Gathering in the John S. Burd Center for the Performing Arts, the Brenau welcome team greeted incoming first-year Women’s College students who met with their advisors and registered for classes on the Gainesville campus Monday, June 23. Parent and student sessions included topics such as health and wellness, honors program information and housing.
“Monday was a great day! We registered over 120 students who are excited to begin Brenau in August,” said Vice President of Student Services Amanda Lammers. “These new Brenau women are excited and ambitious and the class of 2018 will be the perfect addition to the Brenau family.”
Freshman students are required to read a common reader, a book chosen by the first year seminar instructors, which will be discussed in every FYS class. This year’s common reader is A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. According to a news release from The Carter Center, the book “urges the end of discrimination and abuse against women, calling it the number one challenge in the world today.”
