For a Christian school, they scram liberal and do their best to pour propaganda and socialistic bullshit down your throat.
It’s hard for me to get a full gauge just yet due to the pandemic wiping out a lot of usual first year college experiences. Our school has been very thorough, however, in making sure all students are being safe and cautious, and still getting a close knit learning environment that the school promises. Soon enough we’ll be able to resume normal college life, and the way things are going now, I’m really optimistic that the environment will be even that much better and more fun once the pandemic dies down.
I have fallen in love with Belmont University. I am in the Sciences and Mathematics department, I have a major appreciation for the JACC building and the professors. The Car is nice, I just wished we have more than one cafeteria. Belmont is in the center was Nashville, so everything is always happening.
I was a little hesitant to be at Belmont at first, since it is religious-oriented and known for its music faculty. In my very first Belmont class, I was blown away by how diverse the student groups are and how inclusive the faculty members are. I am very thankful for the interaction possibilities between music and non-music majors. Belmont has an awesome science program that will definitely prepare you for higher education and life beyond your degree.

I would tell myself to enjoy it more. I spent my entire freshman year stressed out about classes, finances, my roommate, and working. I didn't take the time to socialize as much as I should have. I didn't try new things. I did not have the typical freshman experience, because I didn't "stop to smell the roses." It took me a year to realize that I was at this amazing school and that I should celebrate and enjoy every second!
Quirky, funny, intellectual, and genuine, each individual classmate contributes his/her own personality and style to the school in order to challenge themselves academically, socially, spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually and to uphold the values for which Belmont stands.
Not to stress out too much about college life or being home sick. It is really easy to get used to being away and meeting new people and feeling at home.
The amazing opportunities offered to the students.
Belmont is a great place to make new friends and is very helpful in educating and finding a career for life.
To me the worst thing about Belmont University is the cost of attending the school. I understand that private universities such as Belmont need to have a high tuition in order to keep up with their own costs, but the financial burden I have taken on with my parents is substantial. Currently, I am struggling to make ends meet with my off-campus apartment. Costs are really starting to add up and sometimes I'm not sure I will be able to make the necessary payments. "Cost" is the worst thing about Belmont University.
Anyone would be a good fit at Belmont, but students who are creative, self-motivated, and wanting to learn would thrive here. Students who specifically interested in music, be it the industry, songwriting, or performing, would be perfect fits. Also, students who are looking to be involved in campus organizations and the Nashville community are strongly encouraged to be here.
The best thing about Belmont University is that it offers degrees in music industry fields and that it sits atop Music Row in Nashville, Tennesee, Music City, USA. Many of the professors are music industry professionals with unique and meaningful experience to those of us passionate about the industry. The internship and networking opportunites are exceptional.
At Belmont there are students from all walks of life with a wide range of interests, goals, and beliefs. I believe the only kind of person who wouldn't necessarily enjoy attending Belmont would be a student who wants the enviroment of a large campus.
Belmont University has a great music department. If you want to work in the music industry at any level you can get the training that you need at Belmont. The music professors are great. Belmont provides their students with great opportunities both on and off campus. Being in Nashville is also a great plus.
People are very driven. If you are not really sure what you want to do, you feel behind at times.
Classes are small and the professors do know you. Belmont's science department is underfunded. They have outdated equipment, small classrooms, and not enough faculty to teach all courses. The school does not put money into the department. Belmont only cares about music and their graduate school. The rest of the programs get little support.
The fraternities on campus, and some intramural sports.
Belmont has way too many students for its small campus size and the campus is packed. The administration refuses to recognize the small size of the school and continues to let more and more students in each year. There is not enough parking spaces for everyone and most people have to park off campus.
Yes they are very much accurate. Well over half the school is involved in some sort of music program.
The stereotypes the people at school are subjected to are that they are hipsters. Don't get me wrong there are hipsters, but most of the students that go there for the music in my experience has been because they want to go back to analog music. They want to revert to the old days of AC/DC, The Beetles, Bob Seger etc., but most people would think that the students want to make pop music.
