I love Belmont University! The size of the campus and student ratio is perfect. All of the classes are easy to get to and the community is very friendly. The teachers are very understanding and will help you if you are having trouble. The food is pretty good. It's a lot better than other universities, however the only downside is they serve the same stuff everyday. They change it up every now and then but its pretty much the same stuff. One of the best things about Belmont is there programs. They get some of the greatest speakers to come and give lectures about different topics. Belmont is truly a great school, and I am proud to call myself a Bruin.
Review Belmont University
I have loved my experiences at Belmont University, and as a current student who is studying abroad, I have found that I miss Belmont a lot more than I anticipated. The teachers are incredible, class sized are on the smaller size, it's easy to make relationships with professors, and it's easy to make friends. Everyone is friendly, and Belmont as created an incredibly supportive environment. There could be more done to promote and make a more diverse campus, but I know that a lot of students are viewing that as a priority. Belmont is an incredible school, and I'm excited to get back Nashville!
I have a number of sweet friends who are Greek, and they, along with their sororities and fraternities, really spice up the campus. They bring inspiration and life with all the work they put into events! I love joining my Greek friends to raise money for charity in the fun events they come up with. The portion of the student body that is not Greek definitely appreciates and mingles with the Greek population. Although there aren't fraternity or sorority houses at Belmont, Greek brothers and sisters are, I would argue, just as close as- and less cliquey than- those on campuses with Greek housing.
