I think the one thing a student can get from their campus visits is what I refer to as the gut feeling. It’s very different to get a brochure in the mail than to walk around a college campus and experience, you know, wow, I could see myself calling this home and I can picture myself in this classroom.

When I toured, it was kind of one of those things where I walked on campus and I kind of just felt in my heart like – This is it. This is it for me. And from that point on, my decision was made.

I could just see how beautiful the campus was and I really love the small school feel, but also being in Lexington and having the different opportunities that Lexington does provide at Transy. But mostly, I really liked the classroom setting and how close the relationship between the professors and the students is.

What drew me to Transy was the close knit and community feel that I got when I visited. The moment I stepped foot on campus, everyone was so warm and welcoming. And I knew that this was the place for me because it immediately felt like home.

I think the most helpful thing a student can do on a college visit is ask to do as much as possible. You know, it’s one thing to come and get that surface look. But why not go ahead and ask to sit in on a class, talk with study abroad about where they can go, speak with our career center about various career options, all within foot steps of our campus.
