3 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics are a second thought at Belmont. Just about as superficial as most other departments, the administration only keeps the branch alive to attract more students not to actually teach them.

4 College Senior

Majors: Internships are very useful. Get as many as you can and try to find a focus/ related theme early on so that your employer will see a skill set.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of off-campus dining options located around the campus; the only problem is the cost of these places. Many students went broke simply because they went out to eat at expensive restaurants each night.

Scholarships: I never had any hassles with financial aid at this school. There was only one time when I had to wait on the phone for an hour, but other than that it was a smooth process.

Health & Safety: The University does not say much about the crime that happens on campus. Instead they like to focus on what's happening in the surrounding community. If the students want to know about crimes on campus they must find out from their peers.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Being from Nashville I believe that I am a bit biased when it comes to reviewing the local area; however, I believe that Nashville is filled with many exciting things. From Predators' games to weekly concerts there is always something going on in the city for students to go to. Nashville is also filled with many businesses and events that will offer special discounts to college students since there are 6 colleges and universities in the city.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: most people there are pretentious but tolerable

3 College Sophomore

Administration: it's reasonably strict but they can be overbearing sometimes

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: i didnt feel under a threat at any point

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: they'll give and take them away at the drop of a hat

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Belmont needs more international and non-Christian students. I think this would make campus more lively.

Campus Food: It's okay. I wish there were healthier options outside of the Caf. Sodexo tries, but you can tell it's still processed food. More vegan and vegetarian options would be great!

3 College Freshman

Administration: Christian policies are relevant. Visitation and substance policies are stricter than most schools. I think Belmont is getting more lenient, but, compared to other schools, it has a ways to go.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I think the options that are offered in my program work well for me, but I think the programs could be taken a step further and be better curated. Workload has been reasonable so far, and the professors have been helpful and give a lot of feedback.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I think the curriculum is good once you get past the gen ed requirements, which seem irrelevant sometimes. Most professors are very helpful, give feedback, and will work with you. However, there are a few that do not, like any other school. Registration is kind of rough since athletes, nurses, and upperclassmen get priority registration.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really liked my freshman dorm, Wright. It's older, but the closet was big, and I didn't have to clean the bathroom! I wish it were a little more modern and "homey," but other than that, I didn't have any complaints.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Belmont is decent. There are too many sororities and not enough fraternities. You do kind of get a state school cliquishness with some of the sororities and fraternities, but, overall, everyone is pretty nice. You can go to Greek parties and events if you're not in Greek life.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of Nashville restaurants. You will blow a lot of money your freshman year going out.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I wish there were more "ragers" at Belmont. Vanderbilt has good parties, but you have to be kind of connected to get into them. House parties are fun but nothing extraordinary.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Nashville is a fun, vibrant city. There are always concerts, big name and where a lot of your friends play. There are also a lot of events like games, luncheons, networking events, and more.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Though Belmont isn't the biggest party school, when parties do take place, students really assist each other. I haven't heard of any assaults or fights. Students really look out for each other here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Belmont offers a lot of opportunities, but you have to seek them out yourself. I am not in the music program, but I know there are a lot of opportunities with that, being in Nashville. For my program, I have already attended events, but I had to seek them out as they were not discussed in any of the courses I have taken.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I think the courses I have taken so far are very relevant to my majors. I think some courses are not necessary in the general education "Bell Core."

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Belmont definitely needs more diversity. People are pretty friendly, but Belmont students seem to be either musical/hipster or preppy/nursing. There are some in-between students with business, religion, or science majors, but other than that, it is a little bit of a struggle to find the diversity you could find at a state school or Vanderbilt.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Belmont granted endowed scholarships and academic scholarships, but I wish I would've gotten more aid.

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.
