    I attended Belmont University from 2010-2014 graduating as a Songwriting major and Sociology minor. I had such an incredible experience! I am looking forward to returning to Belmont in the spring as an architect major. Since graduating Belmont I have start two successful companies in the music industry, Roscolusa Music Festival and What It Is Collective. After the pandemic and an immediate halt to the entertainment industry, I have decided to go back to school and pursue my love for architecture.

    Considering music therapy? Don’t do it! Worst experience of my life. If it interested you, transfer to another university. It won’t be hard to find a better qualified department. If one music therapy professor doesn’t like you at Belmont, prepare for the worst experience of your life. Favorites are a thing and professors can prevent you from graduating if they don’t like you. Transfer or choose another major to switch to at Belmont.
    I have been at Belmont for only one semester, and I can honestly say that it is an amazing school. That said, I have some friends that are already looking to transfer, but the main reasons are because of the lack of a party scene or the cost (two things that you can definitely figure out before committing). Also, when it comes to having fun, if you're determined to have a good time, you'll find a way. The community at Belmont feels so special and welcoming, so the first few weeks are smooth for most students. If you aren't outgoing, you may not LOVE Belmont, but most people come out of their shells quickly. It is really a wonderful, nurturing environment. It could be much more diverse, but I have met lots of students with different perspectives on life and had great dialogues with them. I genuinely feel that my professors and friends care about my success and my well-being, and I wouldn't trade that for anything. Come check it out for yourself!
