This year’s Mason Fall Premiere is taking place during our annual Family Weekend! Family Weekend is one of our most exciting fall programs here at Mason. We encourage your family to join us for a couple other events during this university-wide celebration. Below we’ve listed these other options during Family Weekend:

  • Mason Madness – Friday, October 18th - 8 pm – Patriot Center
    Join us for the annual kick-off to the Mason men’s and women’s basketball seasons. This year’s event marks the beginning of our inaugural season in the Atlantic 10 Conference. The players and coaches from both teams will be introduced along with a variety of student performances. Come catch the Mason spirit at the Patriot Center before the big event with music and giveaways at 7 pm. Doors will open for Mason Madness at 7:30 pm. No tickets are required! Just be there early to make sure you have a great place in line! Sponsored by Mason Athletics.
  • Family Weekend Comedian: Aziz Ansari (from Parks & Recreation fame) – Saturday, October 19th – 8 pm – Patriot Center
    Join us for a laugh out loud standup comedy experience with “Parks and Recreation” star, Aziz Ansari. Tickets are $45 for the lower bowl and floor and $35 for the upper bowl. This event is hosted specially for George Mason University students and guests, so tickets will only be sold at the Patriot Center Box Office and by phone. To purchase your tickets, call 800-745-3000.
