Campus Traditions

Part of the magic of Belmont is the campus traditions that shape the overall Belmont experience. Our goal is to ensure that Belmont traditions enhance the Bruin experience and provide unforgettable, life-long memories. Check out the information and photos below to see the fun in action!



Throwback Prom

Kick off the first Friday of the Fall semester with Throwback Prom hosted by the Student Activities Programming Board. Each year, the theme of the event changes to highlight a specific decade. Grab your friends, dress up to represent the decade, and join in the fun!
