What Students Are Saying

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 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.
