Residential Hall Staff
Each residence hall and apartment area has student and professional staff members who are available to provide information, offer help and support, plan social and educational activities, and address concerns. A Resident Assistant (RA) will be living on your floor. They are peer advisors that will help you during your time at Juniata. RAs are supervised by a live-in Resident Director (RD). The Resident Director advises the hall staff, coordinates hall programs, and works with the judicial system. RDs can answer most of your questions, and when they cannot, they know where to find them.
Meals are provided through the college dining service. All first semester residential students are assigned to Plan 1 for their first year at Juniata. All returning students who live in traditional resident halls are assigned Meal Plan 2, returning students living in houses and apartments are assigned Meal Plan 5. You can view your meal plan at www.juniata.edu/services/dining/mealplan. Changes can only be made though the drop/add period of each semester. Declining Cash Balance (DCB) can be added through the Bursar's Office at any time during the semester and can be used in any of the Sodexo facilities. DCB carries over from fall to spring semesters but not from one academic year to the next. Money from DCB may be used to pay for guest meals. More information is available on the Dining Services page.
Security Personnel are on the job 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The staff consists of six full-time officers, one full-time office support staff member, and six part-time officers. The officers have a variety of training and experience, ranging from criminal investigation procedures to self defense techniques. They have an excellent working relationship with local and state police.
Downtown Huntingdon has an AMTRAK station, making it easy to get where you want to go. If you prefer flying, the college provides transportation to and from the State College Airport at the beginning and end of each semester. If you would like to go mid-semester, the State College Airport and the Altoona Airport are both within an hour's drive.
