New Student Transitions & Orientation

As a new Juniatian, there are a series of activities and events throughout the coming months to help you prepare for your time as a Juniata Eagle: 

  • Summer Orientation is a required one-day experience on the Juniata campus where you will receive vital information on how to be a successful student inside and outside of the classroom. You will meet with fellow students, tour sample residence halls rooms, and meet with an academic advisor to complete your first semester schedule. We ask for parents and families to attend our Summer Orientation programming. 
  • Inbound is a strongly encouraged retreat-based experience in which you will join a cohort of other Juniatians to get to know each other and the Juniata and surrounding communities. 
  • Fall Orientation is a required experience for new students where you will participate in final orienting activities and residential students will get settled into your new home.
