The Mason Spirit: The Magazine for Alumni and Friends of George Mason University

Letter from the President

My Fellow Alumni:

Hope you all had a safe and happy holiday season. Many of you received our e-mail survey and responded with thoughtful, excellent insight. We are compiling the results and will incorporate the data into our strategic plan. Thanks to each of you.

As the New Year begins, we continue with the Spirit Phase of The Campaign for George Mason University. Previous phases of the campaign have been very successful, and now we, as alumni, have the opportunity to pitch in. We wish to raise money, of course, but we also wish to increase the number of alumni who donate. An increase in this number will help our national ranking as well as improve our image. Please give what you can.

We are happy to remind you that Homecoming is Saturday, February 21, beginning at 1 p.m. in Parking Lot L. Many of your former classmates will be there, showing school spirit and preparing for the basketball game against Delaware at 4:30 p.m. Please join us!

Always remember that you are welcome and encouraged to attend alumni events. To keep up with what’s going on, be sure to subscribe to the MasonWire by going to our online directory at and registering.

Best wishes for a great year!

Brian C. Drummond
