Big Brothers Big Sisters with parachute

The Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) retreat teaches students the importance of civic responsibility and leadership through working with at-risk youth.  Each student with be one-on-one and mentoring a child to overcome the many challenges he or she may face while growing up. Students converse about child development, effects of socioeconomic status on our community, and the mission of BBBS of America. Possible activities students may do with his/her “littles” includes: playing games, creating crafts, going to an amusement park, and just getting to know one another! This is an excellent introduction to the BBBS Club on campus!  

Each retreat will also have the opportunity to mingle with other retreats and participate in larger group activities and programs.

 **Keep checking in for updates on the Big Brothers Big Sisters retreat throughout the spring as we move further along in the planning process.

Coming to a small town from another small town made for quite the easy transition these past two years. I've found that a lot of my time is spent playing sports and partaking in various recreational activities. Running and playing soccer are two of my absolute favorite things in the world. Although I am certainly "girly," the outdoors acts as no stranger to me; this in itself serves as a huge factor in why I love Juniata and it's culture so much.  Juniata is known for it's extraordinary traditions such as Mountain Day, Storming of the Arch, Madrigal and so many more. Equally, these events only make me feel so much more proud to be a part of the Juniata community.

POE: PreK-4 Education

I am half-Australian, with dual citizenship. I love music, and I play guitar and sing a bit. I love vintage movies, especially Westerns and Hitchcock. I am a Yankees fan to the grave. On campus, I am part of several clubs, including Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Juniata Instructors of the Future, to name a few.

The best thing about Juniata is the people. You will definitely meet some great friends and professors. My favorite Inbound memory was…well I have two: one was meeting one of my closest friends on campus, and the other was spending time with my Little Brother, who was quite chatty, but we had a ton of fun. The two best Juniata traditions are Mountain Day, and Lobster Fest.
