I love going to school at Belmont. It has its issues, but it seems every school does. we have a very unique community and being in Nashville gives you all the opportunities of a city with the Southern Charm of a small town. Professors expect a lot from you, but if you stay on top of your work, it is not too bad. It really is a great school and I'm glad I choose to go here.

Dry Campus – Belmont is a dry campus meaning there is no alcohol. It is more strict than most dry campuses and they strictly enforce the policy.

Dining Hall/Caf – They try to have a good amount of variety and healthy options, but it is hard to do that when preparing for the masses. It gets really repetitive. After freshman year, I suggest getting the 7 mean plan because then you have more dining dollars to use in other places on campus.

Trying to find parking anywhere after 10pm on weekdays is nearly impossible. Even the "gravel lot" is usually full. Bepo also gets too anxious about ticketing people for the littlest things, like parking somewhere that's not actually a spot (because you can't find any others), or for unloading a car DURING MOVE-IN DAY. Their fees also seem to be way too high.

Drugs and Alcohol – This is a clean college campus. Some may choose to use drugs and drink under age, but no one is pressured to and it is mostly off campus that these things occur. If you want to get involved in that sort of activity, you can, but if you don't want to, there are plenty of people with you.

Off Campus Restaurants – Some good off campus restaurants are just across the street, making it easy to go to and a great college student scene. They have really good food and lots of options. Some places are a bit pricey, but if you're wanting to go out to a nice restaurant these are good places to go.

The professor to student ratio is small, which means they know who you are, more than just your name, and are usually easily accessible and helpful. The BelCore makes you take just enough Gen Ed courses, not too much. The workload depends on your major, but usually it's no problem.

Not a Part of It – I am not a part of the Greek Life here on campus so I don't know very much. I do see plenty of their events going on all around me.

Health & Safety:
Very Good – I feel very safe everywhere I go on campus. There isn't very much campus crime that goes on from what I hear, and if there is it is taking care of very well.

Classes are really close together so if it is raining, you don't get that wet.
Recent Alumnus 2011-11-07T17:41:16Z
Not as Much – There's not too many drugs. I hear about marijuana occasionally but nothing too crazy.
Recent Alumnus 2011-11-07T17:36:55Z
There are many off-campus restaurants that are good!

Parking on campus is not bad, I can usually find a spot near the entrance, and they are adding another parking garage, which should help.

The computers in the library have been recently updated, are fast, and very nice.

If you have alcohol on campus (even if you're 21+) you can get into serious trouble. If you show up on campus and are drunk, even if you got drunk somewhere else, you can get into serious trouble. If you're caught doing drugs, you can get into serious trouble. If you're caught smoking a cigarette on campus, again, serious trouble. Most people here don't do drugs/drink, I think mostly because of consequences/lack of access. If you try hard enough you can find it though.

I Really Like This Area – There's a lot of really neat places around here for eating and such, but none of them are really close. The closest restaurants are Chago's and PM (they're both delicious), but other than that you have a little way to walk. I would definitely recommend bringing a car. If you have a car there's tonss to do here.

Student Discounts – I wish there were more student discounts for off-campus dining.

Health & Safety:
Personal Safety – I feel very safe on campus. I have never seen a non-student on campus who was threatening.

Parking can be awful. Unless you get there early, be prepared to drive around for quite awhile. Commuters can park anywhere but still struggle, on campus are much more limited and can feel quite stuck when there arent any spots available.

Off Campus – Located in downtown Nashville, finding an off campus place can be pricey and just a hassle overall. On campus living is very relaxed and still allows you a lot of freedom.

First semester here and so far it is not a problem. I am interested to see how the winter is for commuting. I have heard that it is not bad though.
College Senior 2011-11-01T16:35:13Z
Drug Scene – I am not privy to any drug use on campus. I am sure there it would be a stretch to say there are zero drugs on campus, but the campus does have a zero tolerance policy.
College Senior 2011-11-01T16:30:57Z
I am not familiar with the on, or off campus housing. I live off campus and commute in.

The bus schedules are a little tricky, and if you're trying to get somewhere fast, I wouldn't count on the bus - they notoriously run late. But I've never had a car on campus and haven't had any problems getting where I need to go between public transportation and getting rides from my friends. Plus, the buses are free with your Belmont student ID, which is really nice.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
