ChristianUniversitiesOnline.org has named Belmont University as among the 50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges in the World. The ranking features schools in the United States, Japan, Uganda, Canada and the Philippines considered broadly evangelical in their theological outlook and chosen by the website’s editors. Belmont made the list at No. 48.
“Beyond both academic and religious teaching, certain Christian universities and colleges around the world stand out for the special beauty of their campuses,” said lead editor J. Shane in a press release. “We created this list to shine a spotlight on those schools for people who see entering higher education as a chance to nurture their knowledge and spirituality but perhaps didn’t realize they could do so with such stunning surroundings.”
The article mentions the University’s Belmont Mansion, a museum on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as the 160-year-old Bell Tower and its carillon and describes the 75-acre campus as “host to various grand, elegant and strikingly beautiful buildings.”
