Belmont University will graduate the largest class in the university’s history, with 457 students set to join the ranks of Belmont University alumni. Commencement is set for 10 a.m., Saturday, May 15, at the Kitty B. West Amphitheatre on the Belmont Campus, or inside the Curb Event Center if it rains.
The record graduating class caps a year in which Belmont’s enrollment set new records in both the fall and spring semesters. Enrollment surged more than 10 percent for the fall semester, for the third year and fifth semester in a row, with more than 3,660 students enrolled. Belmont also set a spring semester enrollment record with 3,477 students enrolled, more than 13 percent higher than the spring semester a year earlier.
Belmont awarded 407 undergraduate and graduate degrees in the spring of 2003, 382 degrees in the spring of 2002, and 376 degrees in the spring of 2001.
