I really like Piedmont College. I think its a great way to meet many new people and make new friendships by all the opportunities they have available for students. I also love the dorms and I think they are very nice. I love the professors as well. There always there to help students whenever they need it which is great.
The housing at Piedmont College needs to be updated for satisfaction as well as health reasons. Many of the underclassman dorms have ant infestations, mold problems, and water damage. Piedmont does not allow you to live off campus if you play a sport. There is ONE kitchen at the village that barely works and the washer and dryers are highly unrelaiable. You are not allowd any type of cooking necessities unless you are in the village etc. The cafeteria food is not very good. Make sure you clear your schedule for at least 15-30 mins after you eat, you will have to go to the john. There has been undercooked chicken served as well as bugs found cooked in the food. You do not get a refund on any meals you do not use. It rains constantly and you will not get the college experience you are expecting to find. Highly do not reccomend
- very small class sizes (usually 10-30 students per class)
- most professors are nice, caring, and accessible during office hours
- for the most part, the staff is willing to answer questions you have or assists you with your needs
- campus is extremely safe
- students are closely knit, you are not just a number
- small campus
- located in rural, Northeast GA mountains; about 1.5 hours from ATL, 1.5 hours from Athens
- parking is bad; barely any parking spots
- roads around campus are more like driveways than roads (very narrow, poorly-paved roads)
- administration at Piedmont College is slow to notify students about major events happening (i.e. it took about a month for the campus to release COVID-19 statistics and many students had to advocate strongly to get the statistics released; the campus is slow to notify if inclement weather will prevent students from safely returning to class)
- wifi can sometimes be slow, and so can cell phone sevice
The class sizes are small and the professors really make the effort to get to know students. Professors are available during office hours and through email and endeavor to help students when they need help. The college also provides free tutoring services and opportunities for internships for students. Piedmont has a very active athletic program with most students on campus being involved in some form of athletics, but the college also has other clubs and organizations for students who are not athletes. The fine arts program is also a big part of campus life with various concerts and theater performances offered for students to attend for free.

If I went back in time and talked to my high school self the biggest thing I would make sure to tell myself it to relax. In high school I was very stressed about making the change, I was worried that I would be over welled or that I wouldn't make friends, or any one of a hundred other things would go wrong. The biggest thing I learned coming in was that everybody else worried about the same things, and that by relaxing and being myself I made a better first impression than by trying to do the "cool" thing. College is the next step in the rest of your life, and there are some really big changes and choices that you find yourself making, but your whole life doesn't need to be planed in a day. When you let yourself relax you learn more about yourself and those around you instead of just stressing to get though the day. That is why I am constantly telling my brother, who is a high school senior, to just relax, and to trust his choices.
i can honestly say that the worst thing about this school for me is only really how much it cost to go hear. i don't think we are over paying for our education it is just that i'm paying for school my self and i find it hard to pay the bills. o yeah and the internet acsess on camup is rediculous. more than hlf the time it doesn't work, and the art department is in shambles.
My classmates range from traditional to non-traditional moms to some of the funniest and weirdest people I've ever met.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the cost in which to attend. I feel that it cost way to much. Fincianal Aid does not provide a student enough money for the fours years one is here.
In comparsion to other schools there is not much to do on the weekends and most people go home or visit other places so there is not many people here on the weekends. If you don't play a sport then this is not the school for you.
I love the size. There aren't very many people who attend the school and it really helps to keep the class sizes down. The largest class I have been in at this school had 20 kids in it, the smallest was 4, including me. It leads to a lot of individual attention and help from the teachers if you need it.
Students who plan to attend Piedmont College should be open to new ideas and learn to think outside of the box. Also a potential student should venture out of their comfort zone and do things they wouldn't do in the past. Since Piedmont College offers a family atmosphere, being social is a good quality have to stay involved.
i like to tell them about how friendly everyone is on campus, how i like the small class sizes, and how the faculty is always there to help you if you ask for it. Also, there are many events through the year that you can go to to meet new people.
good if you like a small school in a scenic area
Piedmont is a conservative school. That should speak volumes to the people who would consider themselves different in any way. If you are a straight, white republican, you will do well here. If you are none of the above or not all of the above, then the best thing to do for sanity sake, is to keep your mouth shut, conform or find another school.
My school has the hardest nursing program in Georgia. A great fine arts department that produces awesome artists of all kinds. Sadly we also have a pack of arrests each year with various levels of drama involved.
