4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a huge diversity in Penn State Abington. There are so many different ethnicities that I can't count them. There are many different flags in the school and there is an international club, and also an ambassador group. The school also encouraged people to go study abroad in a wide range of different countries.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Students are accepting to students who are different in ethnic or race. Religion and political belief is not effective in creating acceptance between students.

Diversity: The diversity on campus is great because it allows people from every aspect of every culture to come together and to share things with one another and teach each other new things.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think we have a sense of community, but most people are really anti-social due to it being a commuter school.

4 College Junior

Diversity: One of the most diverse campuses!
