Synopsis

Since its founding in 1890 Belmont University has held true, through good times and bad, to a Belief in Something Greater. In August, non-profit organization StoryCorps visited Belmont and recorded 17 stories from 34 people from the Belmont community. These oral histories serve to capture authentic moments, document important times, and tell amazing stories of Belmonts 125 year history for all to hear. The recordings will be archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, preserving them for generations to come. Please subscribe as we share these stories with you throughout the year.
