I have only recently committed to Penn State Abington as a transfer student for this upcoming semester. So far, I love the campus and the environment. It has the small school feel, while still being connected to a large worldwide campus. The people on campus have only been friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend applying early! Application processing and review takes a while.
Everyone is extremely kind and considerate, possibly because of how diverse of a campus PSU abington is. People are approachable, friendly and helpful. It is not very difficult to make friends at school. Because it is a commuter campus the atmosphere is not the same as other college campuses. It is not the kind of place student come to party and the general mind set of students is one of focus towards classes. Do not misunderstand of course students have an active social life, but by no means could you call Abington a party school.
