3 College Freshman

Administration: Do not even think about doing or being anywhere near any kind of drug while on campus. Your ass will be expelled. They do not mess around with that. There is a 3 strike rule for being caught with alcohol.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Patton as a freshman and I loved it. My only complaint was that it forced me to consume the caf food.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm not the most amazing student and I got a scholarship for $3000 a year. It hardly covers anything, but I was not expecting anything more.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I'm not a picky eater, but I find Belmont's caf to be pretty not good. The only meal I would enjoy was my morning omelette (except on Saturdays, no omelettes available), but that was a hit or miss depending on who was making it. Lunch can be alright if you get there at the right time, or if there are several people touring campus that day.

For the other campus options, those aren't too great either. The Chickfila is and insult to real Chickfilas and the Papa Johns hardly ever has pizza. Mcallister's is probably your best bet, but it's pricy for the quality of the food and isn't always quick. On the other side of campus there is a not real Starbucks and a Sandella's. I've had trouble with the not real Starbucks, as they don't often put espresso in drinks that are supposed to have espresso. The lines also tend to be long, but it is the only Starbucks like thing for a few miles so you just deal with it. The only thing I have to say for Sandella's is that it is not yummy or cheap. Peace

5 College Freshman

Administration: Extremely strict, definitely uphold their values

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A little expensive for a college student to be able to afford

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Vanderbilt knows how to turnup

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Belmont is in the heart of food stores/ restaurants

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Cost of attendance is too much- would like more aid

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Subway for life! Affordable, fresh, healthy, clean

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Feels as though you're living in a luxurious hotel

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's Nashville! Tons of places, no student discounts that I'm aware of though

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As a transfer student, I got absolutely zero financial aid. I'm trying, but nobody I talk to knows how to help me. They always have to "ask their boss" or "email my information to someone else" and it is exhausting going into the financial aid office multiple times and getting the same answer. I can't do this on my own and nobody is willing to work with me.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Compared to other schools, I think the food is pretty great. Lots of variety of places to eat and ways to spend your declining points!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If it weren't for all of the rules (visitation hours) and the price tag, it would be perfect! Spacious, clean, temperature controlled rooms!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Nashville has the best food I've ever had

Party Scene: Stereotypical college parties do not exist at Belmont. There are house shows though that showcase talented djs and bands at the school.

Campus Food: There are hardly any healthy options. Every food option on campus mainly sells just sandwiches. It gets old after a while.

Party Scene: I mean, it's Belmont. But we definitely have Vanderbilt and all of Nashville for partying.

Campus Food: It's like any other caf food. Definitely needs improvement. But we are getting a new one next semester that is supposed to be much better.

Campus Housing: GREAT housing. Bad upperclassman housing registration process. STUPID rules like visitation hours.

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.
