Stories of Belmont

For 125 years, the Belmont University family has woven a story of a “Belief in Something Greater.” In August of 2015, nonprofit organization StoryCorps – the largest oral history project of its kind and whose stories are heard weekly on NPR – visited Belmont and recorded 17 stories from the Belmont community. These oral histories tell some of the greatest moments in Belmont’s first 125 years, and the recordings will be archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
