Message from Brad Goan, Dean of Admissions
As the father of three children, I am repeatedly humbled by the magnitude of my parental responsibilities, and I admittedly get a little anxious when I think about going through the college search process as a dad.
For most students, the college choice is the biggest decision they have made up to this point in their lives. As a parent, not only are you the biggest influencer in that decision, but you have to navigate multiple roles — task master, counselor, personal assistant, and accountant, just to name a few. We obviously want your son or daughter to consider Transylvania. We think this is an outstanding place with incredible opportunities. But most important to us — as it is to you — is that your son or daughter find a community that will build upon the foundation you have laid, that will provide a wonderful four-year collegiate experience, and that will propel him or her to success and happiness in life and work for a lifetime.
I hope you find the following information useful, as it is particularly important to you as a parent. Feel free to contact me or your admissions counselor at any time. We look forward to working with you.
