Brenau ‘Hoverboard’ Ban Now in Effect

Sorry, Brenauvians: you won’t be able to cruise around campus like Marty McFly circa 2015 anymore.

Brenau University announced the prohibition of all hoverboards, self-balancing scooters and skateboards and hands-free Segway devices Jan. 19. The ban extends to the use, possession, storage and recharging of the electric transportation gizmos, which are notorious for catching fire.

The policy applies to all students, staff and faculty at all campuses.
