May Day Brunch

Established: 1916

On the morning of Reading Day in the Spring Semester, JAB holds a brunch to recognize outstanding student leaders from each class and to celebrate their contributions to the Juniata College community. Additionally, there are presentations made to Students of the Year, Outstanding Faculty, Outstanding Staff, Unsung Heroes, and Outstanding Registered Student Organizations. All nominations are made by fellow students, faculty, and staff.

History

In 1916, May Day celebrated women by female students wearing flowing white dresses dancing around the May Pole. In the 1970s, May Day revolutionized to include a formal breakfast event which recognized women. By 2002, May Day evolved again, to include men and recognize all our student leaders and thank them for their services and contributions to Juniata College. In 2006, JAB added awards to recognize Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), as well as, individuals.

Awards

Two students from each class that demonstrate outstanding co-curricular involvement, leadership, and service to the Juniata College community will be recognized.

Often some members of student organizations make special contributions, but their work goes unnoticed by many of their peers.
