The great thing about being one of the most diverse schools in the nation is surely the large selection of guys and girls to choose from. White, black, asian, latino, artsy, preppy, scenester; you name it, there’s a huge number of any type of guys or girls at Mason. The many campus organizations and groups—Mason has about 250—are also a great way for students to meet people with the same interests and values.
But since Mason is the largest school in Virginia, with over 30,000 students, it’s not likely that one classroom encounter or just catching the eye of a hot guy or girl on campus will blossom into a relationship. The best advice is to get involved and go meet people! Generally, Mason students are laid-back and open-minded, so as long as students put themselves out there, there are plenty of prospective girlfriends and boyfriends just waiting to be found.
