| I applied to Juniata because the online application was free. I was very surprised when the college decided, seemingly out of no where, to consider me for a fellowship solely based on my academic record and SAT/ACT scores.|
I traveled to the campus for an interview for this fellowship. My expectations were low. However, they scheduled a tour of the campus for me when I was in for my interview, and that tour was enough to make me love the campus.
I was skeptical about Juniata from the beginning, and became less and less so over time up until my first week of the freshman semester. Then, I knew that I loved Juniata.It's true! I love it here! I am applying to be "peer leaders" for various campus activities so that I can talk to skeptical prospective students / freshmen and let them know that I, too, judged Juniata by its size instead of by its quality.

| I am currently a junior here at JC. I was hesitant to come here at first because of its slow pace. While Juniata does reside in Huntingdon, which is not known for any sort of night life, I would not choose to go anywhere else.Since my arrival on campus over two years ago, I've felt I've gained another family; another family that just so happens to consist of 1,600 students and faculty. No matter what educational realm you fall into, Juniata will provide you with support through awesome advisors and a close-knit community. That being said, the curriculums here are very challenging, but a Juniata degree holds a lot of weight.If I were a high school senior looking for a school, I would pick Juniata again. It is what it is, which is an awesome school for academics and a place where I've always felt valued. So, come with an open mind and don't let the small-town drive you away. Everything you need is here. |

| When I first came to visit Juniata, I thought that it was a beautiful campus, friendly professors, small class sizes, and I felt very comfortable walking around the campus. I was nervous because I knew that it was in Central PA and I come from a larger area so I was worried about the diversity of the student body mostly and the social atmosphere. However, the students here strive to be open minded and they want to learn about different topics. I think Juniata offers many opportunities to experience different cultures and it has been improving slowly in the last couple of years. After being here for three years, I can say that Juniata is a great school if you are looking for a small, close-knit feel. My problem with Juniata is the location of the school which at first is nice but the weather can switch up at times and the surrounding town of Huntingdon, PA is not that exciting especially if you are from a big city/looking a big city social scene. I know of two local bars that students go to but besides that there are really no club venues in Huntingdon. I love my professors which is one of the main reasons why I stayed here. They are very accessible and are willing to help with anything! Juniata's faculty and staff really cares about students and I love the school for that. My classes are good, some I love more than others but I have no big issues with how they are taught. My biggest suggestion for anyone looking to attend Juniata is try to come in with an open mind. Students at Juniata are an eclectic bunch where you will have the modern day hippie to the hipster to the prep walking around campus. If you can handle seeing people walking around without shoes and playing Quidditch on the quad, then you will be fine. I love the friends that I have made here and if I had the option I would research more school but I would chose Juniata again. Get involved in at least one club while at Juniata! It will definitely help so you can feel that there is something to do. There are a ton of clubs here and you can always start one if it does not exist here. |
