Mason, a third year undergraduate student studying Economics, is already a competent user of modern technology. Growing up in Xi’An in China and Tampere in Finland Mason is keen to develop his leadership skills during his time at Lancaster, a skill that ties in with his passion for gaming.
A keen gamer on the competitive online game Defence of the Ancients, better known as DotA, he counts one of his greatest successes with technology persuading his DotA team mates to use headphones for in-game voice chat! But he is just as happy to be able to use computers effectively and get the most out of them, although small monitors are his biggest gripe – something all gamers can appreciate.
For Mason the best thing about Lancaster is its location, with the beauty of the Lake District on his doorstep and the good transport links with Manchester it offers everything he is after.
