I am in my first semester of Graduate School at Piedmont College, and so far, my experience has been wonderful. The professors are knowledgable, the classes are informative, and my classmates are eager to learn. I am taking classes both at the Athens campus as well as online, and the facilities are excellent, especially considering the Athens campus is not the main location. I have been impressed by the faculty and staff since the beginning of the application process. Every time I had a question, I was greeted over the phone by a cheerful, helpful employee who was ready to help. Great overall place to obtain either undergraduate or graduate degrees!

Small school with a lot of opportunities. Sports, arts, and activities are all available. Lot of potential for students here!
Piedmont College is an outstanding school. Their push for students to really learn is the most important thing at Piedmont. Teachers are amazing and always I mean always willing to work with the students despite the circumstances. This school is not a big school, but it is large enough for one to get their fitbit steps in!
