The Alumni Association sponsors a variety of programs designed to stimulate alumni communication and fellowship and keep alumni informed of Transylvania's progress.
On-line community is the newest feature of this site. It is a secure and password-protected service that enables you to keep in touch with classmates, search the alumni directory, update your personal and professional information, post class notes, sign up for a lifetime email address, and register for alumni events.
Alumni chapters and regional alumni groups foster a sense of fellowship among alumni living in various regions through social events and networking. The six chapters are: Bluegrass Alumni Chapter (Lexington area), Transylvania Alumni Louisville Chapter, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Alumni Chapter, Chicago Area Alumni Chapter, Nashville Alumni Chapter, and Washington, D.C., Metro Area Alumni Chapter. In other areas, informal alumni groups and regional representatives help the Alumni Office coordinate gatherings.
TransE-Mail is a monthly electronic newsletter sent by the Alumni Office to all alumni with an email address on file. To subscribe to emails from Transy, send your preferred email address to email@example.com. Alumni also receive the Transylvania magazine three times a year, which includes an extensive Alumni News & Notes section.
Alumni Weekend in the spring is an annual event that draws many alumni back to campus for class reunion receptions and dinners, the Pioneer Hall of Fame Dinner, Alumni Celebration Luncheon, and many other activities. Reunion committees help promote attendance for classes celebrating five-year reunions. Robert Barr Society inductions are a special part of Alumni Weekend, when tribute is paid to alumni whose class graduated 50 years ago.
Pioneer Alumni Recruiting Team (PART) helps the admissions office recruit new students. PART members may represent Transylvania at college fairs and high school award ceremonies; write letters or make telephone calls; offer their homes for receptions or meetings between admissions counselors and prospective students; or "adopt" an applicant. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kim Chaffer Schroeder, associate dean of admissions, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
