Historical Information

George Mason University, previously George Mason College (GMC), was founded as a satellite campus of the University of Virginia in 1957. With limited resources, the college began to offer the first two years of liberal arts degrees, pre-engineering programs, and some advanced language and science courses in 1966. George Mason College only hosted the North, East, South, and West buildings, while the original Fenwick library was still being built. It gained independency in 1972, becoming a full four-year school.
