What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Harbor no fear. Dont' fear smoking or drinking, but don't fear looking like a loser while abstaining. Don't fear or dwell on whether or not you're going to get laid, and don't be afraid to turn a girl down if you don't care about her or care too much. Don't fear the sense of swagger that comes with waking up in a girl's bed, covered in hickeys, and don't fear the solitude of waking up alone. Don't be afraid to pursue a passion, and don't be afraid to remain content. Don't fear; it'll make your dick soft and it'll shut you up when you should be screaming at the top of your lungs. Most importantly don't be afraid because you don't know a single goddamn thing, because that's just the first step.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There seems to be a marked lack of socio-economic as well as racial diversity. Other than that I haven't found anything particularly frustrating.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Kaitlyn, There is a big world out there waiting for you to make a move. At this point, I know your thinking about just surviving until graduation and choosing the school that you will be at for the next 4 years. I've been there, I've seen what future your choices hold. It is unimaginable. You will learn so much more in the first year and a half at Juniata than you ever thought possible. Not all of this is through success, and most of you learning will come from when you fail. You will fail, not necessarily in the academic sense, like you won't get F's so just chill out, but you will face obstacles and not always rise to the occasion. You will disappoint people, and yourself once or twice. However, you need to remember that you will gain wisdom. You will learn to care less about the opinions of others, you will see how important it is to follow you dreams, and you will finally understand that you are worth the work and the pain. Failure is neccessary for success and remember God and your parents are always on your side. Integritas & Agape.

What's unique about your campus?

When I was applying for college, I really never had a specific campus that I wanted to enroll in. Honestly, I never gave college much thought during high school. I just assumed an undergraduate program was the next step. I did not dream of a certain campus, but I knew that I would feel it when I found the right one. Juniata was exactly that. The campus is small, 1400 students, but it is warm and friendly. It feels like home. Also it's very academically driven. You will work your hardest here and become the best "you" possible.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst aspect of Juniata is probably it's focus on the Sciences. I really do feel like it pushes Pre-Med and other Health Occupations a lot. Granted, it is one of the top undergraduate schools for Health Occupations, and has a 99% placement for it's students. I feel like many other majors are swept under the rug, when it is challengeing for every major at Juniata. Other majors are viewed as low challenge fields. I speak from experience as I was a Pre-Med student up until last semester. Juniata needs to broaden it's appeal.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Juniata College has a remarkably inviting and friendly community feel to it. I've never been so instantaneously comfortable in a new place as I have been here. There is also a "POE" (Program of Emphasis) program rather than majors which allows students great flexibility in their studies. There are no graduate students at Juniata so all research is done by undergraduates, making it easy for undergraduates to participate in and design their own projects.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice is to choose a college that you think will give you or your child the best possible experience. There are many schools that are well known that people assume to be the best but this is simply not true. While an Ivy League university may very well give you or your child a good education they will most likely not provide the best possible experience. College is a time for study, it's true. A time to prepare for one's upcoming life in the world. But college is also a time to explore oneself, to enjoy one's time in a new place and seek out exactly who they are. I applied and was accepted to an Ivy League institution but I chose Juniata College because of the community. The administration is wonderful, the education is excellent, and most of all I'm comfortable there. I feel like this college will easily become a major part of my life not only because of the opportunities it will provide for me but for the wonderful memories I will have of my time on campus

What's unique about your campus?

The community. Juniata is welcoming and friendly with an open-minded student body. There is about a 50/50 mix of politically conservative and liberal students that live cohesively. Also, students are welcome to participate in parties but there is no pressure to do so if one doesn't wish to. Alcohol is fairly common on campus, but again there is no pressure to participate. No one will judge or think any less of you if you don't drink or go to parties. Students balance their studies and social lives very well at Juniata.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Students mainly should not go to a college that they know their friends are going to attend. College will probably be one of THE best moments of your life, but you shouldn't waste it away not studying. Don't choose a school if you have heard it's a partying school because partying will not feed you with ambrosia in the future when you graduate. Find a college that specializes and emphasizes on what you truly want to pursue in the future and don't judge it by appearances. Schedule an overnight stay as a prospective student. You'll know when you find the right college.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There's not that many activities since the region is so rural in terms of shopping or going to the mall. The closest thing we have that's like a mall to us is Walmart. Other than that, you would have to find a friend to drive you to Penn State.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Some may say that deciding on the perfect college is a difficult process, which it very well can be. For me, the process was trying, but coming to terms with myself made the selection of my school easier than inticipated. I always tell prospective students to not worry about every detail of every school they look at. Narrow your choices down to a few schools, attend over nights at the schools and choose the one you find yourself the happiest at, the one that you can really picture yourself at. If you find the school you really love, you will find a way to make it work financially. When you are at the school you love, one can really make the most of the college experience because they become more driven to do well in their studies. All in all, do what makes you happy because speaking from experience, you learn more and make the most of your life because of this.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

For an individual to find the right college for themself they have to do three main things. First they must decide the size and location of the perspective colleges. It is important to attend a college where one feels at home and can both imagine themself studying and relaxing. Second they must consider the average workload a student will face when attending the perspective college. Often schools that demand more work out of their students will have better reputations on a graduate level. A perspective student should consider the maximum amount of work they expect to be doing. Lastly it is very important to consider the cost of attending the institiution. Remember to consider financial aid when considering schools. These are the three things that I did and I am very happy with my choice of college because of it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Academically driven, fun-loving individuals should attend this school. A person should enjoy pushing the limits of thier skills through heavy workloads yet not be scared to relax and "party" if they are even considering Juniata.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Do not consider Juniata College if you are not ready to handle an extremely challenging workload.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

follow your gut second, logic first. You just need a degree. College is fun anywhere if you want to have fun. Go somewhere good, but don't waste too much money on a good name.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

What it meant to live in a rural community in central PA. It was truly a study abroad experience for me coming from WAshington DC.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How much fun we had. People are all very nice, down to earth - a bit folky. They want to have a simple and good time. If you are up for it, you will have a great time and meet wonderful friends.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't stress about finding the right school. It's all about finding what you like once you're there. Whatever you choose, you can find satisfaction if you look for it.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants to go into the sciences without doing much work, or anyone who likes clubbing. It's a small town.
