challenged to think encouraged to evolve empowered to act

Juniata College students are

challenged to think,

encouraged to evolve, and empowered to act in a global world.


o matter what their career field and passions in life, our graduates

are citizens of consequence who understand the world in which they act. They frequently tell us the secret to their success: they were empowered to think about who they are at Juniata, and their journeys began in campus classrooms and through the relationships they formed here, where they were encouraged to make sense of the contradictions in life. Studying the liberal arts and sciences means exploring a broad range of subjects from natural and social sciences to humanities, arts, and international studies. It’s also about specifics— engaging deeply with a subject, or several, that inspire you. It sounds counterintuitive, but we believe in the power of opposites. think 1

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE Intimate classes, infinite connections At Juniata, your classes will feel

connected—thanks largely to the relationships you will have with peers and faculty. Here, you’ll find both a home and community completely committed to your personal and intellectual development. At Juniata, students build their résumés inside the classroom thanks to

discussion-based classes and projects that provide experience in career-related tasks. In our Innovations for Industry course, students work on information technology projects for real-world clients. Students learn group dynamics by taking a wilderness hike starting at unknown-tothem coordinates in the Behavioral Analysis of Organizations class. Environmental science and biology students can take courses and even live for a semester at the Raystown Field Station, where they work with water samples and animals in their natural setting. Some courses integrate service-learning, meaning that students volunteer, gaining perspective and leadership skills. Additionally, you’ll be guided by visiting experts: Glaeser Executives-In-Residence in the business department, actors who’ve just stepped off the stage in the theatre department, and visiting language instructors in world languages and cultures, among others.

students can complete capstone experiences— independent projects, in consultation with faculty, that bring together the majority of one’s Juniata education in a significant research or creative experience—in any field. After gaining hands-on experience as undergraduates, our students land jobs across various sectors, often with counseling from Juniata’s Career Services Office, which hosts Pennsylvania’s largest college Career

Fair, featuring more than 100 employers, including Fortune 500 companies. such as Aflac, DaVita, and Enterprise.

Juniata alumni also attend the Career Fair, to represent employers or recruit for their own businesses. They’re instrumental in connecting students with internships and are so

committed to supporting current students that they have created an endowment to support students interning in metropolitan areas. Small classes and a large network mean you are a handshake, a conversation, a project, or a visit away, at all times, from a network of people committed to Juniata, and to your long-term success.

INTERNSHIPS Every morning, Juniata students wake up and head off to hands-on experiences across the U.S. and around the world. In the past few years, students from the College have interned and researched in Orizaba, Mexico; London, England; Trnava, Slovakia; and The Gambia. Here’s a look at a sampling.

STUDY ABROAD Rural setting, global community Nestled in the leafy rolling mountains of central Pennsylvania, Juniata is located in a charming small town where students and faculty enjoy a tight-knit community full of academic and social opportunities as well as scenic

surroundings that provide relief from the pressure of spirited discussions, engaging writing assignments, and final exams. But the Juniata community isn’t all about the scenery. Students come to Juniata because it is a serene location where you

can focus unequivocally on your educational goals. And that includes a world of knowledge

you’ll read about in books and also find all around you. On Juniata’s campus, you’ll interact with classmates from

34 countries and 39 states, many of whom have returned from study abroad locations on six continents.

TRADITIONS Tried and true, bold and new Visit our campus and you’ll notice that people wave and smile as you pass them. Traditions are a central reason for this cheer. Your very first weekend

at Juniata features Lobsterfest, a crustacean-themed picnic (with other foods, for the shellfish-averse) where all College clubs set up recruiting booths. It is the first of an annual string of traditions that encourage you to Mountain Day

social scene includes everyone,

whether you’re signing up for an event with a friend or running alongside a

stranger clad in a superhero costume. The running is a part of Storming

the Arch. Every fall, challenge-hungry freshmen charge toward the iconic archway of the oldest dorm on campus. Run fast. If you break through, you’ll earn the best room on campus and widespread adoration. But, storming isn’t just about the glory of breaking through a crowd of rugby players (no one has ever made it). It’s about freshmen bonding with upperclass students. Whether you storm or not, you’ll soon join in a common campus conversation—guessing when Mountain

Day will occur. No one knows

in advance when it will be, so the suspense is intense. Fortunately, the day itself is about relaxing as a community. Classes

are canceled and students spend the day at nearby Raystown Lake where

they walk, picnic, and vie in a tug-of-war competition versus faculty.

CAMPUS LIFE Study hard, play hard Academics at Juniata are characterized by challenge. Professors will push you to learn by assigning projects that will stretch you intellectually. Your peers will study by your side, even late into the night. Fortunately, we’re not only good at working hard—we also play hard. The same professors who spend hours advising you will also participate in campus traditions and attend your club events. At Juniata, campus

life is driven by students, mostly through

their participation in clubs. More than 100 student organizations run the gamut from academic honor societies and club sports to community service, diversity and advocacy, and outdoor exploration groups. And, as with the Program of Emphasis, if you can’t find the club you’re looking for, you can create your own. In some of Juniata’s student organizations, students come together to enjoy the beauty

of our natural surroundings. In others, they

completely geek out—whether they’re tossing quaffles at goal posts while

playing Quidditch on the Quad or enjoying the neon glow of an evening

light saber battle. Some clubs inspire students to pursue alternative

spring breaks where they serve others abroad and support causes

in a collective way, achieving more than they could have individually accomplished, while making lifelong connections. So, plan ahead. Fuel yourself with caffeine for studying late into the nights. Don’t forget to pack sweatbands for Ultimate

Frisbee competitions (which occur nearly continuously on the Quad) or disc golf. Throw in your hiking pack and gear for Man v. Wild-themed outdoor retreats. Bring along old jeans to throw ceramic pieces with Mudjunkies, a blanket for movies on

the lawn, and a tool belt for local Habitat

for Humanity builds.

Most of all, you’ll need a sense of exploration. You’ll

think in new

ways in your courses, but also through clubs and organizations where you will try new experiences and, as a result, evolve to find new passions. At Juniata, you’ll be challenged to act in a variety of

scenarios—not just classes—with new people, original ideas, and inspiring insights that will help you live a fulfilling life. 16 evolve

HUNTINGDON Quaint town, majestic surroundings Juniata is located in Huntingdon, Pa., a town of 9,000 residents that provides many amenities that college students love— from cafés with locally-roasted coffee to a movie theatre with a student-designated night, an Art Space where students and alumni exhibit their work, and an upscale restaurant and martini bar. Our students know that studying

in a small

town has some distinct benefits beyond its quaint

friendliness. Many professionals in Huntingdon are adept at networking and, like professors at the College, work across different fields to help their organizations succeed. Our students intern at Huntingdon’s J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital, Mutual Benefit Insurance Group, alumni-owned businesses, and smaller organizations like county government offices or the local United Way. These local

opportunities highlight several growing fields—from rural healthcare to nonprofit leadership. Chemistry and art students work

with our local General Electric branch to use advanced

instrumentation to authenticate items from the Juniata College Museum of Art collection.

Community members, professionals, and students also come to Huntingdon to enjoy its majestic surroundings. From other states and countries, people travel to bike on the Allegrippis Trails, hike The Thousand Steps, and watch the fog burn off Pennsylvania’s largest inland lake in the early morning. Here, kayaks,
