Belmont University is a very unique and diverse community of aspiring artists, teachers, engineers, nurses, etc. It is a very warm and accepting community, but the school also holds certain values in high esteem.

Belmont is a beautiful school in one of the most fun and exciting locations. There is so many opportunities to meet new people, try new things, and branch out both on and off campus. The professors are great and genuinely care about your education. All the programs do an awesome job of preparing you for your future career and getting you connected. Its not necessarily the typical college experience but you can find every type of person here and everyone here is very focused on actively working toward their goals. The only issues I would say are some strict policies associated with christian views, the lack of dining options, and the size of the gym.

Belmont is a unique environment that encourages students to pursue spiritual and educational excellence. They push you to be the best athlete, musician, person and student that you can be. Belmont is a university full of people that take you in as family and treat you as so. It's full of weird, quirky hipsters that nag you to listen to their latest EP, but they all end up famous so it's worth it.
