5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health services are wonderful and right when you need them. Security is excellent

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with the program I'm in (Design Communications). The staff is great, there are lots of resources and the environment is challenging and stimulating.

Health & Safety: Security is great at Belmont. I always feel safe and at orientation they make sure you add the security numbers in your phone and you can sign up for text/email alerts.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Basketball has the biggest fan base on campus. It's a pretty big deal when your team goes to the Sweet 16! I'd say baseball is the next popular sport. There's a lot of school spirit at our sporting events.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It depends on what dorm you are in, but for me it was just okay. I was in a forced triple which means it's a room for two, but the university put three people in it. My room was also one the smaller of the doubles so it was very crowded. The whole dorm sort of felt like a hotel. The dorm I was in is called Patton and it's so big there's not much of a community as some of the other dorms have, like Hail Hall. But for the most part, they are fairly nice dorms and compared to other schools, they are pretty spacious (when you're not forcing three people in a two person room!)

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Nashville, TN can get a little wishy washy at times but it is usually always very comfortable. It may get hot during the day at times but at night a cold front rolls down from the mountains making the perfect night time climate. The winter is not harsh at all. It snows only a handful of times, just enough so that you still get excited for it.

Facilities: Belmont is absolutely outstanding not just in the experience that you get from its facilities and the atmosphere that it commands, but visually it is a gorgeous institution to attend.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Attending Belmont, you do not need much transportation if you live on campus. It as all relatively close together. Your longest walk from one side to the other may take 7-9 minutes. Your student ID gets you free access to the public bus system which is great if you don't have a car.

Computers: Belmont's computer labs are usually relatively available. One of the big pros of the labs is that they offer desktop PC AND iMacs. People definitely have a preference on which type of unit they want to use and certain programs will run on one and not the other so that is a very neat aspect of the computer labs.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Belmont's campus has just about everything you could think of asking for in an educational facility (You'd expect it with the tuition you're paying). From recording studios to a rock wall to a performance center, they've got it.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Belmont is stereotyped as a "hipster" college. If that is your scene, then you will fit right in. If that is not your scene, then you will still fit in. You will see girls in floral skirts with boots and grandma sweaters. You might see guys in tank tops, a nice pair of boot-cut jeans, and clunky boots. Many people are quite artsy. I would say there are plenty of attractive people of both sexes.

Drug Safety: As a dry campus, the enforcement for drugs and drinking is decently enforced campus-wide. Like most colleges, drinking is incredibly common but usually takes place at off campus houses or hidden in a dorm room. You will not see anyone openly drinking as that could result in a violation. Since Belmont is a liberal-arts college with plenty of musicians, smoking is very common but is the only drug that is frequent. All other drugs are not ever discusses or seen at parties.

5 College Senior

Majors: Internships with Belmont are nothing short of impressive. While we are not allowed to receive pay, the experience and connections gained are well worth the time and effort. As a psychology major (as with most other majors), I was able to get three hours of course credit for my internship. I interned at a recognized school for children with learning disabilities. My friends in the Music Business and Entertainment Industry Studies programs have interned with VH1, Saturday Night Live, and the Ryman Auditorium. Nashville and Belmont have a great array of internship opportunities.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The cafeteria at Belmont provides an array of options for students, including several dairy-free products and vegetarian options. The variety within the "caf" is average for a university of this size; however, I eventually got tired of eating there everyday. I would suggest to choose the meal plan that allows you the most declining points. These can be used at the Curb Cafe, library cafe, and other locations on campus with better meal options.

4 College Senior

Majors: The psychology department at Belmont is wonderful. Unlike many undergraduate psychology programs, the Belmont program has a heavy emphasis on research-- meaning a great preparation for graduate programs. The equipment and facilities is useful for conducting experiments; the department will also order any equipment needed for undergraduate student research. The department is fairly small yet personable.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Belmont is known for its great basketball team. Students attend home games, but seldom travel to support the team. It is more popular to attend friends' concerts at local venues than for the student body to attend a sport's game.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are SO many choices local and chain its such a tourist town that the choices are endless

3 College Junior

Transportation: There is a lot of traffic but it is a big city so its expected! transportation is nice and there is a parking garage on campus

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Beautiful City, everyone is so polite and there is a never ending list of things to do and see. Many local spots in the middle of music city!

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: These guys don't play around with drugs at all. Yeah of course they'll be around because it's college, but they won't be anywhere on campus.

College Sophomore

Athletics: This is my first year there but I hear that they are very good in basketball!

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: This is my first year going to Belmont but campus life seems really great! Can't wait!

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: You definitely need a car, or there is no other way to get around. Nashville is huge, and you cannot rely on bicycle or buses.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Belmont has a very beautiful campus and the facilities are awesome.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Very unhealthy. If you keep track of your weight you have to be extremely careful, or just avoid eating on campus.

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.
