he Patriot Lodge #1957 at George Mason University was issued a charter from the Grand Lodge of Virginia on November 11, 2011. The Patriot Lodge is the newest lodge to be formed in Virginia in almost thirty years (not including research and daylight Lodges). An “academic” Lodge is a Lodge that focuses its membership on the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of a nearby institution of higher learning. The Patriot Lodge works closely with George Mason University in order to build its reputation as a valued member of the academic community. The Patriot Lodge was inspired by the example of The Harvard Lodge and other similar institutions.
