Enrollment continues to climb at ABAC

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

While enrollment is dropping at most Georgia Colleges, it's going up significantly at one South Georgia school. Enrollment this semester at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College is up about 7% over last spring following a 5% increase in the fall.     

The increase comes even after their largest fall graduating class ever. "It's terrific to look at that list we just looked at enrollment figures from other institutions and it's down, here we are five and a half percent up," David Bridges, President, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.       

ABAC offers associate and baccalaureate. The college is named after Abraham Baldwin, a signer of the U.S. Constitution from Georgia and the first president of the University of Georgia.
