FIFA may come to Mason

FIFA officials came to look at Patriot Stadium Tuesday evening to see if it could be used as a practice facility for the 2018 World Cup.

U.S. Soccer submitted a bid to host the famous world soccer championship in either 2018 or 2022, however they seem to be focusing on the 2018 bid. The U.S. is competing with England, Russia, Belgium and the Netherlands (who have submitted a joint bid), and Portugal and Spain (who have done the same). Indonesia and Mexico have dropped out of the running.

SUB I addition opens, offers 'enrollment central' for students

Beginning in the fall semester, current students will find Student Union Building I to be a one-stop shop for student services and some university life departments.

The addition to the back of the building, on the side near the student apartments, has been completed and is ready for use. A great deal of the space is being used by student services, including the registrar, financial aid, and part of the admissions office.
