Bunch Library provides an all-night study area Sunday – Thursday nights for Belmont students. The study area, which up to now has included the first floor and atrium areas, has become so popular with students that the Library has now extended it to include the Information Literacy Classroom as well as the second floor of the Library. Come on over and settle in!

2013 marked the 100th anniversary of the founding of Ward-Belmont School, when Ward Seminary for Young Ladies and Belmont College for Young Women merged in 1913. Ward-Belmont was largely a junior college for young women, although it also included a music conservatory, a Preparatory School, and the School of Arts and Dancing. Ward-Belmont was in existence until 1951 when it was purchased by the Tennessee Baptist Convention.
Although much has changed since then, you might recognize some of the images below. Stop by Special Collections in Bunch Library to see a special display that includes photos and memorabilia from the Ward-Belmont days.
