ACADEMIC & SOCIAL CLUBS

Athens Campus Activities Board "ACAB" is the premier student organization at Piedmont College, covering a wide spectrum of duties and events. Activities include fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, collecting non-perishables for the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, planning on campus events like the Student Activities Fair, and organizing trips to theme parks, sports venues, and more!

Athens Campus Community Garden was inspired by the increasingly popular movement of urban agriculture and the benefits of organically grown vegetables. In this spirit, the garden was created using recycled and repurposed materials, further reducing the impact on the environment. The garden is maintained by students, faculty, and staff volunteers and any surplus produce is donated to local non-profits.

Future Health Professionals Club was created to provide students interested in healthcare professions with opportunities to interact with one another through guest speakers, field experiences, and volunteerism. The club hosts a blood drive each semester, coordinates the annual Piedmont College Health Fair, and sponsors an annual trip to the Bodies Exhibit in Atlanta, Georgia.

Outdoor Club is dedicated to enjoying and preserving all that nature has to offer. The club hosts an annual whitewater rafting trip to Ocoee, Tennessee, home of the 1996 Olympic Kayaking course in addition to monthly cleanups of the Piedmont College Outdoor Club Adopt-A-Road located in Downtown Athens. Other activities include zombie runs, obstacle runs, kayaking, hiking, and preservation projects.  

Psychology Club is the newest addition to Student Life on campus and is already making a difference. In addition to hosting events such as movie nights and discussion forums, the Psych Club sponsors "Stress Relief Week" at the end of each semester that includes professional chair massage, stress management workshops, relaxation rooms, and free goodies to help power through a long night of studying.

Washington Gladden Society seeks to support Piedmont students to collectively address social justice concerns of interest and importance to the student body, Athens community, and beyond. The Society sponsors an Open Mic each semester as well as hosting guest speakers and discussion forums both on and off campus.
