Hi there! My name is Kimberly Olodun and I am an Admissions Counselor here at George Mason University, as well as a Mason graduate with a B.A. in Global Affairs and a concentration in World Arts. I am originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, but moved to Honolulu, Hawaii after my second year of college (I’m from a military family!).
As a student at Mason I was heavily involved in student life on campus, serving as a Resident Adviser, the president of the Black Student Alliance, and a teaching assistant for several African Dance classes on campus. Going to a school fifteen minutes away from the nation’s capital kept me excited about all the opportunities available to me, like performing arts events and visiting different restaurants in Georgetown. I was constantly visiting the Smithsonian museums, and an academic tour of U.S. Treasury brought new dimensions to my classwork.
The vibrant student life, dynamic academic opportunities, and lasting connections I made with award-winning faculty and staff made my Mason experience the best one I could ever have wished for. It also taught me the most important lesson of my college career: When you’re at Mason, you’re home!
As a counselor I work mostly with students from Maryland and Delaware, but I look forward to connecting with all of you and helping you move one step closer to calling Mason your home too!
