1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I can't explain how awful Sodexo is. If I were a student, I would get my doctor to write me a note to get out of it, or at least only 5 meals a week.

Transportation: Public Transit in Nashville needs some major improvements. I have been stranded multiple times because the buses just aren't reliable.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life at Belmont is much different than other schools. They are not allowed to have houses, so partying isn't into play on campus. The fraternities and sororities are very school spirited and keep the hipsters at bay.

Facilities: Could use a larger gym, but all in all the facilities are pretty good. The recording studios are excellent. Beaman SLC is a pretty good place to hangout.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: We are in a city so rent is a bit hire than most places but it's not outrageous. Belmont is in a neighborhood so there are a lot of houses for rent around

Academics: Music Industry is scary but so exciting. Most professors have significant experience in the Industry.

3 College Junior

Academics: Not the most difficult school, but not a diploma mill either. Have to put in some work if you want to do well. Professors are fairly good. Biggest thing at Belmont is to take advantage of the opportunities. They would much rather see you have a B average and spend time networking in the Industry rather than have all A's but have no life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Belmont University has an outstanding basketball team. The school spirit and support for our teams is very high and truly adds to the college experience.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Belmont has not been extremely helpful with financial issues. I have been to the financial aid office several times and alway am still seeking out advice for scholarships and aid for my tuition.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining hall is average, you could say, it gets boring and the food is iffy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are alright. Some are new and others are older, almost all freshman live on campus. There are more options for upperclassmen, like apartment style but its overpriced and expensive.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I lived in a duplex on Battlefield Drive which was biking distance to the school. I also lived in an apartment in Bellevue which was driving distance from the school. Both were priced well and nice places to live. I found them through my boyfriend.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Campus life is not as much of a party atmosphere as other schools but there are a lot of good people who attend Belmont. It has an academic and musical talent vibe. The fact that it's set in Nashville is also great for music and music business majors. If you are a Christian, this is a great school because the religion department is wonderful. Lots of non Christian people come here too though.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Calypso Cafe is one of my favorite places to eat. Every time I come back to town from LA I go there. They have 2 locations, one is close to downtown and the other is near 1000 Oaks Mall. It's caribbean food.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you're under 21, don't expect to have fun in Nashville. If you don't like country or hipster music, expect to have a terrible time in Nashville.

2 College Freshman

Academics: I feel like I haven't left high school. Higher level thinking is not required to do well at Belmont, which I find quite discouraging. Also, Belmont discriminates based on religion while hiring teachers, so they filter out possibly more qualified professors.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most softer drugs are easy to find if you try. Harder drugs are practically non-existent.

1 College Freshman

Academics: Belmont over-admits Audio Engineering Technology majors. There is no room for everybody to graduate within 4 years.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Belmont has several different food options, but only two full dining options. The food is fairly high in quality, but sometimes lacking in variety. They are building new dining facilities currently, so there will most likely be a marked improvement in the next couple of years. There are many different options as far as meal plans and flex dollars, including options to use flex dollars at many restaurants close by.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The workload is manageable but challenging. Professors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. There are a vast number of internship opportunities, and many of these internships tie into multiple areas of interest.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a high number of computers in the library that work quite well, and at most times of the day are available to all students. The computer lab has a smaller number, but higher quality computers. It is definitely advised to have a personal computer, both for academic and social reasons.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not yet held an internship through Belmont, however almost every upperclassman I have spoken with has given high praise of the internship program here. The connections held by many of the professors and other faculty members are impeccable, and they are almost always more than willing to help their students in obtaining lucrative positions.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a Marketing and Entrepreneurship double major. I have had excellent classes that are extremely relevant to my intended career, and have done a great job of setting me up for success. I came in as a Music Business major, and definitely enjoyed the classes I took as part of the Mike Curb College of Music Business and Entertainment. My transition from CEMB to the Business College was seamless, and I had great advising in the decision to switch. My professors have been very knowledgeable and helpful in and out of the classroom. I hope to use what I learn in an applied setting as an independent artist, and potentially work with other entrepreneurial ideas as well. The job market for entrepreneurship is really what you make it, but Belmont does a great job of creating opportunities and making connections that will be helpful after graduating.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: As a transfer student, I was not eligible to receive any Belmont Scholarships which made it important for me to look at outside scholarships.

Campus Strictness: When I was there, girls weren't allowed in boys dorms and vice versa certain times of the day. I thought that was a good thing though.

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.
