About Transy

Information Booths

Creating positive brand recognition for your company or graduate school is important when recruiting students. We welcome you to visit campus during the academic year to meet with students and to share your programs and opportunities.

Just down the hallway from the Career Development Center lies the Rafskeller, Transylvania’s student grill and one of our most popular destinations for students during the lunch hour. Career Development will host you at a table set up just outside the entrance to the Raf, so you can catch students on their way to or from lunch. We’ll also treat you to the yummy food there!

To schedule an information table on campus, please contact Jill Warfield or call the office at 859-233-8193. While you are welcome to come any time, we recommend Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m., which are our highest traffic times in the Raf.

Career Fairs

We know our students and alumni look great on paper when they apply for jobs and grad schools, but meeting them in person is how you get to see them shine!

  • Spotlight Career Fair for jobs, internships, and grad schools
    This annual career fair is a consortium fair of the 21 schools of the Association for Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities (AIKCU) and Hanover College in Indiana. The event typically takes place in late February or early March in Lexington, Ky., frequently the day before or after the career fair held by Eastern Kentucky University. This gives you the chance to see hundreds of students over a couple of days.
  • Law School Fair
    Held annually on the first Wednesday in October, this event is part of a central Kentucky Law School Fair week. Other colleges in the area hosting law school fairs include CentreEastern Kentucky, Georgetown and the University of Kentucky.

  • Summer Camp Fair
    The Summer Camp Fair is traditionally held the beginning of February and occurs in conjunction with other regional colleges. Lindsey Wilson College’s Career Services Center handles all registration for the various schools. You can register for as many or as few schools as you’d like, depending on your focus and available time.
