Mason Lobbies is an annual event where we, as Mason students and alumni, take part in advocating for higher education and George Mason University’s student priorities at the state level. A bus caravan will head down to Richmond (departing from the Fairfax campus) for the "Mason Lobbies Day." Student and alumni participants will have the opportunity to personally meet State Representatives and Delegates and talk about their Mason experience. Please see below for more details on each Mason Lobbies 2017 event/activity for alumni & students.

The 2017 Mason Lobbies Day initiatives include:

  • Increasing financial aid to Mason Students
  • Faculty and Staff Compensation
  • College Affordability

Mason Lobbies is an extremely beneficial way to get involved and have the voices of our Mason students and alumni heard in Richmond. To learn more visit sg.gmu.edu.
