What Students Are Saying

3.32 Average Rating
Brenau University has allowed me the opportunity to achieve my goals as a student while having a career and family. Brenau University has small classes, which makes learning easier and the teachers are willingly available when extra help is needed. The Financial aid and Advisory staff are very friendly, patience and helpful in giving accurate information about courses and schedules.
