Janiya Bryant captured a sentiment shared by many of her fellow freshmen moving into the residence halls at Brenau University in Gainesville on Wednesday, Aug. 22. “They made it feel like home,” said Bryant, a graduate of Warner Robins High School, who plans to study mass communication. And Bryant’s mother, Elisha, expressed feelings shared by many of the parents who watched their daughters leave home for the first time to join the Women’s College. “It’s been emotional, exciting, bittersweet,” she said. “I’m excited for her and what the world has to offer her. I just want her to take it by the reins, take everything in and get everything from this great experience she’s going to have.”
