#Transy2027, make the college experience you’ve been dreaming about a reality: Deposit by May 1

Students walking on campus at Transylvania

May 1 is just days away, marking Transylvania’s deposit deadline and the traditional college decision day for high school seniors. 

Students who submit their deposit by May 1 will save their spot alongside other exciting and talented incoming first-year students who have chosen Transy to prepare them for a fulfilling life and career.

At Transy, first-year students get the same research, community engagement and leadership opportunities as their upperclass counterparts, and many of them discover passions they never knew they had through student organizations and in the broad liberal arts curriculum. From day one, they learn to write and think critically, and they make lasting friendships that carry throughout their four years at Transy and beyond.

What are some of the things to consider when making your decision? Put pen to paper and come up with a list of what you’ve found important in your college research — from academics and majors to campus life and extracurricular activities. This could include:

  • College type
  • Distance from home
  • Location
  • Size
  • Major offering
  • Academic quality

Since we only have a short time until the May 1 deadline, we made a chart for you to help you make your decision. 

Then, once you’ve made your head list, take a look at two more things: 

  1. Make your heart list. Where did you feel most at home on your campus visit? What college location outside the campus walls will you enjoy most? Which made you excited for college life?
  2. Go with your gut. Once you’ve settled your head and your heart, you should have a good gut instinct as to which college is going to be the best for you. Get excited — four of the best years of your life are around the corner!
