Why I chose to attend Juniata: I chose to attend Juniata College for a combination of reasons. One of the most unique qualities of Juniata College was the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that I so easily found on campus among students and faculty. In addition, Junata College's esteemed reputation in offering opportunities to participate in research projects, internships, and study abroad programs far surpassed those of other colleges. It became clear that Juniata would offer me the kinds of classes that challenge and inspire intellectual thinking, memories and friendships that I could carry with me far beyond my years at Juniata, and a bright future.

Most Interesting Class: Even though I have not yet completed a full year here at Juniata College, of the classes that I have taken the one that I found most interesting was my biology lab. It may not have been a class with lectures or a text book, but the knowledge that I gained from hands on experience was both educational and fun. Whether I was going into a field and collecting data, or conducting agarose gel electrophoresis, in every lab class I was learning new things, applying myself to the experiments, and gaining new skills each day.
