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 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.

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

I would reccomend not to chose the hardest school you are accepted to, you want to be challenged however you also want the opportunity to have a fun time and be social. I think that it is acceptable to take time off and look around at other schools if you dont think that you have found the perfect school or if you don't think that you are ready for school. College is supposed to be the best time of your life so make sure it is perfect and has the correct balance between academics and social activites. There is no need to rush into school and waste your money if you don't think you found the right school or if you aren't ready. Also follow your own beliefs, don't be influenced by your peers, make the decisions that you want to make not what you think will make you cool or make you fit in. There is no need to spend your whole college career trying to impress people, that was what high school was about and don't you think that you had enough of that?

What's unique about your campus?

The school is very friendly, there are no fraternities or sororities which seems to make the student body much more accepting than in other schools. The school turns their heads the other way regarding on campus parties, likely because the lack of these sororities and fraternities. The closest our school has to fraternities and sororities would be sports teams.

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

My school is under the impression that they are a very diverse school and incredibly accepting of minorities however as a Jewish student and a friend of a multi-racial student I feel that the school is not as diverse or accepting as they are under the impression they are. The school also fails to cater to the minorities in the way they should (ex: I have mid-terms on Yom Kippur and finals on Hannukah).

Make sure you choose a school based on the type of education you will get and not the social scene. There is always somewhere you can go to party, but you only get one chance to choose the type of education you'll get.

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

All students need to research what college is going to fit theirs needs the best. What school has the best program for their major is an important part. Choosing what size classes would make you comfortable is important. Students need to get out and join groups and meet new people to make the most of their college career.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone could attend this school.

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

In all honesty I would advise students and parents to attend an inexpensive school. I've realized that it doesn't have as much to do with what school you attend (as in one known for being prestigious), but what you are able to make of yourself at that school and there after. It's nice to be able to enjoy your education without worrying about placing such a heavy financial burden upon your parents and even yourself. Other really important factors in deciding on a school is the overall atmosphere of the campus, what the professors are like, and the academic programs provided. Sometimes students will just know if a campus is right for them by taking a tour. I think the one true way of indicating what school one should attend is based soley on gut instincts. If a students trusts there gut feeling about a specific school they'll most likely end up where they were meant to be all along. Deciding on a college is often made out to be much harder than it should. If one knows what they're looking for in a school, they don't need to know anything else.

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

Not enough financial aid is the worst thing about my school. Most money is used to fund athletics and not academics. The system does not account for multiple factors, such as what the family income really goes toward when deciding who is eligible for need-based aid. I didn't recieve as much scholarship money and moregrants that I feel I deserved. If Juniata was able to help students more with the high costs of attending, it wouldn't be such a burden to students to get an education at Juniata.

It is much smaller and provides a more intimate setting than others I looked at.

Find a college that fits you. It should not feel like you are going to be lost in the large numbers or bored out of your mind because it is too small. It all depends on what is right for you. You should also look into what major you are considering and how current students in that major feel about it. Since I was interested in chemistry, I found a school that was the right size for me and had a good chemistry program. Those are my best recomendations.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Juniata College is good for people who are interested in getting an education. Juniata is very focused on giving you a great education but you must be willing to work for it. There is the potential for a lot of individual attention here at Juniata. Classes are typically small and there are plenty of opportunities for students to meet either in small groups or one-on-one with professors.
