In celebration of Women's History Month, Transy students host sixth-grade girls for the day.

LEXINGTON, Ky.—In celebration of Women’s History Month, female Transylvania students will adopt a group of sixth-grade girls for the day on Wednesday, March 26. The middle school girls will have the opportunity to experience college life with their hosts as they attend classes, hear presentations from Transy staff, eat in the dining hall and collaborate on a group art project.

The innovative program, now in its 15th year, was developed by students, faculty and staff to target girls who are at a critical stage of development. Studies show that in middle school girls often begin to lose self-esteem and confidence and need female role models to encourage them.
