3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: It's clean but not different form each other.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The area around the college is very rural- we're right in the mountains. There are little shops and eateries to go to but your best bet is on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Standing Stone is totally the best coffee house ever!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Juniata college is in a small town so there are some diners and the common fast food restaurants like McDonald's. The only off campus place to get food within walking distance is a sheetz, which is a gas station that makes fast food as well. All other places are at a distance which one should drive.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't too many places to go to that are super close by except for fast food. Although the few sit down places there are, are very nice. However there is always a 30 min drive to state college. And for those midnight snack runs Sheets is open all night and is right around the corner. You will always run into some fellow students there no matter what time it is.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Huntingdon may be small, but its restaurants keep students well fed throughout the year. It's true that students often wish for more of them and more variety of cuisine, but for the nonadventurous eater, there's a good selection for Huntingdon's size. Restaurants around town are also easy to get to. A quick car ride or—if you're willing—a 20-minute walk will bring you downtown. While Mimi's might be more reserved for special occasions, students can always be found at Boxer's.

What you won't find is much cultural variety—there's no food bearing resemblance to anything Indian, Greek, or Mexican (not even Tex-Mex). However, there are charming diners, plenty of fast food representation, and lots of pizza places. OIP is immensely popular. Sheetz runs are a favorite pastime of hungry studiers in need of a quick study break, and students can be found at this gas station/convenience store at all hours getting food to go. Huntingdon's selection is no match for that of a city, but for its size, it holds its own quite well. And if culinary claustrophobia sets in, students can always hit the road. Altoona and especially State College are chock-full of great restaurants to satisfy anyone's appetite.
