An overnight visit will provide you with the best overall view of Transylvania because you can experience both the academic and social sides of campus life. We have a group of students, Admissions Ambassadors, who have an extra bed in their room just for you—no sleeping on the floor at Transy!
Overnight visits are only available for seniors and only during the academic year. Dates for 2016-17 will be posted later this summer.
Transylvania offers a variety of on-campus events such as fall, spring and admitted student preview days for prospective students and their families. Activities include campus and residence hall tours, student panel discussions, faculty presentations and opportunities to learn about scholarships, athletics and campus life in general.
We can accommodate chaperoned groups of high school students in ninth grade and above. Group size is limited to no more than 50 people (including chaperones). We request a 10:1 student-to-chaperone ratio.
Group visits are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays, and we require at least two weeks’ notice.
During your visit, your group will meet with an admissions counselor for a presentation and will go on a campus tour. Please let us know if there are specific topics you would like us to address with your group.
