Voters overwhelmingly approved the higher education bond on the ballot yesterday, providing George Mason with $79.6 million for construction projects. The bond passed with 73 percent of the voters marking “yes” on their ballots.

George Mason’s monies from the bond will fund seven construction projects: a research building and new academic building at the Fairfax Campus; an academic building at the Arlington Campus; renovation of Thompson and West buildings at the Fairfax Campus; ADA renovation at the university; construction of utility infrastructure at the Fairfax Campus; and redesigning existing facilities to create a conference and peace center at Mason Neck.
