ABAC construction almost complete

November 24, 2003

Tifton- Among the five new construction projects, a new 39,000 square-foot Agricultural Sciences building.

It has a distance learning classroom, 5 general labs and even an outdoor lab for livestock.

The school is also building ABAC place apartments. Each 1,400 square foot unit has four bedrooms, a full kitchen, two bathrooms, internet access, and cable.

"Students do much better academically if they can stay on the campus, so here we're building the most modern facility in the nation right in the middle of the ABAC campus. Our students are very happy about this we're concerned if we're going have enough room at 835 beds," says President Mike Vollmer.

Rent for the new rooms will be $345.00 a month. The first 200 rooms of the new housing complex will be available in January.
