Not just excellent extraordinary. At Brenau, this is education: Using your language skills to translate scientific research from a foreign language to complete a biology experiment; learning dance by participating and performing with a professional company; researching zoology, speaking Spanish and studying Mayan culture deep in the Yucatan forest. Such experiences make life extraordinary. And such is living and learning at Brenau, where education has the power to change lives. “Brenau University has shown me how things connect,” says one student. “And in those connections, I discovered how I could succeed.”
