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

Josy - 10/12/2020

Pros - 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 Cons - 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

Carson - 08/23/2020

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.

Piedmont College overall is a great academic environment with almost no distractions. No parties on campus and an alcohol-free institution. The school is not diverse with less than 10% of the student population African-American. There is no football team but all other sports teams are highly competitive in NCAA DIII conferences. The food on campus has little taste, but there is a small variety of the types of food served. The professors are very helpful and will commit their time in assisting students in need. There is a free, on-campus, tutoring center where students can obtain extra help. The institutions facilities are in great shape and the campus is taken care of.

Piedmont College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Piedmont College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Piedmont College is 57%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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.

  7. What's unique about your campus?

    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.

  11. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    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.
