Penn State Abington Reviews
Hello! I will be a Freshman at Penn State Abington this year. This campus is beautiful and the people working there are all extremely nice and helpful. They have plenty of diversity as people from all over the world are attending this school with their program for international students. The housing is very nice, as you have a full kitchen, living room, wifi, heating, and other amenities at your disposal. However, you must by your own groceries and cook for yourself because they do not offer meal plans at this campus. This would be my only complaint. Hope I helped!
Penn State Abington is a great college for students that want to save money. It is an alternative of Penn State Main Campus, whether you spend all 4 years or do 2 years and transfer, it's up to you! I feel safe and relaxed on campus. BUT with 3 years of experience they do need to hire better Professors in the IT department.
I spent part of my first semester here and I wish I could take it back and just have started somewhere else. If you live at Lionsgate and have friends going in you'll probably have a good time, otherwise you probably won't. It's racially diverse, sure, but most people either travel in cliques or look like they're rushing to get out. If you have to stay over lunch there really aren't many edible options on campus, but you can drive and find some over in Jenkintown. The teachers I had were really nice and personable, but that was overshadowed by academics that were just too simple. The parking lots are awful. And what the hell is up with that awful smelling elevator in the Woodland building? It smells like sticking your face in a gym locker. Anyway, unless you and your best friend just put a deposit down on a Lionsgate apartment or you're perfectly fine with all of the above, just go to Bucks or MontCo, at least you'll save your money.
