What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just completed 4 years at Juniata College. Overall, the class size is good, with around 30 students in a classroom. It's super easy to reach out to the professors during class and even outside of classes. The campus food is just ok, they are improving though. However, there is a BIG problem that is happening for international students. JC introduces itself as no racism, but there are so many racist people, even some professors, and staff. They don't care about what international students say and the staff at JC are bad. They are extremely racist! If something happens to an international student and it's because of them. They will blame it on the international student. If you are an international student, please reconsider! The image that JC has built is just fake. I don't understand! Racisms happen everywhere at school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Juniata! The class sizes can run large and disability services leave something to be desired, but those are my only complaints. The people are very helpful, and professors are always around. They are even willing to meet outside of their office hours if your class schedule conflicts, which is not often the case at other institutions. My advisors, students here have two, are helpful and genuinely concerned about my progress. Finally, there are a large number of study abroad programs to choose from, which is amazing for me as I love to travel! Plus, study abroad is affordable as it is the same price as tuition. I am glad I chose Juniata!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Juniata College is like home to me. I believe that this is the best place for me to succeed academically and personally. There are so many chances for opportunities and experiences at Juniata. The whole campus is friendly. The professors are amazing and always willing to meet even if it has to be outside of office hours and are open to conversation. Overall Juniata is one of the best higher educational facilities that anyone can attend. I truly love the campus and the whole atmosphere. The college also helps with transitioning from high school to the college level. Definitely my best choice and recommendation for anyone looking for a college to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Juniata College is an absolutely exceptional school for academics and student life. The class sizes are small and the professors genuinely care about students. We feel safe enough to leave our bags at the door to the cafeteria. Neither I nor any of my friends have never locked the door to our dorms and it hasn't been a problem or made us worry once. There are plenty of clubs to join with no Greek life because the school thinks that they encourage partying too much. There are still parties on campus on the weekends, but these are generally held at a distant part of campus so that students who do not wish to participate will not have to deal with the loud noise and intoxicated peers. Overall this is a school with strong morals and high expectations for its students while also not expecting them not to act like young adults who can enjoy alcohol responsibly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Juniata's environment is very unique and is perfect for some people but doesn't meet everyone's needs. It is a small, close-knit campus, but close-knit in the sense that there are lots of cliques. The academics and study abroad opportunities are honestly what makes it better than competing Liberal Art Colleges, and the professors are absolutely phenomenal. The administration has taken away a lot of things, such as off-campus housing, over the past year, and more often than not, their motive for decision-making is financial. The campus is quite beautiful, with lots of outdoor activities to participate in when the weather is nice, but what makes it more unique is the dynamic between the college and the town that it's located in. Huntingdon, PA is a very conservative and "in the middle of nowhere" kind of town, while Juniata is a college that attracts both liberal, conservative and "in the middle" students. This creates a very interesting and sometimes frustrating social atmosphere for the students, especially in such a sensitive and ever-changing period of time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Juniata College is an extremely small college. It is smaller than my high school. There are about 400 students per class. It is located in Middle of Nowhere, PA surrounded by farms and mountains. The fanciest place to eat in town is at Hoss's Steakhouse (which doesn't serve alcohol so don't go there for your 21st birthday.... not as fun as I would have hoped...) However, there is a Walmart, Weis, McDonalds (just renovated very nice), Wendys, Taco Bell, Burger King (just built next to Walmart), and many family diners. So if you're a city slicker it's going to be a huge adjustment for you. There are many places to go hiking and experience nature. But enough about the town lets talk about the school. Juniata College has the friendliest and most down to earth students and professors that I have ever met. The professors really care about your well-being and want you to learn the material. When something happens in the country or the world (ex: mass shootings, unwanted presidents, etc...) the professors take the time to have an open discussion in class to address any questions or comments students have and make sure all their students are emotionally well. Also, if you're in the environmental science or wildlife majors, Juniata has a field station on Raystown Lake where you can take classes, conduct research, embrace the outdoors because it is further into Nowhere, PA (15 students per semester). The class sizes here aren't that bad either. The largest class sizes you will have will be your freshman intro classes like Biology and Chemistry (maybe like 50-75 students?? No more than that). In my upper level class there are 7 students (including me, I'm a senior environmental science major btw). Now the food. I will be honest. It's not the best, but it's doable. We have many coffee stands in different buildings. We only have 1 dining hall, but some of the coffee stands serve breakfast and lunch. The dining hall just got renovated and we have a new vendor, so they're trying. Some days the food is delicious I'm about to gain the freshman 50, and some days you might want to starve (I'm a picky eater so this may not help so much, but I do like meat and it's deliciousness depends on the kind). But there is a variety of things served on the menu (burgers, pizza, deli, salad & soup bar, etc...) Okay so housing, not the best, but it's what you make it. You have to share a room with at least 1 other person in all dorms except for 1 (mainly juniors and seniors live in it). We don't have A/C in all buildings and all dorms have community bathrooms except for 2 buildings. But, our facilities staff are the best! I mean they are on it, I am a germophobe and those bathrooms are pretty darn clean. I mean still wear your shower shoes, put toilet paper on the toilet seats, and don't eat food off the floor. If Juniata excels at anything, they excel at having a ton of extracurricular activities. We don't have a greek life, but we have mannnnnnnnnnnyyyyyyyyy clubs, you name it. We have clubs ranging from academics to charity to video games to biking to Pokemon to archery to hunting. Honestly, you name it we probably have it. There are also many research opportunities in numerous majors (however we call them Programs of Emphasis). I personally did research on box turtles (recommended only for those that can handle being peed on and hissed at- 12/10 very sassy). Now time for what you've all been waiting for....*drum roll*...... Night Life! I personally am not involved in a lot of partaying (if that's how the cool kids say it), but from people that do they say it's good. People usually only go out on the weekends not so much during the week. For those 21 years old, there is a bar that has a karaoke night, very entertaining. For those who do not partake in those types of festivities, there are dry events held by Res Life and other clubs. There's movie nights in the pool, stress busters during midterms and finals, trivia nights (Disney jeopardy was harder than you think, and I consider myself the experts of the experts), and other things. There is a nerf club on Saturdays in the larger academic building, it gets pretty intense. One time I walked in the building and was forced to put my hands up when they realized I was a "civilian" and let me go. Overall Juniata is a great school, and you should at least check it out. We have a diverse group of students (surprisingly a lot of international students want to come to the middle of nowhere) and a lot of out of state students too (including myself).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school for me. I have ADHD and they provide good support. I really like my classes and the professors. I am impressed with the sciences courses. I love my music study. I like my group, but It can be hard to get to know people, because they are a little aloof.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Juniata College is a great college. It's a very community and academically based school. Most people here are really nice and chill. There are always going to be “those people,” but that’s happens wherever you go. everyone has their own friend group, but most people know each other and have a general respect. which is better than most schools in my opinion. The academics are great and the professors are very caring and helpful if you need it. I have only had an issue with one of the faculty members. At juniata you are not just a number. The work is hard like any college, but the hard work pays off. With juniata's POE system, students are allowed flexibility in what they want to learn. For a small school, there is a lot of variety of classes you can take. It's a small town around here, so unless you or a friend have a car it kinda sucks but juniata's activity board and the clubs usually plan events for students on the weekends. if you need to go to Walmart or something though, you can usually find someone to take you so it’s not that big of a deal. There are some places in walking distance though like the cliffs and some cafe's. i never get bored though because jab always has activities, but they might not be everyone’s thing. The weekends are kind of a hit or miss, there are parties basically every Saturday at the east dorms. they can either be really good or really bad. Friday nights are pretty quiet, its just kind of a movie and card game kinda night. The clubs here are okay if you find what you like. Im in the gaming club and its pretty fun. The dorms are okay. It could definitely be worse. most of the ra's are really nice. the rooms are okay but it gets really hot in the summer and early fall because there is no ac, but I think that’s an issue at most schools. the traditions here are really fun too. the food is okay, but is pretty inconsistent. it’s typical college food. it might be better than some schools, though. the staff there are super nice and know your name. juniata provides a nice amount of services like counseling. Juniata really cares about you as a student. I suffer from an anxiety disorder and juniata is very accommodating. I’m able to have an emotional support cat in my dorm! I am glad I chose to go to school here. It was my first choice. Mostly everyone here is so quirky and fun, it really is a special place. Yes, there are people who think they are better than everyone else but I realized that it happens at literally every school. I’ve made a really good group of friends here so that’s all that matters. However, I don't think it's for everyone. There is no greek life and not a huge school, so if you are looking for that then you probably wouldn't like it. The small class size is nice because everyone knows each other, but also word goes around quickly. Juniata can be unorganized and annoying at times, but I know I picked the right school for me. This school is great for you if you are outdoorsy and looking for a personalized education! I think everyone should at least check it out.
