Student-Athlete Affairs

"It is not the length of life, but the depth of life."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

The NCAA Student-Athlete Affairs program has been developed and implemented at George Mason University through the support of the University, the NCAA, and the Atlantic 10 Conference (A-10) in providing student-athletes an extraordinary environment that fosters principles of leadership, excellence, achievement, and diversity. The Student-Athlete Affairs program was developed to provide student-athletes with a support system that will assist them through the many transitions of college, help prepare them through the many transitions of college, help prepare them for the professional world, and at the same time provide opportunities to make meaningful contributions to the community.


The program has been designed with a great deal of care in mind for George Mason student-athletes so that they will get the most out of their educational opportunities, excel athletically, develop personally, discover personal rewards from community service, and to explore career development. We hope to empower you, to embrace the many aspects of college education, athletics and life; through educational programs, volunteer opportunities, academic workshops, guest speakers and countless other initiatives.
