Why can't I just register for courses over the phone or via the internet?
At Juniata, we believe there is enormous value in face to face communication. We know that goes against the grain of our high tech culture sometimes, but we still maintain our position. We fundamentally believe it will be a better experience for everyone, if you sit down with an academic advisor and chat about your courses and your interests and goals, etc. No technology can replace that interaction.
Will I spend a lot of time with my family at the Summer Orientation program?
No. We have a very rich and distinct program for both you and your family, but your paths won't cross much at all during the 24 hours you are here for orientation.
I've got questions about the health form, immunization records, meningitis vaccination, or other health-related questions. Who should I contact?
You may e-mail or call the Dean of Students Office or you may submit your question in the "ask a question" box above. You might also check out the Health and Wellness Center.
I plan to bring a computer with me to campus in the fall. What are the basic hardware and software requirements for my computer to operate well on the Juniata network?
Visit http://www.juniata.edu/services/cts/studenttech/ for more detailed information on buying software and hardware.
Your literature says that course registration is first-come, first-served and I'm planning to attend the final June Orientation session. Will I be closed-out of a course I want?
Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors have already registered for fall courses. First-year students are the last to register. Don't worry. You will definitely get all of the courses you NEED, although you may not get every single course you WANT. When you are an upper-class student, you'll enjoy the luxury of being closer to the front of the registration line.
Where should my family stay when we come to Orientation?
Students should plan to stay on campus in a residence hall. Parents and family members should make arrangements for local accommodations. Here are some suggested places to stay.
