- Recruit prospective students who would be a good fit for Juniata and submit a Gold Card
- Stop into your local high school to drop off an information packet and introduce Juniata to the guidance counselor - contact us with the name of the high school(s) you will visit and we will send packets to you
- Encourage students to visit campus and/or accompany them on their visit
- Represent Juniata or accompany a Counselor at a College Fair. Check out College Fair opportunities in your area (map is updated each fall).
- Mingle at an off-campus interview session
- Attend a reception for local prospective and/or accepted students in your area

You will find that helping to shape the future of Juniata is very rewarding. Also, it has been shown that students guided through this process with a personal connection are more likely to apply to, and ultimately attend Juniata. These activities matter for Juniata. Below are some appreciative students who were introduced to Juniata thanks to a GOLD Card submitted by a JAA volunteer!
