Tifton- For the first time in it's 94-year history, Abraham Baldwin College has more than 3,000 students.  It's the second straight year ABAC set a record enrollment, and the fourth year straight year that more students have decided to pursue a higher education in Tifton.

Mike Vollmer, ABAC President, said, "We're extremely happy, because it means we're the choice of many South Georgia students, but also it shows new programs and technolgy seem very popular." 

ABAC is in the middle of some major expansion projects that will add new classroom buildings and dorms in the next ten years. Right now 700 students live on campus, the highest figure for any two-year college in the state.
