Transylvania publication receives regional award

LEXINGTON, Ky.—The Transylvania University admissions viewbook received the Award of Excellence and was a Grand Award finalist in the student recruitment category of the 2011 Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s District III awards competition. The award winners were selected from entries submitted by public and private colleges and independent schools in nine southeastern states.

The viewbook provides a comprehensive introduction to Transylvania for prospective students. It was produced in-house by the university’s publications staff: Martha Baker, director; William Bowden, writer/editor; Barbara Grinnell, graphic designer; and Tyler Young, editorial assistant.

“Our publications team consistently produces award-winning work,” said Sarah Emmons, Transylvania associate vice president of communications and public relations. “I’m delighted that the viewbook has once again been judged among the top in the region.”

Transylvania, founded in 1780, is the nation’s sixteenth oldest institution of higher learning and is consistently ranked in national publications as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.
