At Transylvania, we pursue bold paths. Our students learn from engaging faculty in small classes, ensuring that everyone gets the personalized attention they need to thrive. That’s why 95% of our graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation. 

As one of only nine top liberal arts colleges in a city with more than 300,000 people, our campus sets us apart from the competition.

I always say that I’m only bored if I want to be, even on the weekends. There are so many different clubs, volunteer opportunities, teams and athletic events that you can find what you’re interested in.
