I have taken Biological Interactions, Women's Studies, Cultural Anthropology, Latin-American Civilizations, Computer Science, and Lifetime Fitness. I do not regret taking any of them because they have all taught me so much. The teachers are all passionate about their subjects so it is easy to get interested in the class and actually want to do assignments and join discussions.

    Transylvania University is a great university for the student seeking an education from passionate and driven professors and fellow students. One of the best aspects about Transy, for me, was that the students were all academically focused, the professors showed genuine care for students' learning, and the student body organized many interesting events for students to mingle and have fun. The campus is small and cozy, so getting to class on time and getting lost is never an issue.

    Transylvania is an incredibly expensive school, but it is worth its cost. It was here that I began to really see what kind of impact I could make to the world around me and how I can make choices for my own life to become something greater. I have only attended the school for one year, but I am so inspired by our alumni, our professors, our staff, and our history and hope that I can achieve the same feeling of success.

    Great school with lots of amazing opportunities. The name, and subsequent vampire jokes only apply during finals week; all the students are up all night, super pale from being inside, drinking red colored energy coffee mixes and hide from sunlight. The location is perfect with UK nearby, biking is always an option and getting anywhere is a 5 minute walk.

    Transylvania is a great University who hopes to uphold its identity as a liberal school and provide opportunities for its prospective and current students. Here you are given a world full of knowledge and discussion where your opinion matters and wants to be heard. Here you are able to recreate yourself as a human being to open your mind and offer your skills to the awaiting world around you.

    Transylvania University has a beautiful campus and is located in a great college town. With only about 1200 students, small class sizes allow you to form great relationships with your professors. Just a 7 minute walk from one end of campus to the other and only a 10 minute walk to downtown, this campus is the perfect size and in the perfect location to enhance your college experience.

    College life here at Transylvania University is full of learning experiences, opportunities, and offers courses to better engage students in a more worldly manner and assist them in gaining new perspectives through more broadened horizons that become available through liberal arts education. Truthfully I love it here. The small campus does not limit your ability to go beyond the walls or boundaries or the classroom and it is the perfect home away from home in Lexington, Kentucky.
