About Transylvania

Transylvania Athletics Complex

New Athletic Field and Track

On April 26, 2014, Transylvania dedicated its new $10 million Athletics Complex.

Home to the university's field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and track and field teams, the Transylvania Athletics Complex features an 860-seat grandstand, an eight-lane track, and an artificial turf field that has been in use since October 2013. The 18,000-square-foot field house provides locker and conference rooms, coaches' offices, a sports medicine facility, concessions, a ticket booth, and public restrooms.

The Athletics Complex, which is the first major construction project in the Transylvania 2020 strategic plan, has already paid off from a recruiting standpoint, landing two new women's soccer commitments for 2014. "I think recruiting will be enhanced by showcasing the new facility, which solidifies what we have to offer here at Transylvania University," head coach Michael Fulton said.
