The Patriot Legacy

The GMU Forensics Team is an intercollegiate speech team. We represent George Mason at regional and national speech competitions in much the same way the Patriot track and basketball teams do. Forensics is public speaking and oral interpretation of literature, with events designed to focus on each of the ways the spoken word can be used to persuade or move an audience.

GMU Forensics has been the most successful team in George Mason's history, continuously ranking in the national top 35 schools every year since 1975, the top 5 schools each year since 2007, and even garnered the National Championship in 1979. One published study revealed that GMU is one of the few schools on the national level that has, over the past twenty years, remained solidly among the top programs.

Perhaps most amazingly, GMU Forensics has achieved this success with students just like you. Some of them have had experience in high school forensics, but many have not. Students come from far and wide to contribute to the Patriot Legacy, 75% of the team's members come from states other than Virginia. The coaching staff looks for desire, ability, and hard workers more than they look for experience. And we hope you'll be interested in contributing to our proud tradition.
