The right fit? That’s easy to fact check. As with any life-changing choice, if you’re thinking about completing your bachelor’s degree at Piedmont College in




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.


You will find a convenient mix of day and evening classes—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 jobs— earning money and building resumes on the spot.

Listen up. You can trust the voices of experience.

P C I S N O T YO U R N O R M “ Our professors make themselves available. They lend a helping hand and actually look forward to student inquiries. That assures I will have the skills and knowledge I need to succeed. “ Malcom Faust ’20, Education

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.
