Heads or Tails? Did I Let a Coin Make My College Decision for Me?

Jules Slater
Jules Slater ’21, Advocacy Communication POE, Future Mayor of Picklesburgh

As a Juniata campus tour guide, I’ve often been asked to reflect on my own admissions process.

“What made Juniata stand out?”
“What made me choose Juniata?”

I’ve been indecisive my whole life. Questions like “What should we have for dinner tonight?” always stressed me out. It’s not that I think questions like this are particularly difficult to answer, but without enough information to make a distinct pro/con list—or worse, when the pros and cons are evenly balanced—I’d rather not make the final decision.

From Portland to Huntingdon: Why our small town beats the hustle and bustle

2,684 miles away from here, tucked deep into the heart of the Pacific Northwest lies the incredible city of Portland, Oregon. Home to delicious food, incredible opportunity, and breathtaking views, it can be hard to think a city girl like me ended up finding her home in a small town like Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. But I did, and I could not be happier.

The Muleady Musings – Law ‘N Order ‘N More

When in the power of the bored, time can be dangerous. I spent the last three weeks visiting every single lawn on Juniata’s campus (as well as a few in the neighborhood) and ranked them on a score from one to 100. The video that was put out on YouTube and IGTV, was but a mere summary yet entertaining dose of silliness. On my own personal Instagram @danyell_00, I plan on releasing the bloopers for that video as I managed to cut out over two hours of me rambling in front of a green screen and some bits were just too good to not to show.

However, today I bring to you the true culmination of my bizarre gardening analysis. Here is a spreadsheet of 259-ish lawns with their pros and cons, along with my ranking out of a score of 100. If you have any opinions that differ with mine, I hope know that this uneditable spreadsheet will forever hold a wrong opinion that will linger in your subconscious for days.

Well, I’ll let you explore for yourselves. If you really don’t have time, I’d suggest reading only the colored ones but I promise you that some of the best commentaries are the special ones hidden in the rows and rows of endless words. Ciao!

Law N Order with Daniel Muleady (Rating Juniata’s 259 Lawns) | Student Vlog | Juniata College

Meet our 4th and final vlogger, Daniel Muleady ’22! In his first vlog, Daniel takes you on a critical yet emotional dive into some of Juniata’s most revered lawns and grass patches. Lawns, the groundwork of suburbia, are often taken for granted. Today, we learn what makes and breaks our fertilized friends. When Daniel approached the vlogger crew with his idea for his first vlog, we expected humor. But what we didn’t realize is that there’s a reason he’s attached to the lawns at Juniata. Are you curious too? Watch through to the end to find out why he decided to rate all 259 lawns at Juniata.

Summer Special With Brohan – An Insider Review

It’s finally here! The finale of the “Summer Special” vlogs has arrived just in time for the start of September, capping off what has been a unique series of student-made videos. Throughout the quarantine months, we have been taken on expeditions to and from some of Huntingdon’s finest spots and, every other week, we see the quiet college town through the eyes of Rohan Bandekar, or “Brohan,” and his interactions with the various personalities in the Juniata College community.

This installment sees part two of Rob Yelnosky’s tour of Huntingdon and the utterly thrilling conclusion of the OIP and All-American dilemma that fans were left with at the close of Episode 5. While everyone has their own favorite Italian eatery, Rob boldly declared that OIP was his one true creator of savory wheat-based products. Although he was remiss to mention which OIP was the best pizza place, devoted fans of the show were very understanding that the choice would be impossible to make since no one has actually been to the establishment in Mount Union. Despite the absent holistic view of Mid-Pennsylvania Pizza chains, Episode 6 proved to have much more in store regarding locations and beautiful sights. However, I am not here to summarize the episode for you…
