What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
Juniata is a perfect school if you like knowing students and professors on campus. It is small (about 1,600 students), with challenging professors, who love what they teach, and provide a learning environment that is both challenging and lots of fun. Their's always something to do outside of class, with a community of people who support whatever it is that you are passionate about.
Alexandra from Kimberton, PA
Juniata College is a great place to learn, grow as an individual, and feel comfortable among your peers, staff, and professors. The people here are great and they really want you to succeed. As long as you put in the effort and commit yourself to being successful, the people here will help you in doing so.
Ichiro from Brooklyn, NY
Juniata College has a small town big community feel that is comfortable and relaxed. This college is relatively small, but provides large opportunities particularly through stellar academics and a strong push to travel and expand upon the curriculum outside the classroom setting. Faculty, staff, and community members are very approachable and make this campus feel like one big family.
Calli from Carlisle, PA
I love this school. They worked with me when I applied (after getting laid off from my job) so I could attend. The people and staff I've met are wonderful, and I know I'm building friendships that will last for a very long time.
CJ from Brooklyn, NY
Very warm environment gets hands on with everything, changing life.
Haining from China
Juniata is a very good school that values its academics highly. The social aspects are valued just as much as academics. I tries to make each student happy with their experience.
