2 College Freshman

Diversity: we are not a diverse campus

2 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi here is the most annoying thing on campus.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The parties are fun if you know how to party right

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Huntingdon itself is sketchy, but the college is really nice not a lot of time is spent off campus by students.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Juniata is in the middle of nowhere and coming from out-of-state it can be a struggle getting home and back especially because there aren't a lot of students from around my area.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Most students that need aid get it, however understanding the requirements to keep your aid through all four years can be confusing if your scholarships are merit based.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Central Pennsylvania winter weather can be pretty bad, but in the spring, summer, and fall campus is absolutely beautiful and everyone enjoys activities like volleyball on the quad.

4 College Freshman

Academics: If you work hard and apply yourself you will get the most out of an excellent education.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The academics at Juniata are unparalleled, the professors are great, the classes are interesting, and it is easy to be involved. Career Services and academic advising makes it easy to plan out your college career and prepare for your future.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love my program, however at this school the biology majors think they are the most important people and that everyone else is inferior which can be super annoying.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Being in the middle of nowhere and everyone being super nice and friendly makes Juniata a super safe school, there isn't a lot of theft like other schools, guys are (for the most part) respectful at parties, and Public Safety is there to help if you need it. However, the health and wellness center is open at scarce and weird times and they don't provide free or easily accessible birth control for students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Baker food can be pretty s****y and you only get like three guest meals per semester, but Muddy has some good options especially if you have DCB.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Juniata sporting events are fun to go to, but we are not known for having particularly good athletics and the school spirit is a little weak. The football team did pretty well this year and going to the Men's Volleyball games is always a good time with a great view.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: At Juniata underage drinking is easy to do if you so chose as long as your not stupid about it and don't have to take a trip to the ER. Drugs however are strictly regulated and getting caught with them has serious consequences at this school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of the on-campus housing options are close to classes and for the most part well kept. As a freshman I lived in Sherwood which some people consider "the worst dorm", but I loved it and my closest friends are the girls from my floor.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: At Juniata it is totally your choice whether or not to drink and/or use drugs, there is no peer pressure to be involved in these activities, and both the people who chose to and who chose not to can have fun at school.

3 College Student

Weather: I would give higher score if the spring comes sooner.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Living in the campus depends on which dorm you have to live in. If you live pretty far from the cafeteria or classroom, then it's very bad.

4 College Student

Diversity: In Juniata College you can find the diversity every where. Lots of international students, especially Chinese.

3 College Student

Majors: I don't know about admission since I'm exchange student. BUT I really do want to study here so that's why I'm trying to find outside scholarship because transferring student can't have financial aid as much as student who apply for freshmen.

4 College Student

Majors: It's great to be in a place you want to be and do what you want to do.

5 College Student

Academics: I like professors. They really care about their students.

Parking: I think it's not enough for student who owns a car.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: People here are not bad at all. They are all friendly.

3 College Student

Greek Life: I only know that it's not that bad if you are geek.

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.
