I love Nashville, there are plenty of neighborhoods to explore. especially since campus can get pretty empty

Hipsters galore! Don't be surprised if you see people walking around barefoot. But maybe it is kind of nice to see people put effort into their clothes, and not bum it in sweatpants every day.

I live in Bear/Patton. It's great having so much space! However you can't open your windows, and paint on the walls even comes off from painters tape. I fondly refer to it as "Patchy Patton"

Guys & Girls:
Unless you're into the whole hipster scene then Belmont really isn't the place for you. It's predominantly white, skinny, quiet people who are very artsy and into music or "hipster" things.

At times it's hard to find a ride to all these off-campus locations unless you have a car which isn't too common Freshman year. You can find the basic places around Nashville, all typical fast food restaurants, pizza places, Subway, Chipotle, etc. Lots of choices, cheap prices, and satisfying if you can find a ride :)

Campus is very nice and well kept. The architecture has a unique Southern but modern feel to it.

The courses at Belmont, while interesting, often are not challenging in any way. There is little to no critical thinking in any course I've taken here at the school. Though some classes have challenged me, I have managed to retain a 4.0 GPA while still spending my time in multiple choirs and DJing on the weekends.

No smoking on campus. No alcohol on campus (even for those 21+). Visitation hours limit the possibilities of hooking up. Hawk-like RAs try to catch students frequently.

There are often plenty of spots for students to park in the on campus parking garages. In addition, Belmont is also building a new third garage for students and faculty.

It is for 21 and up typically, but you can go to Vanderbilt for free and party your face off. I don't party anymore, but if you go to Belmont and want to- expect to pay for a cab and have a driver because there is NO drinking on campus.
So many bars to choose from!
College Junior 2013-02-13T20:03:11Z
The parking is improving with the addition of two more parking garages and three more this past year (Nashville parking is HORRID- but at least free in the BU area).
Pros: you can have guys watch a movie with you (If you're a girl) past 11. Not having a curfew or rules improves time flexibility and social life. You can drink (even if you 21 you cannot have any alcohol at Belmont).
It is a PAIN to find, actually get a lease, and set up utilities... but a true growing up experience. It is great to build credit, and MUCH cheaper than on-campus housing. I pray a 1/6 of the price I would on campus.
Also, you don't have to buy a meal plan. I save money buying groceries with a kroger card.

Due to the dry campus atmosphere and lack of fraternity housing there is very little drug activity that takes place openly.

The weather at Belmont tends to be like much of the south, extremely unpredictable. There is an element of surprise, which is nice, but the winter can be a quite obnoxious. Summers are quite hot, but during the first semester we experience some awesome months of seventies and sixties!
College Sophomore 2013-02-12T06:52:18Z
We're a dry campus, but other than that, Belmont is pretty lenient.
College Sophomore 2013-02-12T06:28:05Z
Personally, I think the academics are good. They are not extremely difficult, but aren't super easy either.
College Sophomore 2013-02-12T06:26:31Z
It depends on who you hang out with, but it's not a problem.
College Sophomore 2013-02-12T06:25:32Z
There's not a whole lot of parking, but it's close to the dorms.
College Sophomore 2013-02-12T06:22:50Z
It's not your typical Greek life for college standards. It's not so much about the parties, but more about the community and voicing what they stand for. It's very small - there are only about 4 or 5 sororities and a handful of fraternities.
College Sophomore 2013-02-09T01:34:53Z
They treat us like children in certain areas. I had to check my own mother in for visitation. It is incredibly dumb. I do not drink or do drugs but they have pretty strict rules concerning both. If drugs are found you get expelled and alcohol you just get fined and written up. I honestly feel like I am 5 while attending this school.
College Sophomore 2013-02-09T01:28:53Z
I came for the music business program. I have only done general educations courses so far so I can't give an honest review of the academics here.

Nashville is an amazing city with a ton of character and interesting places to see and visit. As a haven for music lovers, Nashville is a superb place for anyone wishing to enter the music field or simply bask in the musically unique atmosphere that the city indefinitely offers.

The process for getting into the communication major was easy. No particular essay or performance required. I declared my major right from the beginning and was able to start taking communications classes my first semester. Like that the communication professors are so accessible and the number of students that declare communications as a major is small.
College Sophomore 2013-02-08T19:51:16Z
The campus housing seems fine - but I don't have anything to base it on. Like the dorm life and connection it allows to other students. You get to know other people that are outside your major or sorority. Some dorms you share a bathroom with a suite and others you share the bathroom with the floor. I'm on a floor that you share a bathroom - haven't had a problem with it.
College Sophomore 2013-02-08T19:42:16Z
There are a lot of places to eat on and around campus. The dining hall does get old after awhile - but you just move on to something else. I do like the variety of food offered.

Coming from the Mid West - the weather is different. We did get some snow and I was surprised by the reaction of the school and the community. It was almost at a shut down state. But it's because Nashville is not used to snow and don't know how to get around in it. Classes were called off. They also called off class when there was a chance of snow. I did enjoy getting out and playing with my friends in it. The fall was great and the weather is not as cold here as it is back home. Haven't seen what spring is like yet - but looking forward to it. Heard it's earlier than what I am used to.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
