    LOVED IT! This school is amazing! The people are amazing, the teachers are amazing, the dorms are amazing (the list could go on)! Music is very popular at Belmont, but so is Nursing. Nursing students get to work in fantastic hospital systems nearby, and Music students are in the country music capital! There are so many opportunities for students, and the faculty want the students to succeed. Not to mention, the dorms are HUGE! Nashville is a great area, so the campus is safe too.

    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.
