Our admissions team is excited to welcome you to our campus, and to do so in a way that will be safe for you and your family, as well as the college and Huntingdon communities. We will be offering a limited number of daily campus visits to include a 55-minute tour of campus and optional 55-minute meeting with an admission counselor. Following are several important policies and protocols outlining what to expect when making a campus visit. Please return to this page for updates.

7/7/21 Update: Juniata is excited to continue welcoming prospective students to register for a socially distant on-campus visit experience.

Our on-campus visit policies and screenings apply and are subject to change as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 landscape. We ask that families are remain diligent while self-monitoring and screening prior to arriving on campus. Additional details related to your visit experiences will be provided in your confirmation and reminder emails following your registration.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED

All visitors must register in advance. Doing so will assure that we are able to show you around our campus in the safest way possible. We are unable to accommodate unregistered visitors.

SCREENING QUESTIONS

Upon registering and prior to traveling to campus, all guests will be asked to submit a pre-screening questionnaire. You will be asked these questions again upon arrival and only be allowed to spend time on campus if you answer “No” to all questions.

  1. Do you have a fever 100.4 or greater? If yes, please contact a medical provider for further evaluation. Your visit to campus will have to be delayed until you have been symptom free for 24 hours (and 10 days since the onset of symptoms).
  2. Are you experiencing any respiratory symptoms, such as cough or shortness of breath? If yes, please contact a medical provider for further evaluation. Your visit to campus will have to be delayed until you have been symptom free for 24 hours (and 10 days since the onset of symptoms).
  3. Are you experiencing other symptoms of COVID-19, such as chills (with or without shaking), muscle pain, headache, sore throat, congestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or a new loss of taste or smell? If yes, please contact a medical provider for further evaluation. Your visit to campus will have to be delayed until you have been symptom free for 24 hours (and 10 days since the onset of symptoms).
  4. In the past 2 weeks, have you had contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, or have you been caring for someone who is ill with symptoms consistent with COVID-19? If yes, please contact a medical provider for further evaluation, particularly if you develop symptoms. Follow the CDC recommendations for quarantine. Do not come to campus until your quarantine is complete and you remain symptom free.

If you answer “No” to all of these questions, we look forward to welcoming you to campus. Please continue to practice good hygiene measures, such as frequent hand washing, avoiding touching your face, and covering your coughs and sneezes. Please practice social distancing whenever possible in shared spaces on campus and/or within six feet of others. Please continue to monitor your health and stay home if you develop any symptoms consistent with COVID-19.

UPON ARRIVAL

Upon registration, you will receive a visit confirmation email confirming the details of your visit. You will also receive a 48-hour reminder email including a link to our required 24-hour pre-screening questionnaire to be submitted prior to your arrival. To allow for appropriate social distancing and preparation, please plan to arrive as close to your scheduled visit time. Prior to entering the office, all guests will call our Campus Visit Assistant at 814-641-3759 to announce their arrival and confirm their screening questionnaire responses.

FACE COVERINGS

As of June 28, 2021, The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) announced that the order requiring universal face coverings has been lifted statewide.  To promote and ensure the continued health and safety of our campus community members, and to visitors of Juniata College.

All unvaccinated guests are asked to please wear face masks and continue for the duration of their appointment while inside campus buildings. Face masks may be taken off while outside of campus buildings.

All fully vaccinated guests (last dose more than 14 days prior to your visit) will not be required to wear a mask, indoors or outdoors, while on campus (if they are comfortable).

FRESH AIR & ATTIRE

Expect that at least half of your time on our campus will be spent outdoors on tour. Please dress accordingly and bring your own water bottle (which can be filled at our filtered hydration station). We look forward to hosting campus visits and, for those who prefer to learn about the college online, will continue to provide numerous options for virtual visits as well.
