The school is not for everyone, but if you're looking for a home away from home and a quiet space, you've found the right place. Abington offers many opportunities, even though sometimes they're hard to make note or notice of. Not everything is said on the announcement sheet of every bathroom stall.
The majority of teachers here are so dedicated to being here and teaching you. They actually care about you and what grade you get. If you don't, it's usually all down to how you studied, did you put effort, did you care at all, and did you ask them for help? I've had many teachers stay after class just to tutor me in subjects I only had to take once but needed to pass. Occasionally, you'll find a minority of teachers that aren't helpful. If that's the case, drop them, and take the class with someone else. Don't waste your time or your money when you could be learning from the best

As a current student attending Penn State Abington, I can say that this school is extremely welcoming. Staff, faculty and the students here are kind and helpful. I couldn't have chosen a better university to attend. The campus is stunning and finding the location to the different buildings is easy with signs and directions to the building. The shuttle buses are so useful for students, I know from personal experience. There's so much more at Abington that I still have yet to discover.
