College Senior

Party Scene: Most parties take place on the fraternity halls. There are themes and lots of music and people. Many students enjoy these parties a great deal.

College Senior

Athletics: Most of the teams are really good and win a lot. However, this is a Division III school, and many students are angered by the disgusting amount of money that is spent on athletics instead of academics. A lot of students care about athletics and have high school spirit. Others have never been to any sporting event.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are old and decrepit. If you live on fraternity or sorority halls, you can get over the low quality of these dorms because you live next to 30+ of your best friends. The newer dorms are better, but not by much. This college is not renowned for it's housing, but the atmosphere usually makes up for it.

3 College Senior

Administration: The administration as a whole is decent. I don't have much to say about it, except that I wish they would lower tuition.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is huge on this campus. This university has one of the top percentages of Greek students in the country. Greek students are leaders on campus and hundreds of students join Greek organizations every year. Greek life provides lots of opportunities for its members. There is little animosity between the majority of Greek and non-Greek students. Plenty of students choose to not go Greek and still have a great presence on campus. Non-Greek students are still invited to almost all Greek-sponsored activities.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The Department of Public Safety (DPS) on campus is decent. They try sometimes, but more often seem to be more focused on writing parking tickets than doing much else. However, they will pick you up and drive you anywhere on campus if you feel unsafe walking there on your own. Many students are trusting and feel pretty safe on campus. It is not unusual for students to leave their dorms unlocked, and theft on campus is very rare.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Lexington is a fun and exciting city. There are tons of concerts, college games (notably the UK wildcats right down the road), restaurants, and local businesses and places to check out. Students love the variety of things to do on the weekends in Lexington. Overall, it's a pretty cool city. Traffic is terrible at almost all times of the day though. It takes way too long to drive anywhere in town.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The school is right in the middle of some scary neighborhoods. The surrounding neighborhoods are not safe, and they are not somewhere that most students would want to live. The close off-campus housing is not expensive, but the cost of your safety is pretty high. I live off-campus, but I live 15+ minutes away, in a much safer area.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I got a merit-based scholarship (based on my 4.0+ high school GPA and my 29 ACT composite score), but it only covers about a quarter of the overall (expensive) tuition. The school administration wants to help students be able to attend the school, but I do not think they provide enough financial aid to allow most students to attend without having to take out large student loans.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors at Transy really care a lot about their students and encourage students to come to their office hours if they need any help. Courses vary in difficulty, but you are almost guaranteed to come out of a class with some sort of long-lasting knowledge. Class sizes vary from ~5 students to <30. Most are somewhere in the middle with about 15-20 students. Many classes focus on discussions and want students to give input during lectures.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I am definitely looking forward to finding an internship, especially during the summer. I only have a few concerns simply because I go back home to Texas during the summer. I also haven't created a solid resume.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I honestly wish we had more school spirit and fan support for sports other than basketball. I also wish the weight gym at Beck was bigger and spacious.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I am very happy the Administration sets strict rules on those who consume alcohol and or are under he influence of drugs.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm guessing a lot of the parties are great because I always see people throwing up and telling me how great the parties were. I personally do not attend any parties.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Safety is always a con simply because the area surounding Transy is not very safe.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Needs to be more variety instead of justbasketball

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not involved, but I see it as very cliquey.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live and spend their time on campus.
