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!

I am almost finished with my first year here at Penn State Abington and I couldn't love it any better. I was accepted into Harvard, Yale, and Johns Hopkins, but I definitely made the right choice attending here. If you are a student considering applying, please do! It is Amazing!
One of the many things I like about Penn State Abington is the small, intimate campus. I also really enjoy the environment with the lake and the trees. Besides the campus aspect, all of the professors I have had so far have been very welcoming and easygoing which has allowed me to smoothly transition into the college scene. If there was one thing I could just about the campus it would not be the academics or involvement, it would be the parking. Although there are off-campus areas we are able to park at it would be more convenient to park closes to my classes.
