Juniata College hosted the Pennsylvania American Fisheries Society (AFS) Chapter’s 2020 Technical Meeting on February 6th and 7th. What is AFS you might be wondering? According to the website, it is “the world’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to strengthening the fisheries profession, advancing fisheries science, and conserving fisheries resources”. One of our professors at Juniata in the Environmental Science Department, Dr. George Merovich, is the President Elect for the PA AFS Chapter and helped plan this meeting. In addition, Dr. Merovich is the advisor for our student American Fisheries Society club on campus. This year I serve as treasurer for the club.

I can’t believe it’s already February.

Mr. Juniata: An Insider’s Perspective

Every year, starting all the way back in 1997, judges from throughout the school are randomly selected to evaluate the chosen male champions entertaining the Juniata population in a charity fund raiser and mock beauty pageant dubbed Mr. Juniata. Each class is represented by two contestants who are evaluated based on their exemplification of what I concluded are the principal qualities one must have in order to be awarded the prestigious title of “Mr. Juniata”:

Talent, Dress, and Schmooze.

To further my understanding of this innocuous JC ritual, I managed to infiltrate the pageant, enlisting as one of the champions for the junior class.

Julius Caesar at Juniata College

This semester I had the honor of performing in Juniata’s fall production of William Shakespeare’s, Julius Caesar. One of the things that I really enjoyed doing before coming to college was performing in my school’s shows, and when I heard that Juniata was going to be putting on Julius Caesar, I knew that it was something that I definitely wanted to be a part of.
