  • I am an international student at Transy, and I've never met more friendly people the world over.
  • The education was top-notch but the social aspect is somewhat limiting. Not a lot of diversity. Great opportunities to study abroad and direct your own education.
  • Oldest University in the area, high academic quality and long history of successful graduates
  • Dracula went to this school, so it must be awesome
  • Nice people

Where to stay in Lexington

Downtown Lexington offers accommodations ranging from budget to luxury, but for easier access to the area's famous horse parks and farms, consider staying just north of the city proper. Many rustic bed and breakfasts on the edge of town offer guests a chance to stay at a farmhouse or log cabin. These properties provide not only every comfort of home, but also much more privacy than a downtown hotelĀ could offer. To avoid driving to Lexington's major urban attractions, consider a hotel near the city's convention center.
