Brenau University Reviews

19 reviews
I am in the occupational therapy program. My professors are more than helpful! They are more than willing to meet with me individually. My professors are enthusiastic about the subjects they teach. The topics are intriguing and spark my curiosity and learning. I had an Anatomy professor who didn't do anything except high school work packets. She rarely responded to any correspondence. It was difficult when I was struggling in this course and did not feel I received any assistance or learning in this subject.

Very great staff that really looks out for its students. I am just now starting and all of my summer classes have to begin online. The admissions department has helped me setup everything regarding classes. The financial aid department provides great opportunities to pay for each semester, which includes payment plans, federal loans, etc.
I have only enrolled at this point but I have been so impressed with the support I have been given in my preparation to go back to school after so many years. Financial aid & degree choices alone can be overwhelming while working a full-time job. This college is very "in tune" with adult online students. I have had 3 employees contact me to encourage and guide me through the early part of the process. I also get many emails giving me information on what is ahead. I can only imagine what is ahead for me in this exciting journey!
