How Do I Join?

To be one you must ask one!

Petitions: All men of good character (non-Mason) who wish to join The Patriot Lodge must have a connection with George Mason University, i.e. student (to include Osher Lifelong Learning Institute), faculty, staff, or alumni. We encourage you to visit with us at any of our meetings or events and look forward to getting to know you.

Affiliations: Current Brethren who wish to join The Patriot Lodge are welcome to apply, regardless of connection with GMU.

Interested in becoming a Mason? Here’s an easy way to start. Check out the link above this, because it outlines the basic requirements. Next, send an email, so you can get to meet some of us, get to know us, and get questions answered. You may receive a petition (Mason-speak for application) after that, which you’d fill out to begin the formal process through which a man becomes a Mason.
