  • Belmont has 'visitation hours', which mean the opposite sex can't be in your room from 1am-10am. Although these seem like a hassle, they actually are not that bad. This helps…

    The caf will give you a job if you need it and work around your school hours plus the staff is really great. However the meal plans are expensive for food that doesn't close to what they charge you for.

    Depending on your situation, the most accessible source of food is the cafeteria and though it may not be the best at times, it is the best choice due to your meal plan than spending seven to ten dollars eating out. For the year 2014-2015 there will be a new dining hall and other food places being opened to the students which expands the variety of food offered to them.

    Well...the first month you will enjoy the food, but after you will truly despise the caf (cafeteria slang). But they are working on having better food choices and building a new cafeteria, so it should get better!

    The caf food isn't bad per say, but it does get boring after a while. Luckily there's a lot of great food choices near campus that are relatively cheap that are great to try. Chagos and McDoogles chicken shack are my personal favorites.

    The current cafeteria is not very good, but there should be a new one next year. Hopefully the caf won't be a problem for future students! Food options include various stores on campus and the curb cafe. They all offer food available to be bought with declining points, which come with your meal plan. These places offer decent food, and should hopefully be getting even better in the coming year.

    The cafe most of the time does not have very good food, however the workers are really nice. The Curb Cafe has decently good food as well as the Corner Court. Overall, Belmont should have more options to eat besides the cafe and a better meal plan.

    There isn't much to choose from and the caf hours are horrific. The best place to eat is curb court, but once your declining points run out you have to eat at the caf. The caf does offer great salads, burgers, and pizza. They also make great wraps and sandwhichs. It isn't all that bad!

    Greek life may seem dull due to there only being about 5 frats and sororities on campus. However I hear they're a lot of fun.

    There are just a few fraternities and sororities on campus. None have houses and campus. Greek culture is not as prevalent here as it is at many other schools.

    Greek life isn't like the typical Greek life at other Universities, they don't have houses or pledging. They are groups centered around volunteering and helping others in the community.

    I'm not a member of a frat because of Pembroke basically being a frat. But they don't have their own houses, so I would imagine its not great.

    Greek life doesn't take up a lot of Belmont's student population, and that is another thing I love about this school. It is very well-rounded and greek life is very involved while not over powering.

    GREEK LIFE IS VERY DIFFERENT AT BELMONT FROM STATE SCHOOLS. WHILE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOME KIDS WHO LIKE TO PARTY, THAT IS NOT THE FOCUS OF GREEK LIFE. OUR SLOGAN IS ACTUALLY RETHINK GREEK AND THAT JUST MEANS WE WANT TO CHANGE THE WAY PEOPLE SEE GREEK LIFE.
