Juniata is a beautiful, private, liberal arts college. You really have the opportunity to learn what you want to learn. For example I have individualized my degree for Environmental Chemistry. I am taking classes in both departments to get a customized degree tailored for what I want to do in life. However the small size comes with some drawbacks. No Greek life, which can be a pro or con depending on what you want in a college. At times, it feels like an upgraded high school, with most people knowing one another and word spreading quickly across campus. That being said, the short walks to anywhere on campus and the great community will give a great experience for anyone looking for a small college experience.

My experience here was excellent! I was lucky to have fantastic professors and peers, and I had an excellent academic experience.
I am grateful to be attending a college with such excellence. As a potential student, one of the things that attracted me to Juniata College was its small classroom size. While attending, I have taken courses with as few as nine students. Because of this uniqueness, students are encouraged to create relationships with the professors. Students are not just a number here. Professors care about each and every one of us, and they put a lot of effort to help us succeed during our time here, and in our future. As a science major, the small class size is also a bonus because the lab courses give us hands on experience with instruments such as an NMR or GCMS machines. Although it can seem a little pricey, the school offers a generous amount of financial aid to its students. As far as campus life goes, there are plenty of opportunities if you're inclined to engage in them. Clubs aren't all that active, but there are usually events on campus every weekend.
