasons, including:

  • University-based veteran organizations: If you're looking for people with similar experiences, you'll find friends here. Mason Veteran Patriots, the Military Law Society, and the Society of American Military Engineers will welcome you.
  • Diverse community: Diversity is one of our core values; everyone is welcome here. Mason was recently named the most diverse university in Virginia by U.S. News & World Report.
  • Proximity to D.C.: The Washington metro area has a population of more than 400,000 veterans and their families, and it's easy to see why. Military bases such as Fort Myer, Fort Belvoir, Andrews AFB, Bolling, and the Pentagon provide access to commissaries and other services (as well as a large community of active-duty personnel). The Department of Veterans Affairs is headquartered downtown, and a VA medical center is also in Washington.
  • Employment opportunities: Another benefit of being near Washington, D.C., is the access to jobs. This area is home to hundreds of positions offered through the civil service, by military contractors, with the private sector, and by non government organizations. Graduates are also sought by companies based in the Virginia Technology Corridor and among organizations in the Bethesda medical community. Many members of the military and veterans also have top-secret clearances, which give them a leg up.
