    When I visited Belmont University, I felt very welcomed by the staff and students. Everyone that I talked to was very helpful and provided useful information about the school.

    There are a few other colleges that I have visited and Belmont definitely has the best campus I have seen. The entire campus is beautiful and scenic. It gives off a friendly atmosphere and made my college visit very enjoyable.

    I am interested in majoring in Audio Engineering Technology at Belmont and was given the opportunity to sit in on a class. I was nervous to attend the class at first because I was afraid I would be a distraction to some of the students and inhibit their learning. However, everyone was welcoming and made me feel like I was right where I belonged.

    I had a wonderful experience at Belmont University and I believe there is something for everyone to like there!

    Amazing campus, amazing faculty, amazing experience! Belmont is not only the perfect school for those who dream of pursuing a career in the music industry, but it also is an excellent choice for those who want to pursue a career in Nashville in general. there are so many different opportunities for internships and learning experiences. Already I have learned so much and have been granted so many great opportunities to expand my knowledge at Belmont. Belmont is a place to go if you want to grow not only as a student, but as a person in general.
    My time at Belmont has overall been great! The campus is beautiful, the curriculum is challenging, and the staff cares a lot for their students. I do have issues with how safe the campus is at night (barely any lights around campus, which is terrifying for the young women walking home at night), as well as how upper administration treats different situations. Our sports teams are doing well this year, and the school just built a state-of-the-art new dorm so it is getting better. This is not a party school at all, we usually put on house shows for our classmates who are up and coming musicians, but we aren't a state school so hard partying doesn't really exist.
