The Rathskeller, one of George Mason University’s first restaurants, underwent a major makeover this summer. Gone are the framed ambiguous T-shirts and dusty pennants. Now the walls are adorned with oversized images reflecting milestones in the school’s history in academics and athletics.
The new interior details of the sports bar/restaurant—affectionately known as “The Rat”—in the basement of SUB I on the Fairfax Campus were designed by George Mason alumna Larisa Prinz, who is the retail unit marketing coordinator for food service provider, Sodexo. In fact, Prinz is a “triple Patriot,” having earned her BA in art and visual technology with a concentration in photography in 2009, a public management certificate in 2014 and an MPA in 2015.
