Academic Programs

“The professors at Transylvania are more than figures in a lecture hall. They represent leaders, confidants, friends, and most importantly, true teachers.

"I've experienced both highs and lows in my ambitions to make everything of my college experience, but I've never questioned the genuine concern my professors have for my learning and my quest as a person. I've never just been a name in a grade book. With professors from many disciplines, I've encountered in them an honest interest in my dreams, my academic concerns, and my growth as a person.

"There are very few places where students have the chance to know their professor in the classroom, in their office, in their home, and as people that exist beyond the campus. At Transylvania, I've lived all of these possibilities, and the result is an atmosphere where professors have taught me not only about their subjects, but about life.”
