4 College Junior

Academics: I have never experienced an English Program where it was so easy to contact professors, department chairs, etc. The faculty has been so enthusiastic with career planning, evening meeting to learn about me as a student. I worried to program wouldn't be given as much attention as music, as it is a dominantly musical school, but my worries were for naught.

4 College Junior

Weather: You get some snow, and summers can be very hot. Even still, people are out and enjoying themselves. I never felt like I was inconvenienced socially or academically.

Off-Campus Housing: Housing at this schools is about what you would expect anywhere else. At times, it is hard to find, like the beginning of semester when it is peak searching time. However, the buildings are close and very convenient, always worth it.

Campus Housing: The atmosphere of campus is great. There are so many interesting people and opportunities, you are constantly finding new things you enjoy. It is a wonderful place to explore yourself.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Aid is available, but it is normal student financial aid. They will work with you, but scholarships are very, very few because it is a private school.

Parking: The parking lots are plentiful and clearly marked. It's easy to part close to whatever class you need, for free or a small fee. If your meter runs out, though, you can expect a ticket. The campus police have timed-out-meter radar.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys that you find at this school are more artistic than what you find at any public school. Most students (male and female) are interested in Music Business so most are always playing an instrument, or writing and producing their own songs. Both genders at Belmont are to be described as hipsters, which on some level is very true. Depending on where you spend most of your time on campus, you will agree. You can find all sorts of types of people on campus from all over the country. None of my closest friends are from the same state that I grew up in.

Weather: Nashville weather is nothing to complain about. I come from a place where it snows a lot and to not have to worry about snow is a nice feeling. Although, when it does snow a little bit, most people in Nashville do not know how to control their vehicle in such conditions. Other than that, the summers/early fall are extremely hot and humid.

Transportation: Belmont does not have a bus system but after all, it is a small campus.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is available, reasonably priced, and convenient, but the enforcement is a little too strict.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy the major I am in. The classes are just hard enough to give me a challenge, but not so much that I get frustrated and want to quit. I am fortunate to have such amazing instructors that deal with my every question and concern about what life will bring to me.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The program I applied for was very easy to get into. The major Belmont concentrates on is music, so a major in communication was not as difficult to obtain. The only difficulty I faced was figuring out what to write about in the university application essay.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It's certainly stricter than a lot of colleges since it's a dry campus, but we're in a big city so it's not a big deal cause there are a ton of great bars and restaurants and a ton of students live off campus so if it's your scene you can find it.

Transportation: The Bus is free to all students, but it's hit or miss and not always convenient.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Teams are really good, but sports aren't a major priority amongst the student body.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Belmont takes a lot of things too seriously in my opinion. If I wanted to have one of my best friends over in my dorm room to hang out who is opposite gender, I couldn't because Belmont won't allow visitors after 11pm on most nights which is extremely early for college students.

Diversity: Belmont tries to accept people of all ethnicities. I do believe it is harder for certain ethnicities, statistically speaking, to afford Belmont therefore making it less diverse than I'd like to see.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Good mix, athletes, music, hipsters, very few locals

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Pretty strick. Private conservative Christian School

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: When I was at the school the Audio/Video department was small but now they are starting a film program that will be really good. I was the first class to attend "Belmont West" and now it's a booming option for those wanting to come to Los Angeles for study or after graduation. I started with a Music Business major which was and is a strong program.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The students and professors are respectable people and most are interested in their studies on campus. It's not uptight but it's not a party atmosphere either.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: The cafeteria is good but that and a little snack bar were the only options when I was attending. I think there are a few more options now but it's not a wide variety. Being in Nashville though, there are plenty of good restaurants in the city.

1 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Nothing is happening on the campus at night unless there is a scheduled event. It is in a city though so there is plenty to do in Nashville but the campus itself is pretty quiet overall.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There is an honor code that Belmont University student abide by and as a result the collegiate environment is one of honesty and integrity.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of deals to be had with regard to off-campus housing. You have to do your research and due diligence, it will pay off.

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.
