Belmont Abbey Student, Declan

“Belmont Abbey has helped me become more grounded while giving me the confidence and the ability to further pursue my goals in life. I have met a lot of great people with different back rounds including the professors and coaches, who have all taught me how to be gracious and respectful towards others.”

Belmont Abbey Student, Candy

“Travelling to the United States for the first time from a tourist destination island in the Caribbean only 18 miles long and 11miles wide was the biggest change I ever made in my life. Here at the Abbey I went from knowing no one to now feeling loved and cherished by many here at the Abbey.  Belmont Abbey allowed me to grow and mature mentally and spiritually in a way that I would have never imagined. I appreciate the treatment that the international student staff has shown me from day one, they make sure that I have everything that I need.  It is the place for international students who want a good education in a Christian environment, the small classroom size is just what I need to receive individualized attention from my professors. I am blessed with my Abbey family and   I can truly say that Belmont Abbey College is my home away from home.”
