At Belmont, it all starts with TT.
Towering Traditions (TT) is the unforgettable orientation experience welcoming new Bruins into the Belmont story. Our goal is simple: we want to connect you with the Belmont community as you set your college trajectory to align with your goals and dreams. We know beginnings aren’t everything, but they matter. TT is your Belmont beginning, designed to get you on the right start.
THINGS TO DO
BEFORE YOUR SESSION
Students who have not yet registered for spring courses will have the chance to do so during spring orientation. In order to prepare for course registration, all students are encouraged to watch these important videos before your orientation session. During spring orientation, you will meet with your academic college to learn more about specific courses and requirements for your major. All students will have an advisor hold on their account. This hold will be removed right before course registration on the day of the student’s orientation session.
