Mason professor sets the record straight about the origins of zombies

This week, zombies have taken over campus as part of Mason’s first ever Geek Week. On October 10, students and staff gathered in the Johnson Center to listen to a lecture on zombies given by anthropology professor Jeffery Mantz, who specializes in zombie culture.

Zombies invaded George Mason University's Fairfax Campus on Saturday.

The event, Survive Mason: Humans vs Zombies, was hosted by Weekends at Mason (WAM) and involved 150 students participating in the faux-zombie invasion.

C2M's George Yanez was on the scene and captured footage of the onslaught.
