I transferred to Piedmont College as a Junior student after being accepted to their nursing program and I LOVE IT. I wish that I had begun my college experience at Piedmont. The campus is small enough to know just about everyone but big enough to include a variety of different interests, groups, and activities. The on campus housing at Piedmont is so nice and the food is delicious! My favorite part about Piedmont are the small classroom sizes and how much the professors really care about their students. Outside of class, I love attending sporting events. Piedmont is perfectly located around mountains, lakes, and other outdoor adventures. I wouldn't change a thing about this school, except maybe the parking.

Everything about Piedmomt is warm and welcoming! My first year of college was exceptionally better than I anticipated. The process of enrolling to financial aid was all made easy by the staff at Piedmont. Every staff member always greets you with a smile and a helpful hand when you need it. The teachers go above and beyond to help out their students. The classroom setting is always filled with a great learning environment. The pace of the classes is just right. As an art student, I would like to brag on how well the art department puts everything together and constantly meets the needs of students. As a freshman, experiencing my first year on campus and at home due to the corona virus, went smoothly. Everyone worked diligently to satisfy the needs and learning environment needed to make it through the semester!
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!
