Academic Events

Baccalaureate is a service honoring the graduating class, held each spring. During the service, an address in the is delivered by a faculty member or respected leader in the community. Faculty and graduates process in cap and gown for the ceremony.

Commencement exercises are held three times per academic year: spring, summer, and fall. Graduates make dreams come true as they walk across the stage to be handed their well-earned diplomas.

Held each fall, Convocation marks the ushering in for all freshman students at Piedmont.

Welcome Week is held each August for all faculty and staff, and serves as an orientation for new Piedmont faculty and staff.
