As of July 1, more than 2,200 freshman and 2,000 transfer students had declared their intention to enroll at George Mason in fall 2000. Eighty-five percent of the new freshmen are from Virginia. The other 15 percent are from 34 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, two U.S. territories, and more than 40 foreign countries.

The academic quality of the freshmen class has risen, with a 15-point increase in the SAT average and a 0.07-point increase in the grade point average. Final data on new freshmen and transfers for fall 2000 will be available from the Admissions Office in mid-October.

The Admissions Office is also looking for alumni volunteers. For more information, contact Amy Takayama-Perez at
