What draws me most to PSU is the opportunities provided. Many clubs, sporting events and opportunities to volunteer. In addition the career counseling services is easily available. The college is known for its great alumni network of over 700,000. Finally, the ice cream is fantastic at the Creamery!
Penn State Abington is a really great, close knit community that has so much to offer. There are loads of clubs and extracurricular activities to take part in. Campus organizations such as Lion Ambassadors and SGA are extremely active on campus and are a great source for information or opportunity to get involved. The professors always make themselves available for their students and any need is met by the multitude of resources available throughout campus.
Good school for people wanting a smaller, close-knit community or using the small campus as a way to transition into a bigger school but don't want to go to community. Penn State Abington is a great starter school for those looking to moving on to bigger and better things, but often times those who attend for that purpose change their minds once they start attending and stay there all four years if they can! The campus is in a quaint little county with little crime at all, and police presecence is greta with the school thanks to the school's own police force as well as the local Abington police having a relationship with the school. Most things are within walking distance (or a short shuttle/bus ride away) from campus. The campus itself is far away enough from the main busy streets to maintain a sort of quiet oasis vibe, which is really beneficial for students. The tranquil atmosphere, though rowdy at times during major events (like any other school) helps students feel comfortable working on campus. Another bonus would be smaller class sizes, so that your professors can really get to know you and will therefore look out for you if you ever express you need their help. You get on their good side (like any other person) and they'll have your back. This has helped me tremendously through my first two semesters there, and helped me maintain a 3.93 GPA! If you're looking for somewhere to get somewhat of the college experience (and get the degree) but either want to start off small or don't like the idea of a huge campus at all, Penn State Abington may be the place for you.
Although this campus only offers 18 majors (and over 20 minors), Abington College is a good option for students who prefer a one-on-one treatment with faculty members. It's a great place for PSU students to really have a clear idea of the resources available to them, and to actually experience college in a more friendly and engaging way. Small campuses are great for people who like to get themselves "out there", and PS-Abington is no exception. Many leadership opportunities, active clubs (we even got our very own Feminist club!), are available to students. Most of us will only spend 2 years in this wonderful campus (due to PSU's 2+2 program), but the experience will be well treasured.

Listen past me. College is fun, you have a lot more freedom, and you will meet some new interesting people. But this just means you'll have more responsibility, you'll end up spending a lot of money on and off campus, also you'll need to make friends if you want to survive college. Work on all of your basic skills in writing, math, english, etc. And the most important advice would be to NEVER take a class with one of your good friends for fun. You'll either end up failing and damaging your GPA or waste your time in that class and not learn due to the fact that you will care for socializing more than the course itself
Before I came to this school I wish I had a car, because Penn State Abington does not have dorms so students have to commute back and forth to get to the campus. This is sometimes a problem for some students who may catch public transportation because public transportation is not always reliable and can cause some students to run late to class like myself.
Lack of parking spaces for commuting students
If you love to party, meet a lot of new people, and want a variety of sports to engage in, then this school is not for you. This school is a nice, small, friendly campus. It's basically a larger highschool.
Penn State Abington is a beautiful campus located in the suburbs of Philadelphia. It was the home of a prominent philanthropist.
Any kind of person can attend PennState Abington. It doesns't matter if your white, black, orange , or purple you will fit right in to the PennState family. PennState Abington also accommodates students with disabilities, so that shouldn't be a reason not to apply for Pennstate Abington.
That I go to penn state!! Can't wait to go up to main.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the fact that it is a commuter campus; it is a small campus with not much to do. While the most important aspect of going to school is for an education, it would be nice to be on a more fun and exciting campus with more things to do.
Penn State Abington is close to my home and convenient.
The thing I see students doing the most is getting together in the library or Lares building and having large study sessions. These sessions are anything but quiet and boring.
It's 20 min from my house, makes for easy commuting
I would say it's that most of the students there are only there because it's cheaper than going to main campus. I would say that is partially true, but most students move on to main campus eventually.
Is your dream college a place where theres always fun activies around, that have great sports team, that is a clean environment, that have small classes, where teachers and staffs are very helpful, were there learning center that helps you with struggling subject, where you be able to find everything at the library, where you can have unlimited computers and internet access, where they serve great food? Then Penn State Abington is the right place for you.
i have seen a few ignorant students but you always get that handful no matter where you go. For the most part, everyone is really nice.
Some can be very hard and some fairly easy depending. But that is why they give free tutoring!
Really nice, not a huge campus and the people and staff are all friendly. most importantly I'm finding that I'm getting a quality education.
