Transylvania established an affiliation with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in 1865. The history of the Disciples reveals a focus on unity in faith, higher education as a path to understanding and tolerance when faced with differences. Transylvania is proud to embrace these same values.
JOIN A STUDENT RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION
CRU is a student-led campus ministry whose goal is to provide each student an opportunity to respond to the claims of Christ. CRU meets Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the Campus Center lobby to eat, be real and study God’s Word.
Disciples on Campus (DOC) is Transylvania University’s student religious organization for Disciples of Christ—a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.
Muslim Student Association is Transylvania University’s student religious organization for Muslim students and those interested in Islam.
Transylvania Catholic Organization’s purpose is to build community with those of the Catholic faith and those interested in Catholicism. TCO provides service and education to the community on the ideals of a Christian life. TCO has a monthly Transy Mass at St. Peter Claver Parish and holds retreats and group book readings.
Transy Interfaith Alliance seeks to create an environment of inclusion for students in all modes of life (religious, nonreligious or anything in between) through embodiment and learning. Interfaith Alliance meets weekly to discuss topics of faith and practice and engage the Transy community.
CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY
Lexington is a university town, so there are religious organizations and college student groups for people of all backgrounds. Transylvania students are currently involved in Presbyterian, Episcopal, Baptist, Disciples of Christ, and Independent Christian groups in our neighborhood. For more information, view a list of local campus ministries.
Transylvania’s downtown location means there are dozens of vibrant churches and religious communities within walking distance. View a list of local worship services. If you have any questions or could use some assistance connecting with a community, please contact Emily Miller.
