Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    I love Brenau, but some things are definitely lacking for the $42,000 a year all of us are paying! For one, the food in the Gag/Tea Room are almost inedible. I shouldn't have to go off campus for every meal when I pay for a meal plan. Second, the housing is awful. My shower hasn't worked literally ALL SEMESTER and maintenance came in and told us "they didn't know why they were there". Plus, the mold in all the bathrooms is definitely a health hazard and everyone gets sick once we all get back on campus because of it. Besides those two (kinda major) things, I enjoy Brenau. It's a university and a good education. The staff/professors are always nice and willing to help. :-)

    Hopkins Dining Hall is probably the least likable quality of Brenau University's Women's College. The menu is very repetitive, and there are seemingly even fewer options than when I arrived my freshman year. However, most dining halls become mundane after a few years, and we at least do have a Tea Room on campus where we can purchase coffee, burgers, smoothies, ice cream, etc. The meal plan at the Women's College allows you to have a bit of flexibility with your meal plan, allowing you to choose more meals at the dining hall or more money for the Tea Room. The hours for both facilities are disappointing, though. I find most times that I have to plan my weeks around when the dining hall will be open.

    The food is always good. I've never had a problem. All my classes are at the nursing school, but whenever I do go to the main campus to eat, I've never been disappointed. Off campus there are many different places to eat around the city.

    The Gainesville square is super cute with boutique style restaurants and shops, then down a few stoplights is every chain you could think of. I don't have a meal plan just because I live off campus and would only eat there when I have classes, so it was expensive for me. But if you live on campus the meal plan would work.

    Lots of variety. Prices are a little high, but what school isn't.

    I like how the meal program is set up and the food is great! If there are any food issues (allergies) etc they will work with you so there is food available that is healthy for you.

    The food is okay for the most part. I'm definitely not starving. I feel that the staff does the best that they can to assure quality food and many options. Sometimes I just feel as if they don't have enough variety.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek Life on Brenau University's campus is something entirely special. We are one of the few Women's Colleges in the nation that offer Greek housing, and we pride ourselves in strong historical roots and Greek unity across campus. About half of our residential students are Greek, and the numbers for each sorority are somewhat small. Although some see this as a drawback, I think it is perfect! Everyone has a chance to truly get to know each other, and it is not anything like the crazy partying sorority girls you might see on TV. There are several leadership opportunities available, and the campus embraces each philanthropy with campus-wide efforts very often. The Panhellenic sororities on campus are Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Alpha Gamma Delta, Zeta Tau Alpha, and Phi Mu. The Pan-Hellenic sororities on campus are Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta. There is a great sense of purpose and unity amongst Greek life members on campus.

    Greek Life is an amazing experience that I would not trade for anything in the world. Everyone is so friendly, whether they're in your sorority or not. Not a party school and it's a dry campus so all the sororities focus on doing good in the community.

    There's lots of Greek life at Brenau. We are home to eight sororities. Each helps different causes, such as the homeless, cancer victims, or neglected animals. Fundraisers are thrown to raise the money needed to give back. Greek life is mainly about friendships, and creating bonds that last forever. If things get tough, your sorority sisters are supposed to be there for you. There's an event to meet and speak with the various sororities, and be sure to do so if these last few sentences sound good to you!

    I have recently joined a sorority, and I love it! Before, I thought i'd never join on because of the cost and because I did not want my grade to slip. But once someone explained it to me, the cost is not bad at all and the girls really help you keep your grades up.
