Student Support

Patrick Money is the Associate Director of Admissions for George Mason University. After starting as a student employee at the Admissions office, he has spent the last decade as a member of the Mason Admissions family helping students and families find the right college destination.

Patrick has lived in Northern Virginia his entire life and attended high school at Lake Braddock Secondary. He had an amazing experience as an undergrad while earning his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology here at Mason. This area is an incredible place for young people to explore options both professionally and socially – an opportunity he took in full, which ultimately led to a college career he thoroughly enjoyed and would not trade for anything.

One of his favorite memories was when he made his initial decision to come to Mason back in 2006 after he saw the Men’s basketball team reach the final four live at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.! (He still talks about it like it happened yesterday!!)

Patrick has a passion for higher education and even more so for George Mason University, and he hopes to share it with all those who are interested.
