Review: Tapingo delivers on time-saving promises

After learning that many Belmont students don’t use or even know about the new Tapingo mobile ordering app, a few members of the Vision staff — mainly myself and our 5 Minute Expert, Harrison Baldwin — thought we’d give the app a try. Time-saving? The first thing we wanted when […]

The athletic department is dedicating the year to celebrating the 50th anniversary of women in sports here at Belmont.

Hi. My name is Augusta Smith, and this summer I was an intern for Ken Burns’ film company, Florentine Films. So, I got it. I got the amazing, coveted internship that the young, plucky college student protagonist goes for and either gets or doesn’t, but learns a lesson from — […]

OPINION: Learning to fail

I didn’t want to come to Belmont. I’m sharing this because I think it’s too easy to edit out the messy parts of life and pretend like everything is wonderful. Yes, it’s true that I love my campus and am proud to be a Bruin. But that doesn’t mean this […]
