Wait, where did this year go? Like, actually. I can’t find it. I think I left it in 2019 somewhere. I feel like I just started reading applications a week ago, and now it’s half way through April. Many of you have already found your future home at Juniata, some of you are still deciding (Don’t worry, we’re still here!). You all have one thing in common. You all applied to Juniata. Did your journey look something like this?

When you attend one of Juniata’s virtual visits:
When you decide to apply and discover that Juniata doesn’t have an application fee, they’re test optional, AND they don’t require a supplement:

When your admission counselor calls you again just to see how you’re doing:

I had so much fun picking these out. The pronunciation one still cracks me up. So, was it accurate? I hope so. If you’re still deciding on which college to go to, Juniata might be the place for you. Whenever you’re ready you can submit your deposit here.
As always, it’s a great day to be an Eagle! Wings up y’all!
