 Tifton --  Students at ABAC will soon have a new place to call home.   The university unveiled its new Lakeside freshman apartment facility Friday. They're still putting on the final touches, but they wanted to give the public a peak at what's in store when students move in in August.

The new apartments are located on campus and will house almost 500 students. Two students will share one room complete with all the amenities of a regular apartment, except a kitchen.

Administrators say that will encourage first year students to eat in the dining hall and interact with other students.

"We see students today are somewhat different than students of the past," said ABAC President David Bridges. "They have computers, they have things that allow them to live rather independent lives, which in some cases is not all good and we need for them to itneract with one another and develp social bonds."

Valdosta based Ambling University Development Group is building the facility. The new apartments coincide with ABAC's 100th anniversary.
