I attended Brenau for two years. I loved every minute of it. If it was not for Brenau, I would not be where I am today. A tutor for Brenau said ' It lacks parental involvement...,' but that is with any boarding school, and the teachers posed as our mothers. My mom not being there to cater to my every need is exactly what made me so independent and successful at Brenau. The teachers and house mothers are there as second moms, without replacing your real mom. My relationship with my mom grew better. I learned that everybody is family at Brenau. I still consider each and every person either a 'sister' or a 'second-mom.' There may be some rebellion with some of the girls, but that is in any school, and there are limits set and rules you must follow. The academics were great. We had a real advantage being next to the university.
