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.

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.
