Nashville first earned the moniker "Athens of the South" back in the 1800s when we were the first city anywhere in the United States to operate a public school system. Since then Nashville has remained a city dedicated to higher learning and we're proud to have such a distinguished academic heritage being part of the history of our city. If you're interested in attending a college or university in Nashville then you might be interested in one of the following:

Vanderbilt University
This private university is situated just over a mile from downtown Nashville and places consistently well in national academic rankings in terms of psychology, business, law, medicine and education courses. Vanderbilt is a recognized research university and is a member of the Association of American Universities as a result of that. With over 12,000 enrolled students each year and a student retention rate of 96% Vanderbilt is a leader in its class.

Belmont University
This private Christian university is located on 75-acres of land and is just a short drive from downtown Nashville also. There are over seventy different areas of study for students to choose from but music, nursing and business tend to be the most popular. One of the most respected universities in the south for their masters-level of education Belmont is home to more than 6,000 students each year and the 13-to-1 teacher student ratio means that you'll never feel “lost” here.

Fisk University
This university came into being to provide for the education of slaves who'd been freed very shortly after the end of the American Civil War and has gone from strength to strength since that time. Ranked as one of the better universities in the country it continues its proud tradition of being a heavily African-American influenced college since it first opened its doors in 1866. With just 500 students attending this university each year you'll feel more like a part of a family than just a larger student body.
