Dear Alfie – Answering all your Juniata questions – Round 2!

Caroline Benfer ’21

Hi Future Eagles!

Welcome to the Dear Alfie blog! For those not familiar, Dear Alfie is an opportunity for prospective students to ask a current Juniata student questions about life here. Consider it a way to get Juniata info straight from the source.

My name is Caroline, I’m a rising senior at Juniata and my POE is environmental science. I have several jobs in the admissions offices, and I love just about any outdoor activities with hiking, camping, kayaking and cycling being my favorites. I’m also an avid gardener, music enthusiast and novice baker. Due to quarantine, I’ve recently discovered my wine making abilities and I have acquired two fluffy friends, khaki campbell ducklings Flora and Fauna.

Hello future Juniatians!

Welcome to our first Dear Alfie post! For those not familiar, Dear Alfie is an opportunity for prospective students to ask a current Juniata student questions about life here. Consider it a way to get Juniata info straight from the source.

So, let’s get started:

Those my friends, are the sounds from under the sea.

During the fall, the scuba diving club provides an opportunity for students to get scuba diving certifications and it also helps offset the cost. In the spring, students can go on a spring break trip to go diving somewhere other than a lake or a quarry in Pennsylvania. I was not able to take advantage of getting scuba certified while on campus, but after getting certified during my study abroad experience in the Galapagos, I was able to join the trip this year!

Juniata’s mock trial team slays the competition

“Who is Juniata College?” This is a question asked often at mock trial tournaments that Juniata College mock trial team attends. The American Mock Trial Association’s representative said it best at this year’s regionals: “Juniata College is the team that’s shocking the mock trial community.” Juniata College’s team has only been a program for two years and is already nationally ranked and competes across the country.

Juniata’s mock trial team is ranked third in Pennsylvania and second among private colleges in Pennsylvania. They also hold the highest rank of any of their peers, including Bucknell, Elizabethtown, Franklin and Marshall, Susquehanna, Dickinson, and Allegheny College.

When I made the decision to continue my education at Juniata College, I also decided to end my career in sports. I had played sports since the fourth grade and continued to play soccer, softball, and basketball throughout my high school years.

I thought about taking up dance, as I had when I was younger, or finding a new passion. During my freshman year, I stayed true to this plan. I delved into my schoolwork and found some new hobbies. I took up some intramural sports.
