Getting Involved on Campus: How and Why

Did you know that getting involved on campus may boost your GPA? A recent study of Transylvania students showed that there is a strong correlation between academic success and organizational involvement: Students who are more involved have higher GPAs.

Admission Ambassadors

More than 70 dynamic student organizations provide opportunities to get involved, develop leadership skills, cultivate strong friendships, serve in the community, and—most importantly—have fun.

Approximately 80 percent of our students are involved in at least one on-campus organization, and many students are highly involved in multiple organizations. Our students understand how these experiences help them grow while also benefiting their classmates, the university, and the Lexington community.

We are committed to enhancing and supporting the academic experience by providing a wide range of opportunities for students to get involved—student organizations, Greek life, large-scale events, educational programming, international experiences, leadership retreats, and much more.

Every fall term at Transylvania kicks off with an Involvement Fair that offers a look at all the possible ways to get involved. And if that's not enough, we welcome you to start a group of your own that represents your unique interests. Contact the Student Involvement and Leadership Office for more information.
