Brenau’s North Atlanta campus is celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women; therefore, it is vital to educate ourselves about the disease. North Atlanta staff has provided the Brenau family with brochures on how to conduct breast self-examinations at home.
Additionally, to honor survivors and loved ones that have lost their battle with breast cancer, individuals are encouraged to add their names to the memory wall placed in the lobby.
On July 26, Brenau held its first open house for the health care programs on the Norcross campus, including the new Accelerated BSN (ABSN) program, which is scheduled to begin in January 2019 and gives students the opportunity to obtain a nursing degree in as little as 16 months. Over 25 prospective students showed up eager to learn more about the programs.
The North Atlanta campus, which is in the process of undergoing changes to accommodate the expansion of students, is enthusiastic for the commencement of the programs.
On July 26, Regional Admission Specialist Makina Wallace attended the Women of AT&T Career Expo. The mission of the expo was to inspire women to reach their career, educational and professional goals while networking with individuals in various fields.
