Juniata enjoys a host of student organizations that facilitate global community-building activities. Students may choose to live in the Global Village, which brings together diverse students with interest in world issues into a common residence. The "Club International" and "United Cultures of Juniata" are organizations open to all Juniata students and provide a forum for exchanging ideas, and for planning and participating in activities. French, German, and Spanish Clubs sponsor field trips, films and speakers and join faculty in hosting language tables in the college dining hall. The "Model United Nations Club" sponsors international negotiation simulations and field trips for students interested in foreign policy and world affairs. The Iota Chapter of "Sigma Iota Rho", a national honor society "to promote and reward scholarship and service among students and practitioners of international studies and global relations and to foster integrity and creative performance in the conduct of global affairs," honors successful students in international studies. Other clubs like the Muslim Students Association, Chinese Club, and Slavic Club grow out of student interest in world cultures, and are instrumental in the success of such activities as the Eid (Middle Eastern) Dinner, Chinese New Year dinner, film series, lectures and parties and dances.
