Experience Transy

We are delighted that you plan to visit Transy, and we want your experience to be the best that it can be. Pictures can show you our beautiful campus, but they only tell part of the story. Visiting campus is the only way to get a true feel for the spirit of our campus.

We offer a multitude of campus visit options, including weekday, Saturday, and overnight visits, as well as special events on campus. Please see more information below. When you are ready to schedule a visit, click the corresponding links on this page or call the admissions office at 859-233-8242.

Transylvania’s admissions office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. All visits during these dates and times include a walking tour of campus and a meeting with an admissions counselor. Additionally, we are happy to customize your visit by including optional meetings with our faculty, staff, or coaches in your areas of interest; a visit to a class; or lunch on campus.

An overnight visit will provide you with a comprehensive view of Transylvania because you can experience both the academic and social sides of campus life. Our Admissions Ambassadors have an extra bed in their room just for you (no sleeping on the floor at Transylvania), and both dinner and breakfast will be provided. Check back soon for fall overnight visit dates.

Transylvania offers a variety of on-campus events for prospective students and their families. Activities include campus tours, lunch in the dining hall, meet faculty and staff and opportunities to learn all about life at Transylvania.
