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!

I have just started my journey with Piedmont College as a nursing student. All of the faculty and staff has been nothing less than amazing. They have been supportive all the way through, and made sure I was set up for success. All of my professors during orientation and the first day of class have been thorough and clear with what they expect. I would recommend this college to anyone.
I like Piedmont College because the people who work there truly care about you, not only do they want to meet your academic needs, but your mental, physical, and personal needs as well. I also love that the classes are smaller (like high school) and there is more opportunity for one on one time with the professor.
