Wait for it, Wait for it

More than a year in the making, Belmont’s hosting of a presidential debate became a focal point for the campus and the city this fall. As preparations and programming commenced, the entire community looked ahead to Oct. 22 with great anticipation.

Not Throwing Away Our Shot

Determined to offer a safe and seamless event, the University dug deep to complete preparations and to demonstrate true Southern hospitality as the media, campaigns and candidates began to descend on campus.

The Room Where It Happened

When October 22, 2020 dawned with a bright blue sky, all attention was focused on the room where it was about to happen… the Curb Event Center.

History Has Its Eyes on You

Without question, the eyes of the world were on Belmont and the city of Nashville as the 2020 presidential candidates met for the final time just 11 days before Election Day in this historic campaign.

Forging Ahead

The Debate security fences and media tent were barely removed from campus before Belmont was moving on to an array of exciting new projects.
