Worst Of

  1. 1
    Most of the alternative eateries (aside from the caf) on campus serve subs. That gets old after a while.
  2. 2

  3. 3
    The sporadic weather-one day it's blazing hot, the next it's freezing cold and wet.
  4. 4
    Tuition-it's high and seems to get higher every year.
  5. 5
    Visitation rules within on-campus housing
  6. 6
    Construction! Belmont's constantly expanding, and unfortunately, the equipment makes noise-a lot of noise.
  7. 7
    Lack of practice rooms for music students. It can be hard to schedule a time when there are so many students wanting to use the same space.
  8. 8
    Parking-the universal headache on campus

    Lack of athletic school spirit
  10. 10
