I have read a lot of negative commentsNot so brightOther
I have read a lot of negative comments about Belmont. After being here for a few months, I've learned that a lot of this is completely untrue or over-exagerrated. The rules aren't super strict. There is no lights - out rule or anything. They just prohibit drugs, sex in the dorms, and alcohol which are banned at OTHER schools. If you're upset about that, then I'm pretty sure college isn't for you.

Pros: Campus is gorgeous. People here are pretty friendly. The Music School (not Buisness) is pretty good. All of the facilities are at best amazing and at worst medicore. All of them have air conditioning. The College of Science and Mathematics is even more serious than I expected. The coursework at least for science majors is not as easy as expected. It's a little easy, but right now I'm a freshman, so it might get harder.

The students most of them at least are more serious than I thought. The school are fairly diverse racially. Cons: Convocation credit. Thats a pain if you're a busy person like me. The food is average. I would recommend one the restraunt around the campus. The dorms suck. They're super loud and noisy, but I'm sure it's that way everywhere. Visitation. I wish there was no visitation period.There is no official dual degree program. You can still double major though. The School of Music is pretty strict on your class schedule.

Belmont is only worth the money if youBrightPerfomance Arts
Belmont is only worth the money if you are in the music program. They really do have great connections and qualified an experienced professors. You get good hands on experience, but of course it is what you make it. HOWEVER. No other major at Belmont is worth the money. Belmont only cares about its music students, and I did not enjoy my time as a student there. The rest of the programs at Belmont are overlooked, with little funding and no attention. If you want to study anything besides music ten GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. The idea that Belmont promotes that it is a 'prestigious school' is not true, the acceptance rate is over 80%! The administration is a joke, as is the president, and the staff all around is extremely unhelpful. In my entire time there I only had two professors who made it clear to his class that students were their priority and they were here to help. Every other professor I had couldn't care less about the students.

Do not go here.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Do not go here. I did not enjoy Belmont in the least. They treat you as if you're in middle school. There are endless rules. Primarily all of the students have dreams of being music stars and Belmont capitalizes on this. Belmont sells hope. It sells the hope that if you come here and spend a huge amount of money you can be the next big thing. This school is really only fit for a peppy hipster who is okay with being treated like a seventh grader. I am in college, I don't need my school dictating what I can and can't do on every aspect of my life. I was planning to do Music Business but I found it to be uninteresting and a cutthroat industry. Belmont has a great sales pitch between the beautiful campus and being in Nashville. Do not go to Belmont. I am transferring to a state school with far more options, far less rules, half the cost and a better education. I wouldn't recommend anyone choose Belmont.
