Active Times Ranks Belmont a Most Beautiful College Campus in America

Bell Tower and Flowers

Active Times recently placed Belmont high on its list of 21 of the “The Most Beautiful College Campuses in America.

Recognizing that many prospective college students and their parents think about a university’s academic rigor, prestige and price when choosing where to attend, another factor to consider is the beauty of the campus itself. The website noted, “Belmont is located on the former Belle Monte estate, which includes an antebellum mansion. Built in 1853, it is on the National Register of Historic Places. The 105-foot bell tower, gardens and gazebos are also scenic aspects of the school.”

Active Times scoured media coverage, online reviews and other accolades to compile a list of schools from coast to coast with campuses that stand above the rest.
