TIFTON - Students starting at Abraham Baldwin College in Tifton this year will have it easier than previous year's students. 

ABAC has set up what they call a one stop shop. They took a part of the student center and transformed it into the Registrar's office, Admissions office and Business office, with Financial Aid right next door. The four offices used to be in three different buildings spread across campus.

"Students had to go from one office to another which was sometimes confusing for students," Tom Call, ABAC's Interim Vice President for Student and Enrollment Services said.

ABAC hopes the one stop shop will also make it easier for administrators to work together and eliminate repetitive tasks.
