Regional Events

Brenau graduates can be found all over the world. The Office of Alumni & Events encourages you to reach out to fellow Brenau alumni living in your area.

Alumni Leaders
Alumni volunteers are the backbone of the Office of Alumni & Events. Alumni volunteers:

  • Lead regional Nest and Interest Circles
  • Serve on the Alumnae Reunion Weekend steering committee and assist with registration
  • Host and plan reunion events
  • Serve as mentors for current students and young alumni
  • Speak at events and share their professional expertise
  • Encourage their peers to become active and generous alumni
  • Act as the face of the University in the greater community
  • Assist with student recruitment
  • Serve as visionaries and even University Trustees

President’s Lunches/Dinners
From time to time, the University’s President will schedule lunch or dinner events with alumni in cities across the country. Formal invitations will be mailed for these events.

Sporting Events
The Golden Tigers athletic teams travel all across the country for competition. Check your state page to the right to see when a Brenau sports team will be in your area. We always encourage alumni to attend and cheer on your Alma Mater!

Brenau Alumni Nests
Organized groups of alumni linked by common geographical area are known as Breanu Alumni Nests, a tribute to the Crow’s Nest on the Brenau campus in Gainesville, Georgia. The symbolic purpose of the Crow’s Nest has been to allow students to understand and appreciate the rising ranks of each class, from Freshman to Senior, and beyond. As alumni, your connection to Brenau and your rising rank through lifelong learning are as strong as ever.

Alumni Nests are organized in areas with at least 100 alumni, or smaller areas where a Nest president has volunteered to lead. Alumni from all Brenau campuses and all Brenau degree programs are invited to join their local Nest. Depending on the size and composition of each Nest, programming may be geared more heavily toward the Women’s College, Evening & Weekend, and/or Online program alumni, at the discretion of the Nest’s leadership team.

Interest Circles
Organized groups of alumni linked by common areas of interest are known as Interest Circles. Generally, Interest Circles are organized for groups of at least 100 alumni, or smaller groups where a Circle president has volunteered to lead. Interest Circles may revolve around a common academic major, previous participation in a Brenau campus organization, or areas of professional business. The goal of an Interest Circle is to provide a connection between the University and alumni who are passionate about their area of interest.
