Get involved


Piedmont College Athens would like to welcome new and old students to the spring 2014 semester.

Piedmont has a lot of activities available to help students feel laid back and have a good time. Student activities give the opportunity for individuals to meet new people wind down, and have fun.

Student Activites Director Zach Churchill has many things planned for the semester and is nudging any students with activity ideas to speak to him.

Every Tuesday and Thursday there is a Lion Fit Fitness Bootcamp Class. This provides a good weekly workout for any fitness level. This is for any student and those whose New Year’s resolution was to get healthier this year. The class is from 4 to 5 p.m.

Every Wednesday there is pickup basketball available for any skill level. Students can make their own teams and play an organized game, or play other basketball games such as “21.” Basketball is held from 4 to 6 p.m.

Piedmont Athens also offers clubs for students to join and get involved in.

The Outdoor Club adopted a road in Downtown Athens through Athens Adopt-A-Highway and have cleanups scheduled for Jan. 25, Mar. 15 and Apr. 12. They meet in the gym at 11 a.m. on those days and ride together to the site. The cleanup takes less than two hours. Students do not have to be a member of the Outdoor Club to participate.

Also, Athens Campus Activity Board (ACAB) is hosting “ACAB Thursdays” the first Thursday of each month, all semester.

ACAB members will be handing out free coffee and waters to students in the lobby. ACAB is currently making plans to volunteer at the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, as well as go on trips to the Georgia Aquarium and the Bodies Exhibit in Atlanta.

ACAB’s Springfest/Open House is scheduled for Mar. 22 and plans are well under way for that event as well.

The Future Health Professionals Club will meet regularly throughout the semester but a date has not been set for their next meeting.

Churchill said, “Students can join clubs at any time, simply attend a meeting and talk with me. Also, students are always welcome to start a club and can see me to discuss the details and process of doing so”.

Student activities are available and if anyone has any activities that they would want on campus, please email or see Churchill.
