Since it is a small school, you really get to know your professors. There are lots of fun events on campus on the weekends and there are also many enjoyable traditions like Mountain Day where classes are randomly canceled and the students are brought to the lake and tenting where you sleep in a tent for a week in order to earn your spot to buy tickets for madrigal.
As a vegetarian, sometimes there aren't many options in the dining hall that are appealing to me.
Juniata is amazing when talking about academics, a small school atmosphere, and making close friends. If you are looking for a school with amazing social life experiences such as parties, going to restaurants, and exploring downtown, Juniata won't be for you. This is a small academic college in a very rural area. However, the campus life, traditions, and events more than make up for the lack of available "city life".
I did not like their response to covid and unvaccinated individuals. My unvaccinated friends were treated like second-class citizens being forced to test every week and charged $300 for covid mitigation. The school is nice when you make friends, but it is a liberal arts school so there isn't much openness for differences in opinion.
Juniata College was a risk for me as an out-of-state student. It was risky to go so far from home as an eighteen-year-old, but I would do it all over again. The experiences I have had at Juniata have changed and helped me for the better.
The food sometimes sucks. Some professors aren't the best, but you get that anywhere you go. It's expensive for a college, which is also a drawback.
