Huntingdon, PA - it's more than Juniata! And it's officially "The Coolest Small Town in PA!"
Have you been to campus lately? Have you explored Huntingdon? There are many new restaurants and shops in our college town, and knowing a bit about them will enable you to give prospective students and parents an idea of places to go when they're visiting campus or returning for Homecoming / Family Weekend.
Sheetz and OIP are still favorites. But now, there are many more options. Take a look at some of these new places - please let me know if you've discovered others, and I'll add them to the list!
