Transylvania among top 15 percent of nation’s four-year colleges

LEXINGTON, Ky.—The Princeton Review once again listed Transylvania University among the top 15 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges.

“We selected these colleges primarily based on our high opinion of their academics,” according to the Princeton Review, which includes Transylvania in its book, “The Best 380 Colleges – 2016 Edition.”

The Princeton Review—known for its college admissions, tutoring and test prep services—also conducted independent surveys of students at the country’s top schools.

The report characterized Transylvania students as “passionate, involved, kind and intelligent.” There also is a collaborative culture at the school and “strong sense of community.”

One of the students surveyed said professors are extremely accessible and “care about their students on a personal level.”

The Princeton Review noted: “Individual attention is paramount at Transylvania University.”

Additionally, a psychology and philosophy double major said students “care about each other and are ready to stand together to support a cause or a friend in need.”

The survey also highlighted the many ways to get involved in groups and activities both on and off campus, and it mentioned Transylvania’s dynamic learning opportunities. Students can expect a rigorous, high-quality education at this liberal arts school, which “emphasizes interdisciplinary work” and fosters critical thinking.

Plus, students commented on the ideal location of Lexington, which offers amenities such as “a rich culture of art” and dining and entertainment opportunities— furthermore, downtown is within walking distance of campus.

In addition to including Transylvania in the Best 380 Colleges list, The Princeton Review listed it as one of the Best Southeastern schools.
