What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
KEEP IN TOUCH WITH THE COUNSELORS. Since the very beginnings of my college search, Juniata has stood out as being the most personable and friendly with the admission process. My counselor, Josh, has been in touch with me since my junior year, and has helped answer my questions. While that should be standard, Juniata's done more. I've gotten a personal phone call from a Juniata student who wanted to check in on my college searching and see if I had any questions. Josh has also sent me local articles on things I might find interesting about the school. Even my acceptance letter felt handwritten. They take a very personal interest in potential students, just enough that you feel important to them, without being spammy and obnoxious.
I also recommend the Open House events, or just visiting in general. (Plus, if you visit or apply online, there's no application fee!)

Don't be afraid to try new things or to ask questions. Find your passion(s), be dedicated, stay busy, and you'll have a blast! Also, keep a good balance between your academics and social activities. Leave time to relax and have fun on the weekends, but stay on top of your workload.
Alexandra from Kimberton, PA
Take advantage at what Juniata College has to offer. The college gives so many opportunities to be active and to make a difference.
Ashley
Dont come here if you are a liberal, or are looking for intellectual conversations.
Arev from Falls Church, VA
Have a car, Juniata is out in the middle of nowhere and to go anywhere interesting you need a car (or a friend with a car). Pack for all sorts of weather, you can experience all four seasons in a week sometime. Go to Lobsterfest to scope out all the clubs and societies but don't actually eat the lobster.
Chastity from Reading, PA
Make sure to try and interact with the school as much as possible. Send e-mails to your admissions representative to ask questions and to ask for opportunities to visit/schedule an interview. However don't be too annoying. Also, make sure you keep your grades up in school and perform well on either the ACT or the SAT since Juniata takes either one. You can also apply here with no test results if that is what you prefer. All in all, make sure you have a good relationship with your admissions rep.
Ichiro from Brooklyn, NY
Prospective students really need to visit the campus and sit in on classes while students are here to understand if Juniata College is going to be the right fit. The atmosphere of the campus, students, and faculty is one thing unique to this school and is either a hit or miss with many people. The small highly personalized classes and Programs of Emphasis (POE's, comparable to majors) are things that students really need to experience and hear about first hand from students to understand their uniqueness and significance in higher education.
Calli from Carlisle, PA
Be prepared to work. Some classes are, of course, more intense than others, but for the most part, there are no easy As here. You will be made to work for your grades, but if you put in the effort and show that you're trying, teachers here are very receptive to it.
CJ from Brooklyn, NY
Work hard
Haining from China
Find a group of close friends. Regardless of whether there is anything to do on or off campus, if you have close friends, you will never be bored.
