Belmont’s Honors Program students are our pride and joy, the "crème de la crème.” They come from 25 states and several foreign countries. Honors students assume many leadership roles on campus, do service learning in the community, and often become tutors and outstanding scholars in many departments.
Belmont Honors students regularly serve as Resident Assistants, Spiritual Life Assistants, and hold campus government offices such as the current and two past presidents of the Student Government Association. They regularly participate in the Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium, departmental honors societies, and they get elected to the Alpha Chi National Honor Scholarship Society, the highest academic honor awarded by Belmont. Their names are recognized in the commencement program as “Belmont Scholars” along with the title of their senior research or leadership projects.
Honors students work as ushers at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, engineers at Nashville record studios and media outlets, performers at the Ryman Auditorium, and producers of events in the Massey Concert Hall, Troutt Theater, and McAfee Concert Hall. They have won Fulbright Scholarships and have been admitted into some of the nation’s best graduate schools, medical schools, law schools, and professional programs.
