Alumni Reflections

  • Acqueline Cain

    “I chose Belmont because of how much the students, faculty, and staff love the school. My first time on campus was for a preview day. I could immediately tell how much the students loved the school by how they presented themselves and interacted with prospective students. Everyone was very positive and supportive. I never felt like anyone didn’t want to be there. I chose nursing because I love to help people, and I want to be a part of something bigger than myself. I specifically chose nursing at Belmont because the program is very prestigious and has consistently had high NCLEX passing rates. I also loved the small class sizes because I always felt like my professors knew me and supported me.”

    “My time at Belmont had a profound impact on both where I am today and who I am today! I was pushed academically, helped professionally, and developed great relationships along the way. Over my four years, I got to know each of my professors who I still connect with today. Not many college students can say that. That is something that is unique and special about the Exercise Science department. I wasn’t just a student; each of my professors wanted to get to know me, develop a relationship with me and help me succeed.”

    “I chose to pursue Social Work at Belmont as I really wanted to be part of a learning community that valued my experience and encouraged me to grow as a professional early in my career. I knew that I was receiving a quality education while I was enrolled at Belmont, but it was not until my graduate training that I realized just how far superior it actually was.”

    “I chose Belmont because I grew up in Tennessee and was familiar with its stellar reputation. My education at Belmont enabled me to be a self-starter and increased my confidence as a practitioner. I appreciate how the occupational therapy department educates future practitioners on how to be culturally competent, while also implementing faith based principles. As a woman of color, that meant a lot.”
