Ninety-one Transylvania University students recently participated in Transylvania’s 18th annual Crimson Christmas philanthropic event.

Transylvania’s Office of Residence Life and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Bluegrass sponsored Crimson Christmas to provide local children with a holiday-filled morning. Children paired up with students from each residence hall to attend a carnival with booths hosted by a variety of Transylvania organizations. Activities included face painting, arts and crafts, trivia and other carnival games. The children also enjoyed a visit from Santa Claus who came bearing gifts.

Transylvania, founded in 1780, is the nation’s sixteenth oldest institution of higher learning and is consistently ranked in national publications as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.
