Tifton -- Another record enrollment at Abraham Baldwin College has administrators scrambling for housing.

 It was the first day of classes for more than 3500 students at ABAC College. That is about 100 more students than last quarter.

New ABAC President Dr. David Bridges says the college's growth is a great accomplishment, but causes some growth problems as classes begin. Bridges said " Getting students admitted, enrolled, and in housing. All Our beds are full. We have had to send students out into the community for private housing, because our beds are full. "

 It was also the first day of classes for nursing students at ABAC's new Health Sciences Building.

 This class will be on track to graduate during ABAC's celebration of it's 100th anniversary in 2007-2008.
