Fourth Estate is George Mason University's official student-run news outlet. 

The organization was formed in Fall 2013 in collaboration between the student newspaper, Broadside, and an student-run news website, Connect2Mason. 

Our mission is to inform Mason students, faculty and alumni about what's happening in the community. Through a weekly publication and an online presence, Fourth Estate covers everything from the Board of Visitors to the next concert coming to the Patriot Center. 

We also like to have fun. Log on, join us and stay connected.

If you have a story, video, photograph or story idea, let us know.

Please fill out our contact form to get started. 

The Office of Student Media is located in The Hub, room 1201. If you need to reach Fourth Estate by phone please call (703) 993-9745.
