  • Student Organizations With over 300 student organizations at Mason, we offer a wide range of opportunities for students to get involved! Our registered student organizations (RSOs) provide learning environments for students, preparing them to live in a multicultural society and work in a global community. Our student organizations are also responsible for many of the programs and events held on campus each year including social events, lectures, special events, cultural events, and conferences. Our RSOs help create a welcoming, vibrant campus environment. And, most importantly, they offer you an opportunity to get involved and help you find your niche at Mason.
  • Student Government serves to meet the needs of the entire student body, whereas the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GAPSA) focuses their efforts on the graduate student population.
