Brenau Celebrates Golden Tiger Way

The heart of Brenau University’s Gainesville campus has a new name, and in coming months, it could also have a new look.

Although the angled drive is not a city street, Gainesville Mayor Danny Dunagan, whose wife is a Brenau alumna, joined Brenau President Ed Schrader to officially christen Golden Tiger Way, formerly Centennial Circle, on the historic campus April 21. The ceremony also served as a pep rally to send off the Golden Tigers track & field team and tennis team to conference championship play in Mobile, Alabama.

Schrader said changing the campus street’s name, however, could be just the beginning of changes. He also proposes decorating Golden Tiger Way with enormous, painted paw prints and the distinctive black and gold Brenau logo.
