Long before the shadows of Founders Hall were cast towards George Mason University’s graduate campus on Fairfax Drive, there stood a rectangular red brick building serving as a central part of Mason’s Arlington campus. The Arlington Original Building as it is still called, was a Kann’s department store prior to becoming home to many of Mason’s academic programs.
On Saturday, Mason baseball hosts Fairfield University in a doubleheader before squaring off with the Stags again on Sunday in the series finale.
Mason (8-3) is off to its best start since the 2009 season when they started 14-3 en route to the school’s only at-large bid.
Fairfield (1-4) continues its Commonwealth tour in Fairfax, as they faced the University of Richmond earlier this week, losing 2-13 and 0-8, but also capturing the first win of the season behind a dominant performance on the mound by EJ Ashworth.
Imagine receiving the brunt end of a fiery debate that rocks the foundation of American higher education to its core and you are just months removed from high school and had no prior hand in the debate.
Add in the fact that rules were implemented for your current organization by an outside organization that is preventing you from turning professional, forcing you to join said current organization, and you have thousands of men who are labeled as coddled and not deserving of fame.

Each spring, Mason’s student government hosts its election for student senate and student body President. The organization’s constitution states its goal as “advocate the interests of the student body, educate the University community with regard to the state of the institution, and represent the interests of each student”. Furthermore, Student Government serves as a liason between the administration, faculty, staff, and University community.
The Mason men’s volleyball team lost to Penn State 3-1 sets (25-19, 25-22, 26-24, 26-24) Saturday night at the RAC.
Mason (6-8, 2-4 EIVA) lost the first two sets but won a close third set to stay in the match. The fourth set went down to the wire, but this time it was the Nittany Lions (13-3, 6-1) who came on top and won the match.
At 8pm on March 2., President Ángel Cabrera disdainfully announced on Twitter that Mason campuses would be closed on Monday due to winter weather.
School closed tomorrow (really tired of these announcements)
With three seconds remaining in the first half of Sunday’s Atlantic 10 matchup between Mason and George Washington at the Charles E. Smith Center, head coach Paul Hewitt called a timeout to set up a possible game tying play just minutes after blowing a six-point lead.
Marko Gujanicic inbounded the ball to Byron Allen who raced up the court and found a wide-open Patrick Holloway already cocked in-stance, ready to hit a long range jumper.
Instead, the ball went directly through the sophomore’s hands and out of bounds to end the first half.
