Transylvania University Top Questions

What is your overall opinion of this school?


Overall I love this school. The people are nice, the faculty and staff are amazing and really care about you, and although most of the buildings are a bit old they are renovating and rebuilding a lot. Plus this place has great history, and some not so great history.The only downsides are the lack of racial diversity among students and the awkwardness of knowing everybody since it is such a small school, but that has its upsides as well.


Mold in forrer hall, and the university ignores it. Caused major heath problems for me causing me threat to swell i can hardly breath.I wake up every day with burring red eyes. The parties are non-exsistant, it is a suitcase college (although they tell you it is not) everyone leaves on the weekends. The atmosphere on transy is very depressing, and almost every freshman has considered transferring at one point. The food is terrible. Social life is pathetic. I know too many people transferring. Has the potential to be an amazing school, but need lots of help. Wanted to go to a small school for the one-on-one time, it is hide and go seek trying to talk to my professors. The academics are alright but not worth wasting you college experience. I would highly recommend not attending this college. The admissions office ensured me there would be new bathrooms for the 2018 class, a huge crowd for basketball games, and it was NOT a suitcase college. I found out for my self that these things were all not true. Transy was not anything I had seen in my several college tours. Be 100{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} sure this is your college. It seems like the people who deicide not to transfer to a new school are stuck, and are just making it through college. You should enjoy your college experience! I don't want y'all to the the mistake I did. Hope this helped. Good luck on your college search! xoxo
