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 […]

Editorial: On the shoulders of heroes

The athletic department is dedicating the year to celebrating the 50th anniversary of women in sports here at Belmont. Being a female athlete at Belmont, the relevance that this year holds does not escape me. Last week, the very first women’s basketball team ever at Belmont reunited in honor of […]

Editorial: What Belmont should do with International Market

By now everyone has probably heard about Belmont’s $6.5 million acquisition of International Market & Restaurant last Thursday. The restaurant — or more specifically, the property it sits on — was a long-coveted piece of real estate for Belmont. Former owner Patti Myint said Belmont had sought to purchase it […]

Mein Bowl review: Look What You Made Me Eat

When six members of the Vision staff found ourselves gathered in the office after class Friday — our stomachs all panging with hunger — we decided today might be the day to taste test the new Mein Bowl Asian eatery in the Curb Cafe. First, we should break down the […]

Editorial: What President Trump can learn from President Fisher

President Donald Trump continues to defend his position on blaming “many sides” to the violence that led to three deaths in Charlottesville. On Tuesday, Trump reiterated his position to a crowd in Phoenix, Arizona, once again failing to condemn white supremacists, white nationalists and Neo-Nazis in a 77-minute assault on […]

OPINION: What I learned from my internship with Ken Burns

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: Lessons from watching the waves

I’m sitting on the beach, just close enough to the water that the waves occasionally push far enough to brush the ends of my feet, and ever so rarely one is dedicated enough to completely submerge them. I’m thinking surely there’s a metaphor I can force out of this experience. […]

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 […]

OPINION: What the Nashville Predators mean to me

I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have hockey. As a kid, I remember watching games on TV with my dad. I remember seeing the movie “Miracle” in the theater with my childhood best friend, and afterward re-enacting the historic Olympic game on our roller blades […]

OPINION: How I learned to be the Tortoise

Growing up, I loved the story of “The Tortoise and the Hare.” For anyone who doesn’t know it, it’s a story about a tortoise and a hare who decide to have a race. Of course, the hare is much faster than the tortoise, and, as they start the race, the […]
