“It’s not about what kitchens you cook in, it’s about which kitchens you choose.”

1. Tussey and Terrace (TNT)

Ladies and gentlemen, the TNT kitchen.

Best dorm kitchen on campus. I say this because if I need some sort of pot or pan, the TNT kitchen will usually have it. Has an extensive spice collection on the side as well. Out of all of the freshman dorms, it’s not even a competition for who has the best kitchen (Lesher would be 2nd).

“The Moove-Out Process”

It can be as pretty or as not pretty as you plan it to be.

If you can line up your summer storage options, get rides to airports, and clean your room in time, you won’t have to deal with the giant ball of stress that swells up inside one of your ear canals in the latter part of the semester.

Hypothetically, let’s say you don’t do that. Let’s say you’re me. Entering my senior year, I don’t think I’ve really nailed the whole “move-out process thing” that everyone seemingly has figured out. Freshman year. Sophomore year. Junior year. Three strikes. But in this hellish ballgame, there are actually four strikes required to retire the batter so I’m ready to be locked in for senior year move out.

Here is a three-step process that covers about 89% of the problem areas of move-out:

The editing crew ended up spending a lot of nights grinding out the rest of the project to make sure that it could be completed in time for the Creators Club film night (if you want to watch the final product along with the many other great films that were premiered at this incredible event, you can watch the lineup here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMRXshcDiwQ).

Huntingdon “Flavor Town” Part 2 – Muleady Musings

Juniatians and People of Huntingdon,

As mentioned in the first part of this series, I’m trying to share (and gather) alternate eating options to Baker Refectory. There are many options that I have yet to provide – all unhealthy – but hopefully in the coming weeks, I might have some “community recipes” to share with everyone from your suggestions.

But for now, let’s get started where we left off. We last talked about Domino’s and Sheetz. Duh. No brainer. But let’s get into the more niche options.

Jumbo China Buffet – $$

Awesome Kung Pao Chicken. Terrible Pork Loin fried rice. I’m not sure how this happened but it has. Always get the Kung Pao with the white rice (why would you turn down free rice). It also heats up nicely.

Why I chose Juniata

Tessa Senel ’21, Professional Writing POE

Growing up in New Jersey, I had never heard of Juniata before. While I was in high school, students were always talking about big state schools and other public universities—but small schools were never mentioned. It wasn’t until my high school hosted a “college and career fair” back in 2015, that Juniata College became a name that I would never forget.

As I was walking around my high school’s “college and career fair” I noticed that the tables with Admissions Counselors from state schools were overcrowded with students trying to talk to them. As I was walking, I noticed one table that had nobody standing around it—and that table had a banner hanging from it that read, “Juniata College.” I decided to give this school a try. As I approached, the Admissions Counselor from Juniata greeted me with the biggest smile that I had seen that day and they enthusiastically welcomed me to their table. They told me about Juniata’s “Program of Emphasis (POE)” system, which allows you to individualize your degree and make it your own. Then, the Admissions Counselor told me about Juniata’s immersive learning environment. Immediately I was awestruck by Juniata—the Admissions Counselor was enthusiastically helping me, the curriculum seemed personal, and the community appeared to be extremely friendly.
