Tifton--  The tight squeeze at growing Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College will soon be eased with the construction of new dorm rooms.

Today, the Board of Regents approved a new freshman housing project. The 16.9-million dollar ABAC Lakeside dorms will house nearly 500 students on the shores of Lake Baldwin.

This semester, school leaders had to scramble to find housing for students after they reached an enrollment record.  

"This Fall we know that we lost students because we didn't have rooms available for them. We don't know how many. We also know that our enrollment was up this fall and we anticipate that it will be up even more next fall," says ABAC Development Director Melvin Merrill.

The new dorms should be ready by next Fall. The groundbreaking will take place next month.
