Belmont Abbey felt like home from the first time I set foot on campus my junior year of high school. It's a very Catholic school that adheres to the church teachings. Even though it is a Catholic campus, Belmont Abbey is very welcoming to everyone. It's really easy to make friends on such a small campus and you get back what you put in. There are ways to socialize and meet new people almost every night but if you don't go you'll never make friends. Many of the professors are amazing and care not only about your academics but your whole life. Everyone here is apart of a massive family and it's amazing. If you're wondering about the food on campus it's not the worst, it's proabably to the better end of food you'll find on a college campus. If there is one thing I recommend it's bringing a car if possible, it can be a little tedious being stuck on campus. Overall Belmont Abbey has been an amazing experience for me and I am loving every minute of it!

I have truly enjoyed my experience at Belmont Abbey College! Although it is expensive, the college has both met and exceeded my expectations. First and foremost, this is a college founded by Catholic Benedictine monks, and thus it is a Catholic college; however, the student body is only about 50% Catholic, so a variety other faiths are present. The classes I have taken are all very engaging and interesting; each class is infused with the core Benedictine values and virtues, and the professors are truly wonderful men and women who are excited about what they teach and want you to enjoy learning. The campus itself is small but absolutely gorgeous; many of the buildings were constructed in the 1800s, so they are very old but also very beautiful.
I wouldn't want to be anywhere else for my undergraduate degree! Everyone here is so friendly and kind. I love the fact that when you walk to class you see friendly faces. Here, you are not just a number. You are a person with a name. The professors actually care about you. I love that there are monks actually living on campus. I love how everyone is involved in everything. I genuinely love this place and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
