F985 Fall 2018 Mason Athletics with Athletic Director Brad Edwards
Friday, 1:00–2:30, Oct. 19
Instructor: Brad Edwards
Coordinator: Jim Dunphy
George Mason University joined the Atlantic 10 (A10), one of the premier athletic conferences in the nation, in 2013. Shortly thereafter, in 2014, Brad Edwards became the athletic director at Mason. During that time, Mason has won multiple championships in the A10. Women’s basketball just had the most successful season in school history, and the men’s basketball team had the highest standing since they joined the A10. In this class, Edwards will set out the recent changes made at Mason, the current successes in Mason athletics, and look into the future of Mason athletics. This is a great opportunity, as the Mason fight song requests, for OLLI members to don their Green and Gold.
Brad Edwards has been the athletic director at Mason since 2014, having previously served in an athletic leadership position at his alma mater, University of South Carolina.
