    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.
    When I started my freshman year in 2010, I was an average, apathetic teen. When I graduated in 2014, I had been transformed into someone who cared about the world. Juniata taught me to approach life as a myriad of opportunities and abundance. It was a beautiful experience in a beautiful setting. I'm still very close with many of my friends from Juniata. They're all out there doing awesome things.
    I earned my BA in history, spent a few years post-graduation taking odd jobs and internships and exploring different opportunities and places. Juniata taught me how to do that. Now, I am employed full-time in a career I love. I highly recommend Juniata to anyone who is ready to have their mind opened.
