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

Selecting a college is one of the biggest decisions of a young person's life. Finding the right school is often a long and grueling process, but once you find out what you like and don't like in a school, it is much easier to find the right one. It is best to visit as many schools as you can because that is the only way to see what the school is really like. Books and websites can only tell you so much. You have to go to the school and see how you feel. Also, it should ultimately be the student's decision; not the parents'. The student has to get the feeling that it is the right place for them because they are the ones living there for four years. And when you do get "the feeling" you will know. You know that that one school is where you belong. Once you find the right school, get involved and don't be afraid to go out on the weekends and meet people. You only get four years at college and you have to make the most of it. It is truly an experience you won't forget.

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

The location is not the best because it is in the middle of nowhere, but that also forces us to be more creative to keep ourselves entertained. The school also does a good job of bringing in activities since Huntingdon is such a small town.

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

Research all of your options and alternatives when choosing a college that is the "perfect match". Weigh out the positive and negative aspects of each college. Don't settle for a college that is more financially suitable and downgrade is academics, just to save a dollar or two. If you are going to invest in your future, don't cheat yourself of a academically enriching environment for and atomshpere that lacks in such departments. Finally, don't forget to visit each college. Pictures cannot nearly express the warmth and security a campus provides/ or lacks in person.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing with Juniata college is the cost of tutiton. It is very expensive to attend Juniata, and I wish there was more financial aid available to me. This college has so much academically to offer students, it is just very costly.

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

During the application process, make sure you have asked teachers ahead of time for letters of recommendation. Also, get your applications in as fast as possible to make sure you have the maximum time for your number one school to look at it. During your first year of college, ask a friend who has been through their first year for any advice and for suggestions on products to buy for your room.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of student that should attend Juniata College needs to be dedicated to their studies and make sure they do not fall behind in their work. But in order to get the full experience of the college, it is also important to attend activities out of the class room to make sure you make new friends and become informed about subjects that range from the arts to science.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you do not like a small town feel, Juniata is not for you. While the campus is spread out over a decent amount of land, the town of Huntingdon is a good 10 minute walk and does not include many shopping areas. Also, those who want more of a party school will be disappointed. While there are activities over the weekend, it usually lasts one night and not during the week.

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

The best advice I can give is make sure you feel a sense of belonging. As a student, the moment you walk on a campus, you should feel like you belong, like you it is somewhere you can grow boh academically and emotionally. As a parent, you shoudl feel like your child will be safe on campus without you there by their side every minute. This will alleviate a major sense of worrying and also allow your child to grow individually.

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

The tuition...it's really hard to afford when you're doing it all on your own with no family support

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone looking for a large school or city-based...or anyone that wants cliques.

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

Take a chance at the unfamiliar, you may learn things about yourself and the world that you never knew. College is a growing and learning process; one learns best when they know don't know much about anything. So keep a fresh, open mind and start off with a clean slate! Step outside of your comfort zone and make some intelligent mistakes. Find the college that helps you find the best you.

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

The close mindedness. People that go to this school tend to be from central Pennsylvania and they don't know much about the culture outside of their small town. It makes for extremely awkward situations, interactions, and discussions during the course of the school year.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is looking for a small friendly environment. Someone who loves the outdoors, and someone who probably is conservative. A person who is looking to study in science or the medical field would find my school more than suitable.
