Getting involved during your career at Mason can add immeasurable value to your education, but it can also be overwhelming to know where to start. That's where the Patriot Experience comes in!
We've taken the thousands of events and hundreds of organizations already here at Mason and structured them into an organized program. The program is completely self-paced and will help you navigate through the opportunities on-campus and find something that aligns with your interests.

Track Your Progress

Through your participation in the Patriot Experience, you will build a comprehensive record that will demonstrate your development of knowledge and transferable skills in key competency areas that focus around well-being, career readiness, global and multicultural, and civic learning and community engagement sought by employers and graduate degree programs. Your Patriot Experience profile will record and track your engagement and involvement, including events and workshops you attend, organizations you're a member of, and any volunteering you complete while at Mason. Your profile will also allow you to share your skills and experiences as you prepare for your future beyond Mason. As you engage in intentional,
experiential learning with the Patriot Experience, you will be challenged to grow as a person, citizen, and leader.

How Does It Work?

There are 3 levels in the Patriot Experience co-curricular program. The first level is meant to be an exploratory and discovery opportunity. Level 1 will show you what Mason has to offer outside of the classroom, and refine your interests, or discover things you didn't know you were interested in!

After Level 1, you'll advance to Level 2 and 3, where you'll delve into one of the four pathway areas. It's up to you which pathway you'd like to continue with! Explore the pathways here:


The Patriot Experience is the perfect way for you to showcase and record your active engagement and participation in activities, workshops, lecture series, conferences, trainings, campus employment, and so much more.
