With more than 40 student groups and organizations, Belmont Abbey offers you lots of ways to get involved, take the lead, make a difference, and have fun. All year long, our student-run Campus Activities Board brings in comedians, musical acts, and coffeehouse performances. They also help organize major campus events like the First Day of Class Bash and the annual Crawfish Boil on the Quad.
Live in a new residence hall with a state-of-the-art dining center. Work-out in the Student Fitness Center on new equipment. Connect with over 100 new Wi-Fi spots across campus. Study or hang out with friends at the Holy Grounds Coffee Shop. Transition into college life with valuable programs offered at the Wellness Center.
In addition to adding a new face to the exterior to match our campus, several interior additions have been made. We have upgraded the study carrels, added an interactive display wall, and switched to high density shelving. There are also new spaces for group studying and data booths.
New Lights on Abbey Yard
Finally, Belmont Abbey will be hosting night games! Thanks to new lights, athletes' practices and games will be more flexible. As a result, an athlete's class schedule will also be more flexible allowing them to be more involved in the community. We also anticipate greater attendance by the larger community and students for an evening of fun at Abbey Yard.
Alumni Field Enhancements
In order to make Alumni Field feel more like a stadium, giant 12' by 10' billboard style pictures now surround the field. Each image features athletes from one of our men or women's teams giving our opponents a spirited welcome to our home field.
Due to the popularity of studying or simply hanging out in hammocks, the Abbey has created a Hammock Hangout. The search for two good trees is over! In the quad, there is now several posts for you to clip your hammock into. The Hammock Hangout can support 9 hammocks at the same time.
