"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 MBA program offers a lot of varied courses that apply to all sorts of areas. I enjoyed being able to make my program more of "my own" with the electives I selected. I think the campus and its location are also pros. Absolutely beautiful campus and they're constantly renovating and updating the buildings. Also, its location in the center of Nashville is great. There's a lot of living options and entertainment available nearby. I think the cons are similar to every school. Some of the adjuncts are could be better selected and some professors have chips on their shoulders about their topics of study."

"Although it is a new school, the Belmont University College of Law is already making great strides toward establish itself in the Nashville legal community and I am proud to be a part of the beginning of this!"

"Belmont Law's biggest issue is that it is sacrificing necessary Bar Exam material in order to try to create its own niche. Specifically, many if not most law schools have two semesters of core subjects like contracts and torts, but Belmont crams those into one semester and instead forces students to take Intellectual Property (which is not tested on the Multistate Bar Exam) in order to fit with Belmont Undergrad's reputation as a music school. On the other hand, Belmont has an appropriate focus on preparing students to actually practice law. Belmont requires all students take a practicum course each semester. Additionally, Belmont Law has a beautiful new building equipped with a full trial courtroom and an appellate courtroom."

"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."

"A pro of Belmont University College of Pharmacy are the support and accessibility of faculty and staff. The campus is small and very beautiful. The surrounding city offers many opportunities for all interests. Last year 100% of students passed their boards and I feel the curriculum prepares student's to be successful in their future. In the second semester students begin going on rotations and get experience in the field. Some cons are the cost of living is fairly high, many students drive to campus, and I feel Belmont could offer more scholarships to their students."

"I have been extremely happy with my experience at Belmont University. I feel that I am being well prepared for my career as a Family Nurse Practitioner. The instructors are approachable and well prepared. The curriculum is appropriately structured and the overall program has been designed well to promote success. I am very proud to be a graduate student at Belmont University. In saying this, I honestly have not encountered any cons other than the cost associated with attending a private institution."

"Last year the graduating class had a 100% pass rate on the NAPLEX. This is a challenging program with very passionate teachers. The teachers prepare students for the national exams to come and are continuously working with students to better the program. Belmont University is located in a large city, but the atmosphere on campus feels like a small town and a close-knit community."

"Belmont's FNP program is small in size, which creates a great environment for learning. The professors are very supportive and want to see you succeed. The program is challenging, but very good. I received my undergraduate BSN at another university and much prefer Belmont's style of teaching and smaller class sizes. Belmont's a more expensive university, so financial aid does not usually cover the full amount of tuition. Overall, I would recommend Belmont University to anyone I know and enjoy attending this university."

"The graduate program is full of exceptional faculty members that allow students to strive for excellence to become more well-rounded individuals for the workforce. The program is full of students from various backgrounds providing opportunities to learn from our peers. Exciting and challenging coursework keeps the students engaged and lab work offers real world situations in order to acquire relevant ways to apply our new knowledge."

"Any JD program will be rigorous and challenging, however my graduate program has done an excellent job in hiring professors who are dedicated to the success of their students. Even though material may be difficult it makes a huge difference when the students know the professors wants them to learn and understand the material. Since the school is new there are few groups and societies to join, however the facility is beautiful as well as the surrounding area. Belmont has created an environment that is dedicated towards helping their students understand the law."

"This is a wonderful school, with experienced and personable professors. Each professor cares about all of their students and treats each student as an individual and not just another number or name on a class roster."

"Belmont University is my undergrad alma mater. It was not a difficult choice to choose Belmont for my graduate studies. Though Belmont has grown by several thousands of students since I first was there, they have kept the commitment to maintain a small-school atmosphere. The dedication and commitment of the faculty to get to know each person in their program and do what they can to help them succeed is priceless. My only complaints are the difficulties in finding parking and no central hub for graduate students to study, eat, and relax separate from the main student life center or library."

"While my graduate program is very expensive (over 2x my undergraduate loan amount) this is just about the only con. Belmont offers me experience both in and out of the classroom through their teacher intern program. In this program, we not only get to teach in both Nashville Metro Public School System, but also in an area and level of our choice the following semester. In hunting for jobs, this gives us a leg up on the competition, as the intern program is considered our first year of teaching (and we will enter the pay grade accordingly). One day a week is spent on campus while we work closely with our mentor professors and fellow students. Nashville is a great city and Belmont provides intimate and hands-on instruction."

"I have sincerely loved my time in the Belmont graduate program. The professors and advisors are tremendous! They offer a lot of feedback and one on one attention. They are also great to work with as a full time employee going to school in the evenings. I am in the MA English program, which offers two options: Literature or Writing, so no matter what you love, you get a firm foundation in both. I highly recommend Belmont's graduate programs."
