TIFTON, Ga. (WALB) - The Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) Stallions will gallop into a new semester a little later this year.

ABAC students will return for the start of the spring semester on Jan. 25.

In the announcement, ABAC President David Bridges said he “hopes to gain an advantage on the post-holiday COVID-19 surge by giving students, faculty, and staff more time to prepare for a safe beginning for the 2021 spring term.”

By pushing back the date, the college said it will gain an extra week for the surge “to resolve, and only lose four days of classes because we were scheduled to start on Jan. 19.”

The college said student schedules will remain the same and that eCore classes will still begin on Jan. 11.

“The hard work, planning, cooperation, and personal responsibility of our faculty, staff, and students made the fall semester plan work,” the college said. “We want to do everything we can to position ourselves for a successful spring term.”
