George Mason University

George Mason University is a place Jules Ismail frequents approximately once a week. Initially, these visitations were to spend time with her friends, but as time progressed, Jules finds herself on campus for an array of random, bizarre, reasons.

Methods of Arrival

Metro

The first time she went to GMU, accompanied by Alex, Jules went via Metro. Which was stupid because it took a total of four hours to get there and involved taking a bus 10 miles out of the way, a train 10 miles farther, and another bus 20 miles back to the right direction.

Bicycle

Jules usually gets to GMU on her bike. She has taken several different paths to get there.

Alpha Route

Alpha Route is the first and original path Jules took to get to GMU. It is the longest and safest path from the Point of Origin. Alpha Route takes approximately two hours and a half total.

Alpha Route: Little River Turnpike -> Left on Ravensworth -> Right on Braddock -> Cross Perilous Bridge -> Right on Roberts Road -> Arrive at GMU.

Alpha Route Variant 1

On the day Alex and Jules walked to GMU, Alex suggested a slightly alternative path. It is a slightly shorter journey, but more dangerous because it involves turning onto Braddock earlier, where there is less sidewalk and shoulder. It doesn't save much time from Alpha Route.

Alpha Route Variant 1: Little River Turnpike -> Left on Braddock (by the Home Depot) -> Cross Perilous Bridge -> Right on Roberts Road -> Arrive at GMU.

Beta Route

When walking home from GMU with Alex, yet another route was used. Jules later experimented with this route and found it to be faster by approximately thirty minutes. It is extremely dangerous in comparison to Alpha Route. From the Point of Origin, the path is:

Little River Turnpike until it becomes Main Street -> Cross Mega Perilous Bridge of Death -> Left on Roberts Road -> Arrive at GMU.

Beta Route Variant 1

Jules once tried experimenting with Beta Route to avoid traffic. She decided not to do it again.

Little River Turnpike -> Side Street that leaves you trapped and unable to rejoin Little River -> Slide down vertical wall of a construction site -> Continue on Little River Turnpike until it becomes Main Street -> Cross Mega Perilous Bridge of Death -> Left on Roberts Road -> Arrive at GMU.
