  • Online: Counseling Services Mindfulness Series

    Have you been looking for a way to cope with the daily stressors of being a student? Join Counseling Services for online sessions to learn how to manage stress with mindfulness. Research shows that practicing mindfulness is beneficial in many areas, including:

    • better sleep
    • lower stress levels
    • improved attention
    • dealing with depression and anxiety

    Sessions

    Through practice and discussion, learn to strengthen your ability to “begin again” in the present moment. Whether you are brand new to mindfulness or have been practicing for years, these sessions are for you. Designed specifically for students, each session focuses on a different area of mindfulness practice. Attend one or all sessions.

    All sessions are on Thursday from 10:30–11:30 a.m.

  • Sign Up for the Tuition Payment Plan

    To help you meet your educational expenses, Central Piedmont is proud to offer the tuition payment plan as a convenient budget plan.

  • Priority Registration for Spring

    If you are working towards a for-college-credit degree, diploma, or certificate, priority registration can help you graduate on time. You can register for classes once you have enrolled, attended orientation, and met with an academic advisor. Once priority and open registration end, you can still register for courses in sessions that haven't started yet. Learn more about how to register for classes and session start dates.

    You cannot register during priority registration if you are on academic probation, academic suspension, or are a current high school student in the Career and College Promise Program. If you cannot register during priority registration, you can start registering during open registration. If you are a non-credit continuing education student, find continuing education registration information.

    Your registration is not final until you have paid your balance due. Check payment dates and methods. You can still register and pay for classes online during times when the college is closed.

  • Theatre: "Almost, Maine"

    Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. In fact, it’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So, it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend —almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream, which the Central Piedmont Theatre troupe will perform on-stage in the Dale F. Halton Theater, to be streamed live on the Central Piedmont Arts’ social media pages.

  • Theatre: "Our Place"

    The unassuming location of a dock extending out onto a small lake serves as the backdrop for five different stories, including a young couple; a young woman and her dad; a man and his disagreeable family; a couple experiencing relationship difficulties; and a teenager experiencing hardships who is joined by his six-year-old sister. The entire ensemble gathers on the dock for a poetic epilogue and discovers the true meaning of “Our Place” — both comedic and tragic.
