Intelligence Community Club (ICC)

The Intelligence Community Club’s goal is to allow students from any background or concentration to be a part of one universal club that provides insight into a vast array of intelligence studies, which would compliment your academic careers at Mason. Some of the Club’s proposed activities will include guest speakers, field trips to Intelligence agencies, movie nights, and networking and career opportunities.

Phi Beta Kappa

Phi Beta Kappa celebrates and advocates excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. Its campus chapters invite for induction the most outstanding arts and sciences students at America’s leading colleges and universities. The Society sponsors activities to advance these studies — the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences — in higher education and in society at large. Mason was awarded a chapter in August 2012 and joined the ranks of only 10% of American colleges with Phi Beta Kappa chapters.  

On April 17, 2013 the university inducted its first members into the Mason chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.  The CLS department is proud to congratulate four of our students on being inducted into this prestigious honor society:

  • Christina Cronise
