    I grew up less than a mile away from Juniata College. Juniata always had a special place in my heart however, I never thought that it would be the college that I attended as I thought that I wanted to go to college somewhere else to experience something outside of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. I even visited twelve schools all over the east coast trying to make my decision. However, when it was time to make my decision the choice was obvious. The choice was Juniata! I chose Juniata because it provided the best combination of unmatched academics and competitive athletics. Juniata has a very well-structured academic program with outstanding professors who follow your progress as a student. My experiences athletically have also been well worth it. While playing collegiate sports is not always easy it teaches you the value of hard work, time management and sacrifice. I am so happy that I decided to stay home and attend Juniata College.

    Juniata College is one of the most welcoming places I've ever been to. Everyone from the students, to the professors, and other staff are extremely kind and helpful. Anytime I had a question or just simply needed help with something, there were many students and professors who lended a helping hand. Academically, the material covers everything needed for your intended major. Not only that, but there are many opportunities to start working in the field upon the first year of arrival. This is an amazing college and it has definitely changed my life for the better!
    I love the atmosphere at Juniata! It's very welcoming and sort of "family-oriented" feeling; people from all over the world attend Juniata and love the inclusion and acceptance that comes with being a Juniata student and that is definitely something that I love and look for. Also, Juniata is awesome academically and offers tons of great opportunities for students of any year.
