Brenau Celebrates 2015 Winter Commencement

More than 200 undergraduate and graduate students walked across the Pearce Auditorium stage to receive their much deserved diplomas on Saturday, Dec. 12.

It was “a day of culmination, a day of beginnings,” remarked Brenau President Ed Schrader at the Gainesville historic campus ceremonies. In addition to being the first winter commencement ever for the 137-year-old institution, it was also the first graduation streamed live online.

In all, 455 students were eligible to receive diplomas. That includes 298 graduate students, 43 Women’s College students and 114 other undergraduates.
