1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: My campus does not have Greek Life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are too important to us because we are not the "BIG" Penn State.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, I've had an good experience at Penn State. I'm just looking for better years apart of the Penn State Family.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are very knowledgeable about their subjects and teach effectively. Class sizes are fairly small for a university setting. A large variety of courses are available.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every semester there is a job fair held to help graduates and students still enrolled to find jobs. The alumni are always excited to hire Penn State students.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus crime is extremely low, and if there is any incident or someone feels unsafe the security guards will quickly take care of it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: PSU Abington does not currently have on campus housing options. They will be available beginning in Fall of 2017 for freshman.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We only have one sorority on campus and I don't really know much about it besides that it exists.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are secondary to academics at PSU Abington. Students who are involved in sports are very involved, but those of us who are not on a sports team don't pay much attention to them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: PSU Abington has plenty of places to hang out with friends on and off campus. Student organizations and on campus events allow relationships to develop and makes it easier for people to make friends.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed some of my professors this past year. They had office hours that usually worked around my schedule or they would schedule a day that I could meet them if their office hours didn't work for me. One of my professors stayed an extra hour to help me study for a test which I really appreciated that she took time out of her day to help me. The class sizes were good depending on the subject of the class. My smallest class was 20 students and my biggest class was 90 students. There is a good variety of courses to choose from but some classes that are needed for your major might be at a different branch campus or at the main campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every semester there are job fairs that help students find internships or actual jobs. I think this is very helpful for when it is my time to look for an internship. Also, a degree from Penn State is a high-quality degree and I've heard that a lot of businesses take Penn State graduates right away. The alumni network is absolutely incredible. They are so passionate about their experience at Penn State and really engage themselves in sporting events or any type of Penn State fundraiser.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Thankfully there hasn't been any type of crime on campus that I have heard about or witnessed. There are security guards that usually drive around campus every hour or two.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Since the Abington branch campus is a commuter college there are no dorms on campus. However, there are apartment complexes associated with the school. It is nice being able to have an apartment instead of living in a small dorm. Also the building I live in lets us do laundry for free which is amazing. We don't have to spend money on laundry which helps our wallets. Another plus side to living in an apartment is having my own room and sink. The only area my roommates and I share are the living room, bathroom, and kitchen area. Even though it's an apartment building the building is specifically for Penn State college students so it's not like I'm missing the "dorm experience".

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Something that makes my campus unique is the amount of diversity there is on campus. It is fun meeting new people from all across the world and getting to learn about their cultures and the traditions they partake in their countries. Also for being a campus with only 4,000 students, there are students from 100 different foreign countries.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Majority of the professors are nice but not all are great at explaining their lessons. The class size is alright and because the campus is small, some of the courses are fall only and if you miss it, too bad.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The services on campus are okay.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think the safety on campus is great. I feel quite safe walking on campus alone at night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They don't have a dorm yet, so you have to look for off-campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think it depends on the campus if it's at the main campus, then the school spirit would be better. I think because of the limitations, there is not much to involve in school and it sees quite boring to me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is okay depending on the campus. I think Penn State Abington is alright but there are still some ares that need to be changed/improved.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When we had a possible shooting on campus earlier PSU abington made me feel safe with them sending us an email on what was going on.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like how the classes are smaller in size and i liked most of my professors, but not all of them. I also liked all the topics that i took in my classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I never personally went to the career center but others have told me that it does wonders.
