University Events plans and coordinates a variety of special events sponsored by the President’s Office and other departments at Mason. Events that involve the George Mason community are “University Events”. While these events can be quite complex logistically, they are great fun to work on and very rewarding. Strengthening the Mason community is the most important work we do. Our biggest event of the year is the Commencement Celebration in May. Other events have included the groundbreaking ceremonies and building openings, University Days, University Holiday Parties, the Presidential Inaugural Celebration and many more.
