Six Questions for Sam
What can you do with a degree from Juniata? Well, a lot! In the last decade, Juniata graduates have earned 20 Fulbright Fellowships and countless other prestigious honors, including awards from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, Amgen, and many more.
Within six months of graduation, 90 percent of our graduates are employed or attending graduate school. How do our students accomplish so much and, in the process, learn to design lives of meaning and happiness? Let us count the ways.
- Juniata students support one another. They turn out to each other’s games, concerts, and events. On Juniata’s campus, our strong, supportive community and its collaborative nature trumps competitiveness. This doesn’t mean that our students don’t have a winning spirit or a drive to succeed. But Juniatians aren’t willing to step on or over others (or you) to meet their goals.
- Our clubs and organizations aren’t just social. As you join in the fun, the traditions, and, at times, the sheer silliness that brings people together and balances the serious work of study, you’ll begin to discover possibilities, friendships, and unexpected outcomes. At Juniata, what happens outside of the classroom enriches your education. Learning is learning. Whether you are joining student organizations because of shared interests (like politics or languages) or hobbies (like knitting, Quidditch, or stargazing), everything you do at Juniata ultimately helps shape the authentic you.
- At Juniata, students are involved in many levels of institutional decision-making. At Juniata, you’ll be involved in the decision-making process. Whether you are working in a campus office or participating on college committees (our students even sit on our Board of Trustees), you’ll be gaining networking, problem solving, and critical communication skills.
