Engagement with the liberal arts
Our Mission and Values statement speaks to what we do for you as a student at Transylvania University. Through the education we provide, the involvement we encourage, and the exploration you’re destined for, you’ll learn and develop these core principles of the liberal arts:
• Independent and critical thinking
• Creative expression
• Social responsibility
• Problem-solving skills
• Analytical skills
Why are students with liberal arts degrees so successful? Because they’re not restricted to one career path; they’re not bound by one subject matter; they’re not connected to one social group. Liberal arts graduates have skills and talents that cross careers and break down barriers.
As you embark on your college search, we invite you to explore Transylvania University to the fullest. Learn about all the academic programs we offer and the faculty who will challenge you to stretch your mind wider than you’ve ever thought possible.
Discover opportunities to be mentored and network with alumni from all around the world with our 100 Doors to Success mentorship program. We’ll help you find your passion in the classroom—and through the people and connections you’ll make.
Get involved on a campus that’s in the heart of downtown Lexington. Having a city of over 300,000 people in your backyard makes finding social and cultural events as easy as talking to your neighbor—literally!
Great things are happening at Transylvania University, including the construction of the $29 million state-of-the-art Campus Center. The best way to learn about all this (and more!) is to visit us. You can tour the campus, discuss your academic passions with faculty, meet with coaches, and see what it truly feels like to Be A Pioneer. Schedule your visit as soon as you can at transy.edu/admission/visit-options.
