Numbers don’t lie, and the numbers have it: George Mason University’s first-ever formal was a success.

A total of 125 people attended the event, which was held at the Mason Inn’s Junior Ballroom on April 16.

Mason to hold prom

George Mason University will hold its first formal dance on April 16 and is describing the event as a college prom. The prom will take place at the Mason Inn and will run from 7 – 11 p.m.

Free tickets were available at the Student Government office. An email was sent to students on April 13.

The event’s Facebook page invited students to “relive” their high school proms or “create another night of amazing memories.”
