Forget what you might think about jocks being dumb. Transylvania Pioneers lay that stereotype to waste.
Fifty years after the passing of Title IX legislation in 1972, women’s intercollegiate athletics at Transy are producing athletes and coaches like never before in school history.
From embracing their inner “Magnum, P.I.” in November for male health awareness to picking up trash off the streets during a neighborhood clean-up in March, the Transylvania men’s lacrosse team is dedicated to year-round campus and community service.
For institutions of higher learning, every presidential transition is a pivotal moment. Universities choose leaders based on their needs at the time, whether it’s a steady hand, a soaring vision or a stabilizing presence.

Transylvania encourages pre-health students to discover how they can best use their interests and talents to help keep the rest of us well.
