I am a former student of PBC andQuite BrightEducation
I am a former student of PBC and my biggest complaint is that the school does not have the right Accreditation and does not inform its students of this until it is too late to do anything about it.I attended two semesters,believing the education I was paying for was not just accredited by other Christian schools--I assumed it was recognized as a true college,but it isn't.There are certain types of Accreditation needed to be able to transfer your credits to certain universities--the university I'm currently attending wouldn't even look at PBC's transcript because it doesn't have the state Accreditation like most universities do.Essentially the education I received here is worthless and cost me and my parents thousands of dollars.Beware and think twice before coming here--Accreditation by Christian colleges is not going to help you if you seek to continue your education at the public,state university level.

Dr. Jerry Hullinger, theAverageReligion/Religious
Dr. Jerry Hullinger, the Biblical languages minor, and the counseling minor are the only reasons I am staying at Piedmont. There are not many reasons to come or stay. The music is probably a good program as well, but I am not a music person.

Piedmont is an excellent school if your desireBrightEducation
Piedmont is an excellent school if your desire is to be in ministry or education (elementary, secondary English, or physical education). It is a small school, so there is a family-like atmosphere, where students and faculty truly care about one another.

If the prospective student is not planning to teach or be in vocational ministry, Piedmont is probably not the place to go. The best thing about PBC: more emphasis is put on the students and their education than the facilities themselves. Yes, the buildings should be in good condition, but people are more important.
