Parent's Council

The Juniata College Parents Program is designed to engage parents in the life of Juniata in a way that supports the needs of the parents and the needs of the College, while allowing students to retain their personal independence.

Together as partners, the Juniata community, you and, most importantly, your student can experience growth, success and new opportunities.
