About Student Leadership

The Towering Traditions Orientation Program strives to empower student leaders to play a significant role in assisting new students in their transition to Belmont. As a student leader in this program, you have the opportunity to influence a new generation of students who come to Belmont. A student leadership position has the power to shape and influence the program and with that comes a great responsibility to Belmont, the new students, and the parents we serve.

The guiding principles for Student Directors, Orientation Assistants, and Tower Team Leaders are based on the principle of servant leadership as demonstrated through Romans 12. This passage serves as a call to who we must be and how we must lead shaping our vision, mission, and purpose.
