The overall student body is approximately 54 percent female, according to new figures.

“There are more new faces on Mason’s campuses this fall – 10,250 new students, up from 9,562 for fall 2012,” the news-service report noted, including 3,011 first-time freshmen, up from 2,694 in 2012, based on numbers from George Mason’s Institutional Research and Reporting.

Just under 80 percent of first-time freshmen are Virginia residents, according to figures.
