Penn State Abington is a wonderful school if you want to attend for two years then transfer to main campus. It's a relatively small campus, has decent facilities (although there are buildings/classrooms that haven't been updated in decades) and personally I have had alright interactions with some teachers/staff.

If you are going to attend PSU Abington, do NOT go for IST. Please, heed my warning. The IST department at Abington are garbage. Complete trash. The advisors are completely incompetent, they're just teachers that are very bad at giving any sort of advice. They're not even remotely trained for an advising role. The IST curriculum is also not very good. It's all over the place, and quite confusing at times. The head of the IST department is one of the rudest, worst people you will ever interact with. Go figure, he's also the most competent, which doesn't tell you very much.

Penn State Abington has a cool campus, and it's very affordable. But do NOT go for IST. Trust me.

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 very lovely campus. There are adequate facilities. The teachers are extremely prepared for the classroom. The preparation and skills of my teachers are excellent, well organized that the student are motivated to assist and learn.Organised notebook with required paperwork are easy to find. The teacher's supervisors are easy to talk to and listens to the concerns that were expressed about the teacher. There is a good communication between the student and teacher. The student are more likely to strive and reach their full potential because the learning environment meet their individual needs.
