4 College Junior

Diversity: One of the growing issues of concern at the school is diversity and balancing it in a liberal arts institution. The school has maintained an effort to resolve disagreements and the president is constantly engaging students on all levels in debates about diversity and its role here.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love my major and the faculty that I interact and learn from.

3 College Junior

Academics: The school offers an array of services that allow the students to process their career more smoothly. Yet, the school is still young and there are a lot of new and changing topics that keeps the school on its toes.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is very calm but there is some tension between the school community and the town community.

1 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The school tries to maintain and enforce its rules. However, they could use more enforcement.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The academic experience is what makes Juniata College an exceptional place. The professors are very supportive and challenging, which keeps you wanting to improve yourself.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school and the faculty offer the students an arena of connections and opportunities that allows students to get ahead in their post-graduation employment prospects. The problem with students who do not secure a job upon graduation is that they don't start searching for job options until their last few months in school.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Food in town triumphs the school's dinning services.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dinning facilities are acceptable for students who have graduated from the public school system in America. As an international student, I found the food choices very limited and the quality and nutritious value to be very poor. The operation hours also are different from my culture.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is goo to live on campus because it makes everything accessible.But, the cost of living on campus is too high for the value.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are no fraternities or sororities on campus and thus provides a less alienating culture on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There's a large amount of variety in the dining hall and provides options for students with dietary restrictions.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The first time I visited campus was in the spring of my senior year. The second there was an opportunity to talk to other peers, people jumped at the chance. People are extremely friendly and the tight knit community makes this school rather unique.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere in regard to students is rather welcoming and supports the harsh transition from high school to college, especially for students who are moving away from their parents for this educational pursuit.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school provides a great amount of money in financial aid for students of merit. The school also provides additional aid through its fund for students of financial need.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some classes are pre-registered for you depending on your major and may seem a bit constrictive. However there are many course options within the school and many different times for the same course, giving students leeway to organize their own schedule.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The school is surrounded by the natural environment and provides many opportunities for science majors to have hands on experience.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The housing off campus typically is reserved for the upperclassmen and may make it seem impossible to obtain as there is a limited amount of space.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There are many areas to go on campus for students to hang out and traditions such as Inbound and the Storming of the Arch provide ease while transitioning and cultural assimilation.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The academic programs are extremely flexible and the amount of required courses are much less here. There is a large degree of freedom when choosing academic programs while earning a degree.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Most of the students at the college participate in at least one sport or in an intramural yearly. The school definitely shows a great amount of support and spirit as many people attend games.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school follows its policies on alcohol and misdemeanors very strictly as the school believes that the safety of the students is the most important. Consequences of more serious misdemeanors include being forced to leave the school, thus showing the harshness and serious approach of the school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school takes personal safety very seriously and enforces laws on drinking and sexual assault. In such a small town, the police have no trouble enforcing the law and RA's enforce the issues in the dorm. The campus is rather safe as there are people everywhere and the close community atmosphere only supports the idea of safety.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The winter time is absolutely brutally cold, but one spring hit, it is beautiful and perfect.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Although the town is small and run down, there are many hidden gems

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Too good to be true? Possibly, but overall, most Juniata students really do love Juniata. They don’t always like it, but most of the time they do. Why do they love it, and why do they not? Because Juniata is a small college in a small town. Yes, it has its advantages, and it has its drawbacks. If something’s going to kill your experience, it’s bound to be its smallness. Students and professors are warm, welcoming, and largely open-minded. Opportunities on campus and around the world are literally endless and growing.

The College is not perfect, but if something’s wrong or broken, the administration does its best to fix it. Students appreciate that. As with anything you love, it’s true that sometimes you just don’t like whatever it is you say you adore, but that doesn’t change your feelings in the end. That pretty much sums up the Juniata experience. Students work hard, have fun, find their passions, and prepare for the world and the future. They also occasionally pull their hair out from claustrophobia. But in the end, they do appreciate Juniata, both while they’re there and after they graduate. And in the end, their overall experiences are precisely why they recommend Juniata so strongly and so happily.
