Brenau University Reviews
Rating 3.66 out of 5 748 reviews
It’s good so far I’m just trying to balance work and study life. The school is good however it’s very expensive.
I wish I did my research on Brenau University and looked at there graduation rate prior to deciding to go to this university. If your considering their nursing program try to talk to current students ( who are unhappy, and feel they have no support). Do your research, trust me look into other nursing programs before considering Brenau. You will overpay for your degree ..
So far it's okay. I'm at the very start of the process. So, I haven't interacted with them enough for an in-depth review.
My experience so far with Brenau University has been incredible. The professors are easily contacted and a re always willing to help whenever I have questions regarding the course materials.
The community and campus life are both amazing. The professors and faculty are all there to help and encourage you. They make it possible to grow and explore different opportunities
Brenau has given me something new and interesting. They have helped me every step of the way during this process and I know I can go to them if I have a problem. The campus is beautiful and right in the middle of everything you could need. The students and staff welcomed me with smiles and ensured me I’d have a great time here.
Everyone who works and attends there is really lovely. The campus is beautiful and not as confusing as you might think. Though it might look confusing and expensive, it's worth every cent.
it's a good school. it's a little too expensive in my opinion. the science building doesn't have a working water fountain. but it's a nice school, with excellent teachers, and is in a good community. It's also a small school with the biggest classes having no more than 40 students. So if your like me and don't like big classes, it's a good school for you. The students are nice as well. Its a mostly girl-student-bodied school, and there is campus security always driving around. so it's very safe and the dorms are good too.
Brenau employees are helpful and resourceful. When I started the college very confused about how financial aid worked everyone I talk to in the financial aid office was able to explain and give me better understanding of what I needed to do and what was going to happen with my financial aid what processI would like to see more online classes.
Registration was a breeze, and immediately after you get enrolled, the trouble begins. I could not reach my advisor for months & had to contact the board multiple times for guidance. I managed to maintain Merit List my first semester due to most of the teachers being AMAZING, however, the school is terribly unorganized. I have officially decided to find a different school after a semester of multiple health issues documented by my doctor & issues that I informed all of my Professors & Advisors of. Specifically my Statistics Professor was completely unsympathetic, almost judgmental. Long story short I ended up failing a EXTREMELY expensive class (that I held a A/B+ in the entire semester) by 1 point after my final. After pleading with the professor and chair of the school, it’s clear that this school lacks understanding and ability to work w/online students. So many bad experiences has lead up to this review and I’m sickened at the amount of student loans I’ve accrued for this outcome!
The education is great, and the teachers are very helpful and aim to give you many opportunities, but the cost of tuition is VERY high, not only did I get bare minimum of scholarships they instantly want most students to take loans. Not to mention if your EFC is a little bit higher than tuition they give the bare minimum of scholarships, even though my family makes 1,000 over the school tuition doesn't mean that we pay for the school since most of that money goes to bills and making sure we can survive, not only that they don't give you any work study jobs that pay higher than minimum wage, which is just outrageous, there is no other way to pay for this school unless you have a full ride or you got a lot of scholarships or if you are rich. Most people drop out because they can't afford it.
Brenau University has a good community, but one that I believe is primarily found in sororities on campus. The walkability is excellent, and the newer facilities, such as the School of Psychology, are comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped for learning. As a historic college, the older buildings and dorms could be better, particularly in small classrooms and temperature control. However, this is balanced out by the opportunities given to students, such as using the school's small size to make friends more easily, along with access to many quality productions at Pierce Auditorium Theater. The college could be better, but the atmosphere and overall experience are worth dealing with the less-attractive points.
What I liked most about this university is that there is an abundant amount of friendly and helpful professors who offer additional support for better success. My successor coach has been nothing but shown gratitude and kindness to ensure I get the best care for registration and answer questions I have. The staff are also available for assistance. I recommend Brenau University if you are looking for online courses so you can learn from home and fit into your schedule. I hope this convinces you to at least look into for college searching. Thank you.
Brenau is a welcoming family, there’s a sense of belonging within the family. The university body needs to be more social and treat students like actually college students and not kids.
My experience at Brenau has been pretty good. I have enjoyed around with new people. For me it is a great opportunity to meet them. Brenau has helped me with my education. Whenever I need something I just email to the department that I want to contact to. They are always opened to help me. Brenau has all the tools to make that their students can continue. Something that I would like to see that Brenau can do is that men can have sport where they also can participate. There are some students who like to play any sports, I am one of those students who would love to to have like a small team. It can be any sport, the only thing that matter is to have fun and other students can meet others. I know that there are several clubs where students can participate. Having a chess club there will be students who would love to be interested. I have been with some students, and they have told that they like to play chess, so it will be a good idea to have a chess club.
I love Brenau University! My favorite part has to be the Dance Department, absolutely stunning! I have learned amazing things, met amazing people, and grown more than I ever thought possible!
I love being a student at Brenau University! It’s so nice to be part of such a close knit campus community that allows you to make connections and achieve any dream you have.
