4 College Freshman

Computers: The labs are nice but I prefer my own printer and computer to use whenever I want.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dining is great! Nashville has a little bit of everything. Asian, honky tonk bars, fast food and coffee shops.

College Freshman

Nightlife: There are some parties at Belmont but there aren't really any of the typical college "ragers".

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Nashville is a great town to live in. There is constantly music playing, great sports and quiet coffee shops. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is great at Belmont, they are especially known for their philanthropy. I am thinking about joining a sorority next semester.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Belmont's basketball team has ranked fairly high this year. Us Bruins love our team and aren't afraid to show it.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I usually use my own car. Taxis are expensive and hard to find sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Belmont is known for and built on Christian values. The staff and curriculum reflects that. There are people at the school who don't agree with those values and Belmont doesn't force certain beliefs on to them.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off-campus housing options available

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think the greek life here is good and does not have the negative view that many other schools' greek life have

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't really take part in the nightlife at the school

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty good for the most part, but the older dorms can be frustrating.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of things to see and do in Nashville.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I thought I would not need a car on campus, but I regret it because there really are not many places you can walk to.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity here. I think mostly because of the insane price of tuition it seems that mostly white, upper middle class students attend.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Sometimes I notice people with weed, or hear stories of other people using it on campus and/or getting caught.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are great and I feel like I am being challenged.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus feels pretty safe most of the time, but the lighting at night could be a lot better.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There really isn't much use of public transportation. I only get around by using my friends car.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I don't know as much about the difficulty of getting into the song-writing programs or commercial instruments, but getting into music business or any other majors is easy. If you list it as your major, you're in that program.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The teachers really do care about you, and really want to get you a job. They're extremely engaged in the business world around the Nashville area, so they have a lot of connections.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: People that are in sororities/fraternities love it. I think greek life is really growing. Currently there are only 5 sororities, so there aren't many options, but they're all very accepting of many different types of people.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There really isn't much diversity on campus, ethnicity-wise. For political beliefs, it is extremely diverse. There are people from the south who are extremely conservative and religious, and then people from everywhere else that are major liberals. So in that sense it's very diverse.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You don't have to participate if you don't want to. You really have to search it out if you want to go to a party or take part in drug activity. I know people do smoke, but you really don't hear much about it. You just see people smoking cigarettes everywhere. The real places to go to get drunk are house parties and shows, which you have to know people to get into.

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.
