Lexington is a medium sized city, which has a growing arts culture and established night life when the local colleges are in session. The University of KY central campus is located a few miles away, providing both entertainment in the form of sporting events and free access to its extensive libraries. The downtown center, only a few blocks away is clean and safe; however, it is not recommended that students walk the other direction at night.

Transy has recently pushed to get more students from different backgrounds

close to dorms and classes. Can sometimes get filled up though.

Guys & Girls:
For dudes, there are the typical jocks, the more musically inclined, and the smokers, they are the big three categories I could group them in. The girls... well, its a good thing that the third ranked school in the country for good looking women is down the street. You can always go to Transy for the education, but chill out at UK for the girls.

if you stay in downtown Lexington, you'll be fine, but I wouldn't suggest venturing too far away from Broadway, there is a lot of gang related activity on the outskirts.

Transy offers almost anything you could want from a college: plenty of places to study, any club imaginable, (some that are unimaginable as well, such as a Quiddich team (the broom flying game from Harry Potter). All in all, it's a pretty laid back place with lots to do in downtime.

Transy offers an amazing athletic facility, a pretty good library, and almost any sport you can imagine, other than football, as well as a variety of clubs. If you have a new idea for a club that nobody has thought of, they will do everything in their power to make that club a reality, they will even give you $200 for start up costs.

The campus is pretty small, so every class is within a 5 minute walk from wherever you go on campus. Transy offers a free bike rental service, and its right in downtown Lexington. Even the Freshman parking lot is really close.

The meals aren't terrible, however the times in which each place on campus run at random times and can be confusing and inconvenient.
College Junior 2013-07-26T00:20:11Z
It can be a hassle, but the financial aid officers help where they can to make things run okay.
College Junior 2013-07-26T00:19:13Z
Everything for campus is within an easy walking distance. The only issue with cars is that the parking with larger incoming classes gets to be more of a hassle.
College Junior 2013-07-26T00:13:27Z
It just depends on what your goals are and what you're involved in.

Given that Transylvania is located in downtown Lexington, there are a lot of nearby options, ranging from cheap to expensive. There are many quality and fast food places within walking distance, and many, many more just a short drive away. There are a few that offer Transy discounts- and I need to say, going to Shakespeare & Co. is a must.

At times the computer labs can be crowded, but usually it isn't bad at all. They are easy to log into and access printing facilities, so I don't have many complaints.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T17:20:40Z
I love our on campus dinning options! The food is great and there's always a good variety to choose from. The only thing I'd change is the some of the open times and make them stay open a little bit later.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T17:18:21Z
Transylvania's academics never cease to impress me. I am constantly challenged without feeling over worked and I actually enjoy everything I am presented with. Transy also strives to make sure that I am fully involved with my education. My opinion matters and the professors are always willing to work with me so that I can attain my full potential and reach all of my goals
College Senior 2013-07-08T15:54:51Z
There is not alot to do. No professional teams, no shopping in walking distance.
College Senior 2013-07-08T15:52:44Z
The only thing I don't like about it is the cost. I am already struggling to go to school and then to be able to be a part of the Greek Life you need to have money. My family does not have alot of money so I found it impossible for me to afford school, work to help pay bills and then have to pay money to be a part of a fraternity so I had to drop out.

Transylvania is located in downtown Lexington, which is near countless malls, restaurants, and clubs! It's truly an amazing town!

Although most students at Transy tend to be in the mid to upper class, you will see different types of people -- sexual orientation, religion, and political affiliation.
College Student 2013-06-13T19:15:10Z
Drinking is common because our dorms are wet. But, you only will encounter the students who are above 21 drinking (completely legal.) All other types of drugs aren't common -- rarely seen!
College Student 2013-06-13T19:12:56Z
Although single dorms aren't available to incoming freshmen, the dorms are quite nice. They retain tradition and offer a decent amount of space!

There are a wide variety of Psychology offerings at Transylvania University, and the faculty in this department is great. However, because of the large number of psych majors, getting into the right classes is sometimes difficult.
College Sophomore 2013-04-05T04:07:02Z
Lexington is a vibrant city. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance of my school, and there are always plenty of events going on in the city.
College Sophomore 2013-03-25T18:03:38Z
There are a lot of intramural teams for Greek people, which I am not. But, Transy does have a lot of school spirit.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
