Belmont University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
You will know your professors at Belmont, and they will know you. Your assessments will be more varied than at a large state school, where so much is test-based. You'll make presentations, write papers, construct blogs, videos, or other media, and you'll be graded on participation. That being said, the school doesn't offer a lot in the way of diversity. Students come from all over the country, but are predominantly white. Sports also aren't a huge focus. So, if you're looking for extravagant game days and school pride, Belmont may not be what you're looking for. Religious courses are required at Belmont, but it doesn't feel like professors are pushing their specific belief systems, and classes are typically a mix of people who identify themselves as Christian, and people who identify as agnostic, or "spiritual," but not religious, or practice other religions.
Belmont University has an atmosphere that will make anyone feel at home! I loved the energy and southern charm of the campus and everyone on it. The professors are genuine and care for you and want to help you be successful. There are many activities for students to make friends, network for jobs, and to just get involved. I loved every minute of my time there.
Belmont University is located in the heart of one of America's greatest cities, Nashville, TN! The student body at Belmont is eclectic and intelligent. What the school lacks in racial and socioeconomic diversity, it makes up for individual diversity. Whether you are a musician looking to make it big on Music Row or a Nursing student--Belmont provides a diverse range of exemplary programs. Belmont University is a top school in the South and will certainly provide a a small school atmosphere with a big city vibe!
Belmont is a great school if you want to be able to establish meaningful relationships with your peers and professors. Even though enrollment has gone up, the school is still able to provide small class sizes, which I believe played a huge part in my successes as a student there.
Belmont offers rich courses filled with rigor. There were always a wide variety of classes offered. The campus is rather homogeneous, as a private Christian school. There are very few professors of color and perspectives are typically "shared" Rayner than challenged.
It was a school in transition in many ways. I loved my time there and the people I met, but I would definitely recognize its not for everyone
I really enjoyed my experience at Belmont University. I learned a lot about business and entrepreneurship and built long lasting friendships. Additionally, Belmont has a spectacular career services department that is very diligent about connecting students with employers in their field of interest.
Belmont's Nursing program is beyond anything I could have asked for. Not only are the professors intelligent, but also extremely kind and strong in their faith. There is a special experience when you feel like your teachers truly want you to do your best and want to see you succeed. I have always felt encouraged and supported. The program layout is better than any other school- being accepted as a freshman helps you start classes and clinical earlier than anyone else in a nursing program at any other school. Not only does the Belmont community think highly of the nursing program, the Nashville community does as well. I would not have changed my mind if I could go back. Belmont is the best, hands down.
