August 24, 2019 – September 12, 2019

This four week extravaganza includes all things Mason and is a great way to kick off the semester! Enjoy fun events that will ignite your Spirit and make it a little easier to start classes (trust us we know it can be difficult to be back). Meet or reconnect with student organizations, academic departments, and campus groups alike. Most importantly, gather with your friends over free food, prizes, and school supplies. We look forward to seeing you soon!
