BE FIRST. BU, first-generation student meeting July 19

Brenau will host the first BE FIRST. BU event for first-generation students this Thursday, July 19, at 1 p.m. in the Brenau Trustee Library, where we will welcome 21 of our incoming students and their families to campus. These incoming students are the first in their families to attend college, and we’re excited that they’ve chosen Brenau.

Through the Be First. BU program these students will have the opportunity to connect through various events, including a painting party, a ghost tour of Pearce and staying overnight in the new dorms. Dr. Jim Eck and Dr. Amanda Lammers will welcome the students and their families, and Dr. Crystal Toombs will highlight all of the support services offered to help them succeed at Brenau.

First-generation faculty and staff have been given T-shirts that will be distributed early this week. If you requested one, be sure to wear it on Thursday and welcome your fellow first generation students!
