Huntingdon, a peaceful small town, has a few stores downtown, but not much else for students to spend a whole lot of time off-campus. Many students spend their spare time on campus, but there are still a fair amount of people that has vehicles and other transportation here in Juniata for various purposes. Let’s see what kinds of transportation Juniatians prefer.
Miranda Martz ’13, Fallentimber Pa.: “I have a Pontiac Grand Am car here in Juniata, and I mostly use it to go home and go to Walmart. Sometimes I use it to drive my international roommate around since she does have a car here in the U.S.”
Stephanie Marci ’12 Fitchburg Mass.: “I have a bike here, but I don’t use it really often. Sometimes I use it to go to Weis to get groceries.”
Jennifer Rodland ’12, Tobyhanna Pa.: “I have a SUV, and I use it to drive home and to Walmart. Also I drive up to the field station to see my friends and hang out with them.”
Christina Gongaware ’11, North Huntingdon Pa.: “The transportation I have is a Chrysler Sebring. I usually use it to drive to the grocery store or as transportation for home.”
Sophia Feng ’11, International Student from China: “My friendship family lent me a bike, and I use it to go to Weis for groceries, and sometimes Sheetz too. When it’s warm my friends and I would ride our bikes to downtown Huntingdon and go to some of the shops there.”
