Leadership Family

March 13, 2013

So on this lovely spring break I have been watching a bunch of old Disney movies with my sister. We watched Lilo and Stitch the other night and I couldn’t help but think of my family back at Mason.  Family  is really important to me, just as it is Lilo in the movie and I […]

March 13, 2013

Note: This post was written by Macy Passawe, a participant on the 2013 AB trip to Jamaica. What happens in Jamaica STAYS in Jamaica….  While that may be true for many seeking refuge in beautiful Jamaica, swinging in a hammock on the sands of the Caribbean sea sipping on a cool bottle of Ting, while […]

Anticipating the Trip

As you many of you may know, spring break has began! My spring break will not officially start until tomorrow when me and 13 other students from GMU board the megabus at Union Station. We will be going to Philly where we will be helping clean up the community and educate the youth at an […]

“Where Are You Now?”

March 7, 2013

Some of you may know of the Mumford & Sons song “Where Are You Now?“. I recently listened to this song, and realized how many people I wonder that about. I don’t always think in the same harsh and cold context of the complete lyrics, but rather in the sense of the raw and curious title. […]

Friendship Week

March 5, 2013

So I think this would be awesome to do at Mason! I’ve been thinking about Mason traditions…and if I could make one Mason tradition, it would be a Friendship Week and I would incorporate ideas like this Soul Pancake video 🙂 Here at George Mason, we boast about being a diverse campus. However, as many […]

Starfish Service

“A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched her with amusement. She had been doing this for some time when a man […]

False Perceptions

March 1, 2013

I think an important characteristic of being a leader and not being quick to judge. A lot of times it is really easy to judge someone on what you heard about them or by their stereotype or by what you have seen them do or heard them say. All in all, false perceptions can be […]

Wasted Time…Missed Opportunities

March 1, 2013

Similar to Chauncey’s post, in high school I was extremely involved in co-curricular activities and various organizations around school (all of which were quite exhausting), so when I arrived at Mason I decided that I would take a back seat and allow others to take charge. With no job on campus and no memberships to […]
