Hi! My name is Michael Waters and I’m a native of Florence, SC.  I began my career in the field of college admission at Furman University, my alma mater.  I later earned a master’s degree in counseling from Georgia State University and then served for eleven years as the Director of College Counseling at Brentwood Academy in suburban Nashville.  Heeding the call to return to a university setting, I joined the admission staff here at Belmont in 2005.  

In my free time, I enjoy golf, reading (especially history) and raising a vegetable garden.  I feel fortunate to work in a Christian community that not only values learning and service, but also challenges students to identify and follow God’s purpose for their lives.  If the idea of spending four years of your life in such a setting appeals to you, come visit and see if Belmont is the right place for you. 

Michael works with prospective students from: 

These states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Georgia, Hawaii, New Mexico, Nevada, South Carolina and Utah

These Tennessee counties: Hamilton County, Robertson County, Rutherford County, Williamson County

These Middle Tennessee high schools: Battle Ground Academy, Benton Hall Academy, Brentwood Academy, Christ Presbyterian Academy, Curry-Ingram, Franklin Christian Academy, Franklin Classical School, Grace Christian Academy
