Don’t think of D.C. as a stuffy, uptight city. Today, there is so much going on in this culturally diverse and vibrant metropolis.

Besides world-famous museums and the postcard landmarks we’re all familiar with, there are also concerts, festivals, global cuisine, nightlife, shopping, and so much more. It’s a great place to explore on the weekend and is easily accessible by Metro or car. At Mason, you can have the best of both worlds—a beautiful campus in a relaxed, residential setting and the excitement and urban vibe that only a world capital such as D.C. can offer. It is no wonder that Forbes magazine recently ranked it as the nation’s “coolest city”.
