Vice President Rose Pascarell’s Welcome Message

On behalf of University Life, welcome to Mason! As a member of Mason Nation, you are part of this special and wonderful community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. University Life partners directly with the Mason Korea Office of Student Affairs to provide you with the help you need to succeed. I hope you will explore all that the Mason Korea community has to offer. Your contributions are unique, allowing you to enrich Mason in a way that no one else can. Don’t be afraid to step forward and find your place, in Songdo, during your time in Fairfax, or beyond.

Your choices will define your Mason experience. Be curious and take risks. Don’t stop learning when class ends – the learning opportunities that take place outside of class are equally interesting. Take advantage of the entire Mason experience so you can discover what you are truly passionate about doing in (and for) the world. There are hundreds of ways to get involved and make your mark! Find the ones that suit your interests and strengths. As pioneers at our Mason Korea Campus, you have the opportunity to set the pace and to help shape the future experience for incoming students for years to come.

University Life measures its success on the support for and success of our students. Please take advantage of the resources, direct services, and programs offered by the Mason Korea Student Affairs team. Participate in the many co-curricular opportunities designed to increase career readiness skills, develop global/multicultural proficiency, encourage civic engagement, and discover your own strengths and increase wellbeing.

I encourage you to stay well-connected with the Mason Korea Office of Student Affairs as you navigate your Mason experience. Also know that our division of University Life based in Fairfax is available as an additional source of support. I invite you to explore our website and reach out to any of our Fairfax-based offices for additional information. Our team is eager to connect with you, whether virtually, during a visit to Songdo, or during your year-long stay at the Fairfax Campus.

As a Mason student, I hope you are academically challenged both in the classroom and through your presence and interactions in our diverse community. University Life and Mason Korea Student Affairs are here to help you achieve your goals and aspirations.

Have fun, stay safe, and have a great semester! I look forward to meeting you during one of my visits to Korea or during your time in Fairfax.

Best wishes,

Rose Pascarell
Vice President for University Life
