On Friday, Sept. 5, the Resident Student Association hosted block parties on campus to welcome students back to George Mason University and celebrate the new school year.

This all-evening series of events included festivities in each of the three residential neighborhoods on campus, Shenandoah, Rappahannock and Aquia, with a late-night neon block party at North Plaza. Activities ranged from free food and giveaways to music, games and crafts.
