Mason Family Flash

Registration is now open for Family Weekend 2018!

Mark your calendars for November 9-11 and visit to register to take part in this university-wide celebration. Family Weekend is an opportunity to attend events designed to allow families to meet one another, become familiar with university staff and administrators, and spend time with your student(s).

The schedule of events for Family Weekend includes student performances, a wine and cheese event, athletic events, bus tours of the surrounding area, a 5K run/walk, and so much more! By purchasing a $5 Family Weekend Access Pass, you can enjoy the fun that is Family Weekend and gain entry to more than 25 events that do not require special event tickets. Visit for more information on the schedule of events and special event ticket pricing.

If you need hotel accommodations during Family Weekend, you can book now at one of our four partner hotels that offer discounts for Mason families. Rooms fill up quickly, so we encourage you to book early if you know you are attending Family Weekend!

Join the George Mason Family Association Facebook Group
This group was created to supplement the George Mason Family Programs Facebook page by providing a space focused on family-to-family conversation.  Parents and family members are invited to utilize the group as a source of celebration and support as we all strive to support our students and each other on this collegiate journey. To request membership to the group, search George Mason Family Association on Facebook.

We hope you take advantage of this Facebook group to connect you with other Mason families throughout the summer and into the academic year and we look forward to seeing you in November for Family Weekend!
