Thank You Letters

Kiernan Keating

Program of Emphasis: Information Technology

Hometown: Nanty Glo, PA

High School: Blacklick Valley High School

Why I chose to attend Juniata: Juniata College was one of my primary choices right from the get-go. Aside from the fact that the campus is absolutely stunning, I also enjoyed the fact that it was relatively small, and gave each person the chance to get to know every other person on campus and to become great friends. I do have relatives that live in Huntingdon as wel,l and it gives me the opportunity to spend more time with my family.

Clubs and Organizations: Ultimate Frisbee Club- Athlete.

Most Interesting Class: I realize that I have not yet completed a full semester, but I have taken a class that is required in order for me to finish my major that is somewhat difficult, but at the same time, I find it very enjoyable. This class is my Computer Science 1 class. Unfortunately for me, I was unable to take any programming classes while I was in High School. But fortunately for me, I was able to pick it up relatively quickly thanks to a great professor. I have already learned so much in this class, but I still have much to learn.

Favorite Faculty Member: My Computer Science professor and my main academic advisor, Professor John Wright, has had a huge influence on my time so far at Juniata. Aside from the fact that he is an extraordinarily personable human-being, he is also very kind and understanding when it comes to classwork, and when a student has trouble in class. His office door is almost always open, whether you are stuck on a program, or you just want to stop in and say hi.
