Fourth Estate/Allison Alberty

Welcome back, Patriots! 

The Fourth Estate is proud to continue spreading kindness across campus this year with the newly renamed program, “Pats for Patriots.” The Fourth Estate would also like to send a very special pat to the Mason Chooses Kindness Initiative in the Center for the Advancement of Well-Being for facilitating positivity within the Mason community!

This week…

Staff member Mary Horner received a pat for being a “fantastic colleague.” She is appreciated for helping a colleague get settled into their new role, “For always offering thoughtful and constructive feedback to elevate our work, and for keeping everything and everyone organized.”

Student Body President Sophia Nguyen received a pat for not only being “an amazing friend”, but also for serving the student body “In so many ways through Student Government and the many other organizations she is a part of.”

Staff member Julia Adams received a pat from a colleague who shared their appreciation for “Not only your ingenuity in creating a welcoming space for our new students, but your patience and kindness in helping them sort out problems and issues!” 

The Fourth Estate would like to send a pat to all Mason students, faculty, and staff members navigating the beginning of a new semester. The start of a new school year can be overwhelming and stressful at times, but this is just the beginning of what we know will be a great year!
