  • "If you're going to lead, lead."
  • "Teaching is the most valuable profession on Earth. Nothing happens for these children unless you do something for them. You will see one day that teaching will save someone's life."

— Linda Cliatt-Wayman, former principal of Strawberry Mansion High School in Philadelphia, spoke to Penn State Abington Elementary and Early Childhood Education majors.  

Penn State Abington, formerly the Ogontz campus, offers baccalaureate degrees in 19 majors at its suburban location just north of Philadelphia. Nearly half of our 4,000 students complete all four years at Abington, with opportunities in undergraduate research, the Schreyer honors program, NCAA Division III athletics, and more. Students can start the first two years of more than 160 Penn State majors at Abington and complete their degrees at University Park or another campus. Lions Gate, our first residence hall, opened in August 2017.
