All of these fun activities contribute to the senior experience. Among the most exciting events of senior year is choosing a college to spend the next four years. Freshmen relate why they chose Juniata:

Anthony Downey, '17, Palmyra, N.J.
"I came to Juniata so I could continue to play football, just like I did in high school. The academics are a plus too."
