Overnight Visits

Many students wish to take advantage of our overnight visit program. An overnight will provide you with the best overall view of Transylvania because you can experience both the academic and social sides of campus life. We have a group of students, admissions ambassadors, who have an extra bed in their room just for you—no sleeping on the floor at Transy!

Space is limited, so we ask that you speak directly with our campus visit coordinator to schedule your overnight experience. She can be reached at (800) 872-6798 or (859) 233-8242.

Overnight visits are only available for Seniors and only during the academic year.
