Why Transy? “I decided to come to Transy because I found a campus community here that is entirely invested in the success and well-being of each and every individual member. One student or professor’s success goes a long way in allowing every member of the body to take pride in what it means to be a Transylvania Pioneer and I think that aspect is invaluable”
