(Gainesville, Ga.) This past week marks the second “Snow Week” Brenau University students have enjoyed because of cancelled classes due to the harsh winter weather.
This go round, there was definitely more snow and ice on the ground which made it difficult to get around campus. Brenau faculty and staff urged students to stay indoors except for emergencies. While most of Brenau’s offices and facilities were closed, Hopkins Dining Hall was opened from 11-2 p.m. for brunch and from 5-6 p.m. for dinner.
The two to three snowfalls we received lasted several days, by Thursday afternoon, quite a lot of it was beginning to melt. The freezing temperatures of Thursday night allowed some of the snow to remain and made it even more difficult for Brenau Facilities staff to shovel walk ways but they were working from early this Friday morning until it was finished.
I would like to applaud the men and women who did their best to keep Brenau students fed, warm, safe, and dry. Thank you all for making what could have been a dire situation just another reason why I love Brenau University.
