George Mason University’s School of Business is now going to require CST 227, Business and Professional Communication. If you transfer with your associate’s degree, but without qualifying for the GAA, or if you transfer without earning the degree, you will need both CST 227 and CST 110 Introduction to Communication.
If you earn your NOVA degree and qualify for the Guaranteed Admissions Agreement at Mason you should be able to just take CST 227 as your CST elective for NOVA instead of doing CST 110 and 227. The university-wide oral communication general education requirement at Mason should be waived through the GAA even though it doesn’t count for the oral communication requirement at Mason.
CST 227 has been accepted as the equivalent course for GMU’s new BUS 103 class.

NOVA Student Film Festival has partnered with 3 established film festivals in the DMV area, for its 2nd annual showcase. They are the Alexandria Film Festival, Rosebud Film & Video Festival and DC Shorts Film Festival. I approached them with 2 objectives in mind: 1) to screen their respective “best of shows” in our festival; and 2) to arrange official internships for our students. I am pleased to report that they have agreed to be part of our village on both levels.
The festival is scheduled for Friday, May 1st from 6pm – 9pm; in Bisdorf room 196. It is open to the general public. Admission is free.
