Classes on Brenau´s Gainesville, Norcross, and Fairburn campuses have been cancelled for Thursday, Jan. 13, due to continuing hazardous winter weather conditions for commuters. However, Augusta campus classes will go on as scheduled in spite of a previous erroneous report that they had been cancelled.

Faculty and staff should report to resume normal operations at 10 a.m., but employees are urged to exercise extreme caution and basic common sense in travelling to and from their jobs.

“The maintenance staff did an excellent job Wednesday in ice removal on the Gainesville campus, but there will still be icy areas that you should avoid both in parking and moving to and from your automobiles,” said Wayne Dempsey, Brenau executive vice president and CFO. “If road conditions prevent your safe travel to campus, notify your supervisor as soon as possible.”

Meanwhile, the performance by Mark Twain impersonator Dave Ehlert scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday in Thurmond-McRae Lecture Hall on the Brenau University Gainesville campus will go on as scheduled. The program is sponsored by Brenau University Learning and Leisure Institute (BULLI) and Friends of the Hall County Public Library. It is free and open to the public.
