3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Belmont is a "dry campus," although I know of many people who drink on campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on Belmont's campus. Because it is such an "enclosed" campus, it is much more obvious if someone is walking around that has no business being on campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved almost all of my classes at Belmont over the past 3 years. The professors are extremely dedicated, experienced, and genuinely care about their students' success.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from Belmont is high, but the value of a MUSIC degree is much higher.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I love Greek life at Belmont, however I hate the way that it is run. The chapters are WAY too big, simply because Belmont doesn't allow for chapters to say "no" to anyone.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Belmont simply does not have enough on-campus housing for the volume of its student body. Almost all freshman live on campus, but many sophomores are forced to move off campus simply because there isn't enough housing.

Athletics: Belmont is not exactly known for its athletics, however our basketball team has had significant success over the past several years and really put Belmont on the "sporting map."

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek Life here is somehow low-key and a big part of campus life. Like, there's little to no pressure to be in a sorority or fraternity, even though a lot of people are. They actually are held in pretty high regard most of the time, too, because mostly what they do is community service (and Greek Sing, which at a musical school you can bet your britches is amazing!) and occasionally walk around in groups wearing fancy dresses/tuxes because they're having some dance that weekend.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Belmont. In my two years there, I have not felt that I have been in any sort of danger.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Belmont. Though there are times where I wish there were more parties and activities, I like the size and overall the quality of the school. I also enjoy the people that are there.

Campus Housing: On-campus housing is great. They have wonderful living facilities. Some are very high-quality. I have had a wonderful experience with on-campus housing at Belmont.

Athletics: The only real sport that is Belmont focuses on is basketball. I often wish there were football games that I could attend. Athletics are not an important part of campus life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Belmont. The campus is small, but very beautiful. And the professors are very helpful and I feel like I am learning a great deal from them.

Academics: They're fine. Not bad, but not stellar.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: It's bad. The administration has continually refused to allow a gay-straight alliance on campus. If you do not follow the brand of Christianity the school preaches, let alone, a non-christian, it can feel very awkward. Belmont is also nearly 100% white.

Drug Safety: It's fine. The school focuses far too much on mindless policy enforcement with safety and student health as an afterthought.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Saftey is fine. Health services are terrible. You are better off just pushing through whatever you have than visiting for help. A friend was diagnosed with mono by a doctor after the campus health center had insisted that it was a cold for over a month. Health services will also refer students to the disciplinary process if they come in to get help with any sexual health issue. The school also fails to provide condoms and does not allow them to be sold in the pharmacy. There have been mass-outbreaks of food poisoning stemming from the caf that the school has failed to address and have instead brushed them off claiming that it was "just a stomach virus".

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had a few fairly good professors and a few absolutely terrible professors, but most are average. The class sizes are small and most are lecture based. A number of teachers in the Curb college only read off of their powerpoint for the entire class. I find that the history and the political science professors are absolutely fantastic, but the Curb college faculty are a mixed bag.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are nice and the sense of community is great (especially in the older, historic dorms) however, there are a number of absurd and strictly enforced rules, the worst of which is visitation hours.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Other than the men's basketball team, you wouldn't know that we even fielded sports teams. The rec center and the gym are new but are small and not furnished well.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Decent, teachers are great but the administration is absolutely atrocious. The school's enforcement of more religiously centered rules (visitation hours for the opposite gender, etc.) is draconian.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: While I don't like walking across campus in the dark, I have never felt very unsafe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Belmont helps students to make connections with employers in jobs that the students are seeking.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes are incredibly interesting while also being incredibly helpful and important.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
