Thank You Letters

Program of Emphasis: Chemistry

Hometown: Huntingdon Valley, PA

High School: Upper Moreland High School

Why I chose to attend Juniata: The deciding factor that made me choose Juniata was that it is affordable. I will be honest, at first I didn't think this was a special place. Though after making it to almost the end of my first semester I can safely say I was dead wrong. Though it can be chilly out here, the people are warm. The staff won't just talk to you, they will listen to you. This school is truly wonderful.

Varsity Sports: Juniata Cross Country Runner

Most Interesting Class: I often find that the more difficult a class is, the more interested I tend to be in that class. Organic chemistry is no exception. When I first took AP Chemistry, I always felt as though something was missing. There were shortcuts in the information that we learned, but nobody ever explained how these shortcuts came to be or how we know about them. Organic chemistry filled in some of those missing pieces and expanded on them.

Favorite Faculty Member: When I first entered Juniata I was exploratory. Though his class changed that to Chemistry. He teaches Organic Chemistry and the way he presents the information is clear and reliable. Everything from the diagrams he draws to the occasional joke he makes keeps my attention focused. He is Professor Unger.
