Small School Life – If you can think of a hobby you enjoy, there's probably a club for it. Since we're in the middle of nowhere, clubs are about the only thing you can do some days. On the weekends the theater department has plays, though, everyone flocks to see them, and they are fantastic.
GB is definitely the closest-knit dorm; once you move across campus you'll probably end up missing the community of it.
One thing we LOVE to do is hang out at the Grill, especially on the nights it's open late. Better food than the caf, movie nights every week, and monthly performances by our improv troupe, Schticks and Giggles!
If you have the opportunity, take Dr. Davis' film class for your 200-level English course. It doesn't matter if you have to wake up and get in the registration line at 3 in the morning; it's totally worth it. Best class I've ever taken.

Our local cohort is located in a town that is slow paced but still close enough to head the big city of Atlanta. Tons to do there, concerts and nightlife. Locally there is a new entertainment complex that has skating, bowling, Go-Karts and lazier tag. So there's definitely fun to be had when bored!

Piedmont has a very cold winter, and a very warm summer. The best months are Fall and Spring by far, for the mountains provide enough of a chance for the students to acclimate to the weather changes. However, make sure to have warm clothes and be prepared for snow in the winter, we had over a foot of snow and classes were cancelled for a week in 2011!
