"My time at Juniata College was quite transformational for me because I met so many inspirational and supportive people during my four years there. Beyond making friends that I'll always cherish, I had the opportunity to join an undergraduate molecular biology lab. From my lab members to my mentors, I could not have asked for a more supportive, caring, and knowledgable group of people to be working alongside for the majority of my undergraduate experience. My utmost gratitude and respect are dedicated to my research advisor at Juniata College because she recognized the potential in me that I had yet to realize myself. This confidence and validation from my mentor were instrumental in me gaining the confidence and voice to finding my passion here at Juniata. Her willingness to take me under her wing and introduce me to a breadth of fields from bioinformatics to environmental engineering was truly a life-changing experience that made me realize the silver lining where my academic and research interests are aligned. In terms of my academic experience at Juniata College, I had the unique opportunity to design my undergraduate curriculum and major in close collaboration with my two advisors. In my case, I designed a major that included environmental science and biology, while completing a minor in business management. Although the courses were rigorous throughout my time at Juniata College, the curriculum here definitely prepared me for my graduate studies at Yale. Beyond my personal research and academic experiences, Juniata College is a unique gem of an institution where people make lasting connections whether it be with classmates or professors. The learning atmosphere that Juniata College upholds is welcoming and collaborative by nature across different departments. With a smaller class size in comparison to larger schools, students at Juniata College are able to learn in an environment where their professor and other resources are easily accessible. A unique characteristic of the small liberal arts community of Juniata College is that one can leave their belongings in the mess hall or in an open space, and no one will steal another's belongings. A final note on Juniata College's community are the numerous campus-wide traditions that continue to take place every year since its founding in 1876 (i.e. Mountain day, lobster fest, pig roast). This strong sense of history and tradition that Juniata's community upholds is another interesting aspect that brings current and past students together."

"Juniata College is a very intimate setting. I found the professors to be fully invested in the success of their students. Often times professors will go above and beyond to make sure their students succeed. Juniata is located in a very rural area. There is not much to do outside of campus or in town. Juniata is known for their highly ranked science programs."

Disgruntled at Juniata - 2/22/2018
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012
"The profs are under educated - masters degrees or doctorate in non-business field. Degrees in English, higher ed, and economics. Very sad. Juniata is like advanced high school. Hated it. They get students to play a lot and cook food during class time. They have undeserved egos, especially W. who you should steer clear of. She's awful; Downright not suited for academe. B. is a left over HS cheerleader who treated us like high schoolers. Going to a state school after Juniata opened my eyes to professors who are up to date and rigorous. Juniata was not the place for me. I am sorry I went there. Waste of time and money. As I reflect back I can only say I should have gone elsewhere. A junior college would have been comparable and a lot cheaper!"

"I'd like to start by saying Juniata College was not my first choice of schools; however, if I had to choose all over again, I wouldn't think twice about any other schools. The professors are amazing, the campus is beautiful, the courses are interesting and challenging, and the friends I made will be lifelong."

Degree: Conflict Resolution
Graduation Year: 2013
"The Peace and Conflict program at Juniata College is a unique program that allows students to investigate topics related to politics, economics, sociology, mediation, and history to understand why conflicts happen and how we can try to resolve or prevent them. I was very happy with the small size of the program as it ensured I got personal attention and mentorship from my professors. I would advise this program to anyone interested in working in development, government or a genuine interest in making the world a better place."

"Wonderful college that allows you to create your own major, while building meaningful relationship with teachers and students. The campus has a lot of growing to do in terms of diversity however I feel that the staff and students within the last couple years are working hard to help and they are improving."
