I have had a wonderful time here at Belmont Abbey College. I graduate May of this year and I'm not ready to leave yet!
During my time here, I have formed lifelong friendships with my teammates on the cheer team and those outside of cheer. After college I plan to room with my some of girlfriends from here and I'm so excited! My fiancé and I currently planning to get married at Belmont Abbey of next spring too! Since we met at Belmont Abbey it only felt right to get married at the place we call our home! :) Through Belmont Abbey's amazing business department, I have found the career path that I plan to take in Event Planning and Marketing and that makes me extremely excited for my future. Since my first day here, I have been welcomed with open arms and there's not a doubt in my mind that I was supposed to go to Belmont Abbey! I've had an amazing experience here!

My time here at Belmont Abbey has flown by and it has been a wonderful experience. BAC has felt like home away from home these last 4 years. Everyone is so welcoming when you step on campus your freshman year. I played on the soccer team here and have made lifelong friends. We have made many memories together that we won't forget. The psychology department the professors are very helpful, knowledgable, and always there when you need them. Overall, I am glad I chose Belmont Abbey College to further my education and soccer career.
Belmont Abbey has a lot to offer; from great academics in the classroom to championships in athletics. The Abbey welcomes everyone and truly feels like a home away from home. Something that would be nice to see changed is more options for food, but that may be it!
