Director's Letter

Dear Alumni,

Never has the name of this magazine been more appropriate. George Mason University is buzzing with excitement following an extraordinary basketball season, a highly successful and fun Homecoming Block Party, the Arlington Campus dedication, and numerous alumni activities blossoming everywhere. In addition, four new alumni chapters have been established: Broadside, DC Metro, Forensics, and Richmond.

If you have visited George Mason lately, you have probably noticed that it looks a little more green and gold. You might have seen offices, windows, and doors decorated with pennants and basketball hoops and slogans that read "Mason Rocks." You might not even be surprised to hear an airplane flying overhead pulling a banner with the phrases "Doin' it Patriot Style" or "Congrats Patriots, CAA Champs." You might have seen a large banner hanging over Chain Bridge Road in downtown Fairfax announcing our men's basketball team as Colonial Athletic Association conference champions, reflecting a renewed interest in developing town and gown relations. "Patriot Pride" is on the rise and the spirit is highly contagious. We encourage you to discover what is generating this excitement. Please let us know if you would like to learn more about participating in alumni activities and supporting the university. You can also find up-to-date information on the website at Check out "Today@Mason" for a daily digest of university news.

We hope to see many of you at the Virginia Gold Cup Hospitality Tent on Saturday, May 1, and at Mason Day at Gunston Hall, Sunday, May 16. Join us in celebrating George Mason's success and help us build the future of this great university.

Christine Clark-Talley
Interim Director
