Historical note

George Mason University, previously George Mason College, 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. The campus was still in its infancy when Doug Nelms became a student there. 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. Nevertheless, the small campus and small student body functioned as a normal college, hosting many clubs and parties.
