Tifton- Abraham Baldwin College president Mike Vollmer drove the backhoe, and started the demolition of the 30 year old building.

The site will soon become home to the second phase of the ABAC Place student apartment complex.

"It's always fun to come to ABAC because this is an alive campus, and good things are happening. To open this beautiful new building today is just a terrific plus for the campus and for the state," says University System Chancellor Thomas Meredith.

Meredith and newly re-appointed regent, Julie Hunt, also attended the grand opening of ABAC's new $7 million Agricultural Sciences building. The 39,000 square foot building opened this semester, and serves more than 700 students.
