4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. There are measures in place to make sure nothing happens to anybody.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The RAs are the best and it really is a community. All the dorms do their own events to have fun. However, the rules are very strict, some being quite ridiculous.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are a lot of things to do on Belmont's campus. However, there is not much space for students to be active.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many local places to eat that are very delicious. However, the parking is terrible.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Belmont is quick to give a person financial aid, however they don't give away much. Even when you ask for more, they don't give you much. It is a constant struggle to pay for school and multiple loans must be taken out.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of old homes in Nashville. However, there is a lot of modern apartments being built. Which is nice, but the construction can be very annoying. There is not a lot of parking in Nashville.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Nashville is always bustling with music everywhere. There are shows every night that are fun local attractions. Nashville also has some very great restaurants and is very modern. However, there are some areas within Nashville that are outdorsy. There are some parks and lakes within the area. Nashville has very friendly people with that southern charm.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Lots of B-Po on their bikes.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: No aid, even though every other school I applied to provided me with a decent amount. I have been awarded a very small fraction for this coming year, but it basically only covers the cost of the tuition raise... so I am paying the same amount I did last year anyway.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: You either do it or you don't. Not a big deal at this school

1 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Is this a college for twelve year olds? Visitation check-ins, visitation passes on doorknobs, visitation hours... its all like my mom came to school with me.

4 College Junior

Athletics: D1 Basketball Team! Pretty cool for a tiny school like Belmont. Not a huge amount of school spirit, but I enjoy attending every home game I can

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I personally wouldn't choose Belmont again if I had known just how dead the social life is. I don't know, maybe I just haven't me the right people yet... Well see, I have a few more years to come to a final conclusion.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Hipsters... Hipsters everywhere. Obviously everyone has their own opinion on hipsters (I personally don't mind them as I do buy into their fantastic taste in music), but if you absolutely loathe them, this is not the place for you.

4 College Junior

Facilities: A large chunk of students attend Belmont for it's Entertainment and Music Business programs; which are among the best in the country.

2 College Junior

Facilities: Pretty much nonexistent. It's a dry campus so on the weekends no one is around really. The student body doesn't have a TON of school spirit for a school with a D1 Basketball Team. Games are still fun, but only if you really enjoy the sport and have friends who do as well. During the week (if its warm enough and the signs are not our front preventing it) many students (mostly male) will play sports on the lawn. That's about as "socially active" as the campus gets

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: If you or your friends do not have cars, the options are slightly more limited, but there are still things to choose from. PM (Sushi), Bongo Java (Coffee), International Market (Thai), Chago's (Mexican), and a few others are all right next the the Curb Event Center. And only about .5 miles away is the iconic Pancake Pantry, a long with come other favorite: Fido (coffee, breakfast, sandwiches), Provence (french sandwiches, soups, baked goods), and many more. But if you've got wheels, the world is your oyster!

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: Just terrible: the food quality is terrible and the way it is cooked is terrible. The hours are also very inconvenient. They are closed during prime eating hours (closed 9:30am - 11:30am... what?!) If you don't eat dinner before 6pm, they don't really put anymore fresh food out. I ate dinner at 5pm every night (and I felt like and elderly person) to make sure I at least got food that wasn't cold... then again I ate pizza or cereal for almost every meal after the burgers, chicken, and international stations gave me food poisoning. So overall, I would say "AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!"

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms are a very nice size compared to other schools I have visited. But the 1 thing I really hate about living on campus is the rules. If you want to have someone of the opposite sex in your dorm room, you must check them in at the front desk and put a visitors pass on your doorknob. Additionally, they have to be out of the room and checking out by 11pm on weeknights and 1am on weekends or else you get written up. I never had a guy in my room because no one wants to go through the trouble of this just to study together or watch a movie. The rules abut practice hours for musicians are also overly strict. You are only allowed to practice between 3pm-7pm, which is when most people have classes/work.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professor are extremely helpful, especially if you ask for it. The work load can be over bearing but I guess it comes with the schooling. I do wish that some professors would understand that not all students have their parents paying for their bills, schooling, etc. and that some of us do have 40 hour week jobs as well as families to take care of.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My specific major is Music Business and it is very interesting and thorough. The workload is a bit much but it is a lot of information to get into our heads before the semester is over.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone that I have seen dress to impress, whether they are impressing others or themselves.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. I have classes that last until the night time and walking to my car can be a bit scarey but I always see security walking around as well as other students.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live near the campus, but from what I hear the school doesn't help all that much with finding off-campus housing. They do list potentials on the Belmont website but I believe that is about it.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity on campus is amazing. I don't I have met a group of young aspiring students who are all about helping one another and getting to know someone out of their norm. It is very satisfying to know that you can go to school to learn instead of going to school and be judged.

Most Belmont students will tell you that if they had to do it over again, they’d choose Belmont every time. So, despite parking issues, rising tuition, and strict behavioral policies, students are truly glad to be here, and it shows. University president Dr. Robert Fisher (around here, he’s affectionately called “Bob the Builder”—you’ll figure it out when you see the construction trucks on campus) likes to say Belmont is a “small town in a big city.” Because it’s such a tiny school on an enclosed campus, the community atmosphere at Belmont is incredibly strong. Professors often give out their personal cell phone numbers to students who need extra help, and they genuinely want their students to succeed—not just in their classes, but in life. Most students find one or two professors in their major who become almost like surrogate parents. They’ll counsel you through the stress of finals and help you find fantastic internships. Because many professors are former professionals in whatever field they teach, they have experience and contacts that are immeasurably valuable to students —in this town, the people you know have the potential to open doors for you.

Nashville itself is probably one of the biggest selling points for the University. It’s an incredible town full of opportunities for young professionals in every major. Nursing students may do clinicals at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, one of the top hospitals in the world. Students who like to write might find a public relations internship at one of the music labels in town. And of course, if you want to pursue a career in the music business, there’s no better place to be. So is a Belmont education expensive? Yes. Make no mistake about it. But if you feel it’s the right place for you, you’ll leave knowing every penny was worth it.
