The New Black shares a new perspective on homophobia

Many student organizations within the Mason community teamed up to present a new film exposing the dangers of homophobia at the JC Cinema.

Ninth-straight loss for Mason baseball comes in 16-1 drubbing by Maryland

At the end of the seventh inning, a few crows perched themselves atop the scoreboard at Spuhler Field. It was as if they were waiting to pick away at the beaten and battered George Mason Patriots after the Maryland Terrapins put on a small-ball clinic en route to a 16-1 win.

The Terps sacrificed runners over and drove them in with singles or sacrifice flies. Through the first seven innings of Wednesday’s matinee, Maryland (18-15, 4-11) had four two-run innings and led Mason (12-21, 4-11), 8-0.

In the pursuit of SSL hours, I trained to work at a therapeutic horseback riding center for a summer.
