Nashville Airport

Nashville International Airport has been expanding service to far-off destinations, but the latest announcement is one of the city’s closest neighbors: Atlanta. In August, Southwest Airlines will begin offering flights five times a day.


Belmont University

Belmont University announced a plan Tuesday to merge with the Franklin-based O’More College of Design. This upcoming fall, all O’More students will move to Belmont’s campus in Nashville.


The plan will unite the two schools’ graphic design programs and sees Belmont taking on three others: interior design, fashion design and fashion merchandising. Belmont President Bob Fisher believes the merger comes at a good time, amid Nashville’s burgeoning fashion industry.
