Our History:

Transylvania University, set in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, was the first university in the United States west of the Allegheny Mountains. Founded in 1780, the college has seen itself transform from the most critically acclaimed Southern medical school of the 1800s to one of the top liberal arts schools of the present day.

The Rambler, originally The Crimson-Rambler, has stood alongside Transylvania for years as its student-run newspaper, experiencing as many ups and downs as the school itself. Yet now we, the staff of The Rambler, are bringing it into the new generation.

Our newspaper is a collection of articles which are essential and interesting to the Transy community but whose topics may reach far beyond our small campus. We are also determined to keep The Rambler an integral part of Transy life; our paper copies are released each Thursday afternoon and can be found throughout campus, in areas such as the Front and Back Lobby of Forrer Hall, the 1780, and Jazzman’s Cafe.
