Students who are part of the inaugural NOVA and George Mason University ADVANCE initiative participated in the Kickoff Celebration on Thursday, August 30, at Mason’s main campus in Fairfax.
The ADVANCE students were greeted by NOVA President Scott Ralls and several members of the Mason University Life and Athletics offices. Following the celebration, the students participated in the Mason IVth Night Welcome Back Carnival. IVth Night gave the future Mason students a taste of what Patriot Pride looks like. Part of the experience is learning the Mason Fight Song, T-shirts, food, and visiting local vendors at their tables.
