A graduate of Manheim Township High School, Belser was no stranger to the campus of Franklin & Marshall College. A four-year starting swing guard/forward and MAC All-Conference selection, Belser was the heart of the Diplomat team that was among the best in the region during the late 1980s. She was ranked nationally in free throw percentage most of her freshman year, shooting over 90 percent to earn ECAC South Region Rookie of the Year honors.

During the 1989-90 F&M Invitational Tournament, she broke the 1,000-point scoring mark in a 58-47 win over McDaniel. She finished the year with 1,236 points while only a junior. In 1990, Belser shot 47.4 percent from the floor, 78.6 percent at the foul stripe, pulled down 4.5 rebounds, dished off 2.8 assists and averaged 14.3 points per contest. She finished the year with 429 points, and was selected team MVP, MAC Southwest Player of the Year, an ECAC South First Team All-Star and Most Valuable Player of the ECAC South Region.

Belser's record for foul shooting (86.1%) still stands as a testament to her outstanding ability on the court. She finished her eligibility with 522 rebounds, tenth all-time, and 1,655 career points, third on the all-time scoring list.
