Piedmont College Then & Now
Piedmont College has evolved greatly since its 1897 opening exercises for the J.S. Green Collegiate Institute in Demorest when the entire student body marched up the hill from the square to begin their studies.
Our Demorest campus is located in one of the finest outdoor recreation areas in the U.S. Students can enjoy nearby state and federal parks of North Georgia, or the restaurants and amenities of our Athens campus.
