Student enrollment sprouts at local college
While many colleges have struggled with enrollment in the current economy, the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College is actually seeing some significant increases.
ABAC President David Bridges announced Monday that student enrollment for four-year bachelor's degrees is up almost 40%, a significant increase that school officials says signifies something even more important.
"It is a game-changer for us, you know it means that there's a recognition now that's stuck, that we are a baccalaureate institution and we do offer quality programs," said Bridges.
Student enrollment is so strong, in fact, the dorms are at full capacity and a waiting list has begun for those who are still hoping to live on campus when classes begin next week.
