Did You Know?
- When the presidential debates came to Belmont in 2008, people were not allowed to call the lawn in front of Wright/Maddox the "Grassy Knoll," as it had been called for years. The University did not want any connotation with the grassy knoll from the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963.
- Heron Hall is said to be haunted. Tales about the Heron ghost get interesting especially around Halloween.
- All freshmen live in dorms and most of the dorms are for freshmen. Upperclassmen mostly live in the campus apartments or off campus.
- Residents of dorms can have visitors of the opposite sex, but they have to sign them in. And while they are in the room together, the door has to be cracked or the pair will be written up by the RA on duty. Visitation usually ends at 11 p.m. on weekdays and 1 a.m. on weekends. There are visitation rules for the apartments as well, but they're looser-you don't have to sign anyone in and visitation technically ends at midnight on weekdays and at 2 a.m. on weekends. Technically.
- Bruin Hills apartments used to be low-income housing projects, but were bought by Belmont in the '90sand turned into campus apartments.
