The music and free food were a “nice surprise after getting out of class” for George Mason University student Sabrina Mazer. Mazer took part in this year’s much-anticipated Taste of Prince William, one of the Welcome Week activities offered on the Prince William Campus.

More than 100 students, faculty, and staff enjoyed the free samples. Vendors included Potbelly’s, Papa Johns, Panera, California Tortilla, Sodexo and Milwaukee Frozen Custard. All of these businesses are just a short drive from the campus and want to increase awareness of what is available to the George Mason community.

“Can’t go wrong with free food,” said student Ahkil Pal. While waiting for a sandwich sample, Amrita Shankar said she thought the event was “Great! Love having food with others, it really connects people.”

The event, hosted by University Life, brought together the Mason Nation for an afternoon of fun and tasty treats.
