Reviews for Belmont University
Attending college at Belmont was, thus far, the best four years of my life. It was everything I had hoped for in a college experience. There are so many great things about Belmont that I could literally write a novel. I have recommended Belmont to everyone that asks, and I will never stop singing its praises. One of the outstanding features of Belmont is its size. It is a rather small private school and has a very intimate atmosphere. The highest number of students I ever had in a single class was 35, so the teacher to student ratio is awesome. The teachers know your name and extremely approachable. Also, it's just nice to feel like you know, or at least have seen, most people on campus. It's a very comforting feeling. Not to mention, Belmont has one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever seen, and it has great history to it as well!
The classrooms are smaller than most universities. My friends attended colleges that had huge stadium-seating auditoriums, and there would often be over 200 students in one class. The great thing about Belmont is its small size. I don't think I would have been able to concentrate or pay attention in a class as big as the state universities. But with a small class, arguably comes a heavier work-load. Belmont was always very challenging and intellectually stimulating, which I appreciated. With a smaller number of students in each class, teachers are more likely to assign more papers than in large state universities. I didn't mind this because I enjoyed learning. Belmont has steadily increased in college rankings since I graduated, and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't even be able to get in today with my SAT score back in 2004. It has an outstanding reputation, not only around Nashville, but increasingly nationwide. I loved Belmont because, unlike my friends at big state schools, I didn't feel like I was just a number or being babysat. The professors constantly challenged us and pushed us to succeed.
I had not planned on joining a sorority when I started out at Belmont, but a girlfriend talked me into rushing with her. I ended up getting a bid, and being Greek turned out to be one of the best experiences. I was nervous about joining something I had always referred to as "organized fun" or "paying for friends" but it really isn't like that at Belmont. Greek life was different there. Other campuses haze new members or have a social hierarchy among members. Hazing at Belmont is strictly forbidden, and any Greek organization caught participating in any such activities will lose its charter. Because of Belmont's small size, there are typically only 55-65 girls in each sorority. I ended up making some of my best friends not only in my own sorority, but with all others because Greek life at Belmont is big on school-wide socials. But, another awesome thing about Belmont was that you didn't have to be Greek to feel like someone. We each hung out with just as many non-greek members as we did with our own sisters. In fact, most Greek socials are open to the entire school, it just happens that a Greek organization is the one hosting it. Like I said, because Belmont is so small, everyone knows everyone, and it's one big happy family. Not to mention, Nashville is the greatest city on earth. I've lived in Dallas, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Denver, and Nashville is my favorite of them all.
