Belmont University hosted its 2022 Winter Commencement ceremony for undergraduate and graduate students at 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16 in the Curb Event Center. The University awarded 397 bachelor’s degrees and 65 graduate degrees.
English graduate Lauren Tweedell read scripture from the Gospel of Matthew and shared a reflection on her time at Belmont, followed by a student musical performance by Christopher Wiper. This is the fourth Belmont commencement ceremony to feature the original song “Let Hope Abound”—inspired by University President Dr. Greg Jones’s inaugural theme—performed by alumna Piper Jones. The piece was written by alumni Chad Cates and Melinda Doolittle with Tony Wood.
