Athens, it’s key to weigh the details. From big picture concerns such as location (close to home, close to work) and faculty quality (unmatched) to small make-life-easier perks like parking (ample and free) and access to coffee spots (including a great one right here on campus), see if the realities match your expectations.
More than 98.73% of Piedmont students receive financial aid.
Here are a few good starting points.
You have access to the Athens Transit System (so getting around town is easy).
Like all Piedmont College students, you have the opportunity to participate in outstanding programs like Travel Study and Maymester.
KEEPING THINGS FLEXIBLE
You will find a convenient mix of day and evening classesâ€”depending primarily on the major.
Centrally located to classes and activities, the new Athens Campus Library offers the space, resources and support needed for academic success. Plus, you are free to use the library at the University of Georgia.
Things are always happening around here. Everything from honor societies, the Urban Garden Club, to charity walks downtown.
Many students have campus jobsâ€” earning money and building resumes on the spot.
Listen up. You can trust the voices of experience.

BOTH SIDES OF THE COIN What can I say? I wanted to become a nurse, and I wanted to stay in Athens. Piedmont was the clear choice. I’m totally confident in my education. And totally loving all that my hometown has to offer.
E X A C T LY W H AT I WA N T E D After my Associates Degree, I carefully considered where to finish my bachelor’s. I looked for a school where I would be seen and heard—where I would get smart advice. Piedmont Athens was the answer.
