Julia Nittoli -- Student-Athlete of the Month for October

Julia Nittoli -- Student-Athlete of the Month for October

Julia Nittoli had a great start to her senior season for the women’s golf team.  In the team’s first event in mid-September, she won the individual title at the Morehead State/Greenbrier Invitational with a score of 217.  It was her first individual title of her Belmont career and the first for the program since 2017.  For her efforts, she was named OVC Golfer of the Week.  Nittoli, a native of San Antonio, Texas, currently ranks second on the team in scoring with a 77.3 average. 


What’s your favorite thing about Belmont?

I love the community at Belmont. Being pretty far away from home, it is really comforting knowing that I have such a great support team at Belmont from my team, to friends, and faculty.


If there was a movie made of your life, what would it be called and who would play you in the movie?

The Unpredictable and I would be played by Shailene Woodley


If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why? 

I would be a giraffe because they are unique, kind of weird and don’t eat meat.


Who is your favorite account to follow on Instagram and why?

I follow this account @divineontheroad. It is this girl who lives in a renovated van with her golden retriever and travels the United States. She posts really cool pictures and I just really enjoy her posts and podcasts about her journey and experiences.
