Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Belmont is a perfectly sized school with extremely intelligent professors. Belmont has a fantastic music and music program that were perfectly suited for my academic studies.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The most imperative part of the college decision making process is that the student feels absolutely comfortable at his school of choice. After all, this is where he will inevitably be spending his next four years. I would advise any potential college student to begin their search process as early as his junior year of high school to alleviate stress that often tends to lead toward altercations between the student and his parent(s). First and foremost, the student must find a school where he feels he can thrive academically. He must find a school that offers the tools necessary for him to not only complete his degree program but to complete it in a timely manner and with great pride. Students should then observe the school's social life, because college is about a lot more than just academics. It is extremely important for the potential student to be comfortable, as mentioned earlier, in his school of choice's environment. This way, he will feel open to meeting new people and eventually make friends for life. If the student gets started on their college search in a timely manner, I feel he can't go wrong.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Lack of school spirit due an overwhelming amount of students who have no interest in participating in on-campus activities such as Greek life, Division I sports, etc.

There are a whole range of students, students from all over the country come to Belmont to study Music Business and so my classmates vary greatly.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The most important thing in finding the right college, is finding a place that fits who you are. College may be the most important four or five or even six years of your life. These are the moments that define who you are. Therefore, when visiting schools, figuring out which one fits you the best, with the best academic program for what major you are interested in, is what you, the prospective student needs to look for. Although Belmont was not my first choice, it always fit me the best. It had the major I desired, people that had similar career goals, similar interests and was a place I felt comfortable. If you do not feel comfortable at a school when you visit, well it will be a long four years of your life. I would encourage parents and prospective students to really examine and meet students from the school and get a real idea of what the students are like and whether their son or daughter would feel comfortable at that school.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who is interested at all in a career in the music business should look into Belmont, but even if you are not interested in the music business you should check out Belmont anyways. Most of the students here are very career oriented and so you should be prepared for that.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When I started visiting potential colleges, I made the mistake of only listening and trusting to what the faculty and tour guides had to say instead of communicating with actual students in my field. Choosing a school is not only choosing where you will receive an eduction, but it is also where you will have potentially the best four years of your life. Look closely at what the city has to offer post-graduation, because the best advice is to make connections and work towards your career while in school; therefore, when you are out of school, there are many contacts within the city. Four years is a long time to establish relationships with fellow students, faculty, and potential co-workers outside of the college. Decide on a college that will expose you to many different subjects besides why you are specifically attending, because you will then have the opportunity to learn much more then you anticipated.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Always stick to your first choice. I made the mistake and stayed a year and a half at a school I really disliked. This made my first year miserable and my grades suffered. I made just what I needed to keep my scholarship and just floated by. Finally, I made the decision to transfer to my first choice. Yes, it was going to cost more money, but never base what school you attend by the price. It usually cost more because you get more out of the school and a more enjoyable experience. Enjoy your time now and don't worry about the price. If you do well and are determined you will be able to pay for it later in life. Just enjoy the campus and meet as many people as you can.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person that has values and works hard to acheive their goals.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The classes are small and the professor know what they are teaching.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Nashville is a great city for college students, with a host of entertainment opportunities, a variety of job options, diverse neighborhoods, and, I am convinced, some of the best people in the entire world. It's true, what they say, that Nashville is a big small town. It just feels like home. Belmont is a reflection of the city. There is no end of opportunity, and your education and social life are what you make them. Most all of the degree programs are staffed with excellent professors and the student population is diverse in individual ideas, personalities, and interests.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go where you feel comfortable. Fact is, you're probably going to change your major at least once before you graduate, so choose a place that has options and a vibe that you like and comparatively edible food. And a convenient coffee shop, this is imperative. As to academics, find out what the students think of their professors. I don't care how smart you are, if you have a bad professor you'll want to quit learning. Once you get to school, just calm down and be yourself. There are so many different people that you'll find your group before long. Don't schedule 8:00s your first year unless you're superhuman, because you will have your first really killer hangover(s) and be physically incapable of leaving the comfort of your plastic covered mattress. Yes, drink beer, and only crap beer until you're 21, and date kids, and try to love that other people are not like you. Don't be afraid to learn and change and figure out who you are and what you want. And for God's sake, don't neglect your studies if you want to enjoy your life post-graduation.

What kind of person should attend this school?

An artist, whether of the mind or in actual practice. A coffee drinker. A self-starter, self-motivater. A thinker. A music aficianado. A smoker. A drinker. Or a Jesus kid, even. Whoever it is must be open-minded and willing to be challenged. Someone who will let himself be changed by what he learns and experiences. Someone who wants to be part of a community- school/social/or city wide. Someone appreciative of body art. Someone who can understand the magic of PBR. Someone who likes to discuss opinions. Someone comfortable with himself. Someone who can stomach fried okra.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say to keep a level head and to not get wrapped up in the process too much. You have to remind yourself that it is only college. It isn't the rest of your life. If you hate the school you end up at, you can always transfer. Some people aren't made for college at all and parents and students need to be open to that option. You may end up at a school you thought you would love but it turns out to be not your place, and that is okay. Go live in the woods for a year, see the great wall, go live in your parents basement. College is not the end all be all. But the biggest thing to remember is to FOLLOW YOUR HEART. When you're choosing a college, when you get to college, when you face decisions in college, always follow your heart. If you really want to make the most of it all, then just go for it. Don't hold back, be yourself, and have a blast.

What's unique about your campus?

The sense of comradery among the students. Most everyone is friendly and helpful. In the music program everyone wants to do something different, for the most part, and helps each other with their goals.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Belmont has a relaxed, but highly productive and creative environment that lends itself to the needs of its students by through its connections, facilities, highly respected faculty, and nationally recognized educational programs.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I think that the student needs to look for a school that will meet all, or at least most, of his or her needs. I chose Belmont, because I could get my music education degree as well as obtain a degree in songwriting, my passion. It allowed me security and gave me the chance to follow my dreams while getting the education of a lifetime. Find a school that can give you the best education in your field that you can afford. The investment will be more than worth the training that you receive. As for parents, if the school that can give your child the brightest hope for a sucessful future is farther away than you anticipated, be very brave and let them go. If they are as strong and motivated as you believe them to be, they will reach heights that they could have never hoped for at the community college down the street. I came from a very small town in east Texas, and my parents let me move to Nashville, Tenessee to pursue a top notch education from Belmont. It was the best thing that ever happened to me.

What's unique about your campus?

I think that the best thing about Belmont University is how it teaches its students not only the book knowledge, but the career knowledge as well. I feel that it gives great opportunites to its students and helps them realizes the dreams that they came to the school carrying. The teachers are always willing to help a student that wants to know more and reach higher potentials.
