Mason is going head-to-head with Virginia Commonwealth University to see who has the biggest fan base. As Virginia’s largest universities and Colonial Athletic Association rivals, Mason and VCU are hosting a Facebook Face-Off to see which school can get the most new fans on the popular social networking site.
The competition tipped off on Jan. 19 and runs until noon on Feb. 9, 2010. The school with the most new fans when the buzzer sounds will be announced at halftime during the VCU and Mason men’s basketball game (the game starts at 7 p.m.).
In addition, when you become a fan of Mason—or if you already are—you can enter to win four premium seats at the Homecoming game on Feb. 20. To enter for free Homecoming tickets, follow these easy steps:
