About Us

Fourth Estate is George Mason University’s official student-run news outlet.

The publication was formed in fall 2013 in collaboration with the student newspaper, Broadside, and a student-run news website, Connect2Mason.

Our mission is to inform Mason students, faculty, alumni and interested observers about what’s happening on campus and in the community. We release a weekly print publication each Monday during the fall and spring semesters and maintain a strong online presence.

Log on, join us and stay connected.

Fourth Estate is housed in the Office of Student Media. which is located in the Hub, room 1201 and is open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. when school is in session. Summer hours vary. If you need to reach Fourth Estate by phone, please call (703) 993-9745.
