Tifton--The new residence hall at Abraham-Baldwin College will have all the comforts of home. Ground was broken today for the thirty-two million dollar project that will house over 750 students.

The new building will include many special features. "Features that many my age wouldn't recognize, full kitchen, bathroom, private bedroom, cable TV, Internet, computer lounges, a fitness center, convenience store so this will be a completely different concept than old dorms that many of us are accustomed to," says ABAC President Mike Vollmer.

Mike Chason, ABAC's Public Relations director is just one of the many excited about the new development "I think I've been at ABAC twenty-five years and I've never seen a project as fantastic as this. It's going change the whole face of the campus forever."

200 beds will be available in January of 2004, and the remainder of the rooms will be ready for students by the fall semester of 2004.
