What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
Make sure to look into you major and even ask for a tour or to meet with an advisor. They will be happy to help in any way. If you are looking for a smaller Christian school Belmont would be a great place to attend.
Nicole from Brentwood, TN
Take as many Advanced Placement courses and their tests to get those college credits, so that when you get to college, you will have a head start on you degree requirements!

Also when you get to college, take your decision to go to college seriously; this is not the place to play around and party! The partying can wait!

Get involved too! Being involved in different organizations on campus will yield so many opportunities and networks that will propel your growth as a student and an overall person!
Jordan from Nashville, TN
make sure you come and visit the university! there is an awesome organization on campus that i'm a part of called bruin recruiters. it is our job to welcome you to the school as well as show and tell you everything you would ever want to know about it. in addition to that, it's always a good idea to get a feel for the environment you could potentially live in for yourself.
Mimi from Houston, TX
Try and visit the campus if you can as well as visit Belmont's studios on Music Row. Talk to current students and not just the ones giving tours. Belmont tends to put out an image of being much more conservative than they actually are. If you can find time to just hang out on campus, sit on the front lawn and listen to the many different guitars, voices, violins, saxophones, and many other instruments that are consistently being played. If you belong at this school, you'll be able to tell just by listening to what campus sounds like.
Marcella from Kentwood, MI
For those students who are considering Belmont University I would tell them to be prepared to do your best and to not be afraid to ask for help because the professors encourage questions and are always willing to answer them. I would also say be prepared to have fun because Belmont certainly has something for everyone to do and for them to enjoy.
Briana from Antioch, TN
Definitely check out campus! I didn't seriously consider coming to Belmont until I fell in love with the professors, students, and the campus.
Grace from Nashville, TN
Make it an absolute point to explore all of your scholarship options both inside and outside of Belmont's scholarship department (that is my advice to any student at any college). I would advise to explore the campus for all that it is worth. Research all of the majors that Belmont has to offer. If you are into Music Business, or the Entertainment Industry, this is absolutely the place to be. Also, get to know the faculty that are a part of whichever school within the University you will be studying under. Taking a close look at the dorms would be beneficial as well.
Sophie from Dallas, TX
- Really take the time to get to know your professors, they will prove to be allies who you will want to have
-Do the readings that your teachers assign, you will be glad you did when it comes time for the test
-Explore all of the cool places to study on campus, there are some areas that are well-kept secrets that are quiet and comfortable for the best studying environment
Sarah from Strongsville, OH
Come visit the campus - you will love it!
Taylor
Do some research on your prospective major and the university. While I love Belmont and Nashville, sometimes it is not for everyone. Belmont is a Christian University; however, they are very accepting of all religions and backgrounds.
