ntroduction 



College is not only about retaining information and 

taking tests. It is about expanding the mind to think more 

openly without judgment, discovering new t hincjs ai u I 

exploring new possibilities that create the art inspired by 

your dreams. College is an experience to grow and increase 

your knowledge. Thus I chose the theme of the hook, Create 

Discover Learn.

When I took over the magazine i wasn't really sure what 
to expect. I inherited a magazine that had been the 
recipien t of many awards, so I knew I had some big shoes 
to fill. I assembled a team of writers and creative minds 
that I thought would best serve what I had in mind. We 
got together and came up with an idea to bring a new, 
fresh face to Piedmon t It exemplifies the angles of 
stories and issues that may not be already covered. We 

search for topics that 
aren't mentioned a 
whole lot. We have 
tried to create a 
following through 
our work. We love 
the responses from 
the readers both 
positive and negative.

further justice through education, advocacy and service.

Going to the University of Nottingham was one of the best 
experiences I have had during college. Just to be able to see all 
these different cultures and people in one place was amazing. 
It just felt like everything was more laid back there. There 
was also the ease of traveling, which was wonderful. To be 
able to get on a bus and in a few hours be at a place you had 

\neverbeen before was awesome. 
\Going to class was also an experience, 
attended some classes that had 
nore than 100 people while others 
had less than 20. There were so 
many choices of classes and they all 
seemed interesting. Most of all I will 
'ememberall the memories I have 
x from going and if! had the chance I 
would do it again. 

Matt Jaclcson 

Going to the University of Nottingham was the most 
mind opening experience I had. I met people I would 
have never met without taking part in this experience. 
I was able, through my international friends, to learn 
about and take part in cultures from around the globe. 
The people I met were the real experience. The country 
of England is beautiful, but it is the people that I truly 
miss.Everypersonlmethada unique impact on my life 
that I will never forget.

Costa Rica was one of the 
best experiences of my 
life. I met people from all 
over the world there and 
made lifelong friends! The 
country was beautiful and 
the teachers were so kind! 
They were patient and used 
a variety of methods to 
make learning fun and easy. 





I plan on going back this 
May to study again and also 
to do an internship. I look 
forward to getting another 
opportunity to travel the 
country and appreciate the 
rare beauty that can only be 
found there.

j resident's Letter 



What will you remember about Piedmont? 

When you look back at this yearbook in a fewyears, 
what will you remember about your experience at 
Piedmont College? 

Will it be memories of waking early in your dorm 
room and walking across the Demorest campus to that 
8 a.m. English class? 

Or will it be memories of fighting 5 o'clock traffic in 
Athens to make it in time to your four-hour MBA. class? 

Or maybe, if you were enrolled in one of the many 
graduate education cohort classes,your memories of 
Piedmont will center on your own local school where you 
took classes with a group of fellow teachers. 

One thing is certain, memories of Piedmont will be 
different for different groups of students. That is because 
Piedmont has been redefined in recent years. We are 
still the small, liberal arts college in the mountains 
that perhaps your parents and grandparents knew, but we are more than that. Even at the 
Demorest campus, the curriculum has changed dramatically with the addition of exciting 
new programs in theatre, mass communications, and nursing, just to name a few. 

At the Athens campus, all students commute, and the emphasis is on career-oriented 
majors primarily in business, education and criminal justice. 

But no matter which "version" of Piedmont you remember, I know thatyou will all have 
common memories of our unusually strong faculty; those "Aha!" moments in the classroom 
when a difficult concept suddenly becomes clear; and the time when you first realize that 
you — as an individual and as a college graduate — can have an enormous effect on the lives of 
others. 

Those are the memories that I hope each of you take away from Piedmont College. 
Those are the memories that count.
