Belmont has a beautiful campus. Students love showing it off when family and friends come to visit, and the administration takes pride in its upkeep. When the weather’s right, flowers are planted all around the campus, and the second they start to wilt, they’re replaced with a fresh batch. Students often joke that their tuition is going to the flower budget, but to the administration’s credit, the results are gorgeous. The path from the quad to the Bell Tower is frequently used for bridal party photo shoots in the spring. While Belmont isn’t very big, the campus has more than enough state-of-the-art facilities to keep students entertained. Underneath the Massey Business Center, a fully-equipped recording studio is available for students to book sessions. Ambitious music students might record their first EPs here, and they’ll usually recruit audio engineering majors to work the professional soundboard.
If you want to work off some extra energy, drop by the Beaman Student Life Center. The group fitness room hosts classes from ab sculpting to Zumba, and the weight room has plenty of treadmills and exercise equipment for students to use. Feeling adventurous? Climb the 30-foot rock wall and impress that cute girl in the lobby—the wall’s enclosed by glass windows so students can see in. The Curb Event Center is the most popular location for on-campus events. Home to the Showcase Series and the Bruins’ basketball and volleyball teams, its sheer size makes it a great location for outside events, as well. It’s hosted the Country Music Television Awards, keynote speaker Maya Angelou, and a 2008 presidential debate. And the best part? Because the events are on campus, Belmont students get to participate in it all.
