Pour a mug of hot chocolate, hit the books, and then relax and take a look at what's coming up at Penn State Abington during the rest of 2017.

The keyword for 2017 at Penn State Abington? Options. New choices for student living in the first residence hall, more academic alternatives, and Student Affairs ups its game with new programs and events.
More than 400 students and staff will move into The Lions Gate residence hall for the fall 2017 semester. It sits just off campus in the heart of Abington Township with stores, restaurants, and public transportation all within walking distance.
The spring 2017 semester added the tiny European island nation of Malta to the destinations for students enrolled in specific courses, known as embedded programs. During spring break, students studied in England and Ireland and another group leaves for China in May.
The Penn State Abington Office of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion continues its evolution with new programming and supports for students in a changing world. It also implements the University's All In at Penn State initiative as it moves into its next stage.
