The school is small and in a beautiful part of South Georgia where there are plenty of activities in around the community for college students, even at the school. The students are friendly and very kind as well welcoming. The faculty and staff help with any and all problems that one may encounter.
Tips for prospective students
Always study no matter how difficult the class and even study before the next class, you never know when the teachers bring up a pop quiz. Attend class everyday, ABAC has an attendence policy where when you attend class you get grades and when you don't go to class, you lose points off your next test/exam.
Academic Rigor
The classes are slightly difficult but if you study proper;y then you can succeed at anything. Do NOT go out and party or slack off, the school can and will kick you out for that.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is very relaxed and friendly. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and your peers are very helpful and friendly.
Food and Dining
The dining hall isn't the best in the world and it sure isn't momma's cooking, but the student and faculty always look forward to Fried Chicken Thursdays every week.
What to do for fun
There is a swimming pool on campus as well as two fitness gyms that are free to the college students. There are also horse stables on campus and a lake for fishing. The school has many events and activities going on for students to do in their spare time. There is also a bowling alley in town and a fair in November.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The Polar Bear Plunge into the pool in the middle of January. The water is always frrezing but it's just a fun thing to do and a good way to meet new people!
Clubs and Activities
There are a variety of clubs and activities for students on campus. Clubs range from Cattleman's to C.A.B. to FFA and there is always something new going on around campus for students to get involved in.
Greek Life
There are 2 Fraternities and one Sorority on campus and both are located in the 100 building of ABAC Place. The Sorority is on the 2nd floor while the 2 Fraternities are on the 1st and the 3rd floors.
Campus Safety
The ABAC Police are always patrolling the campus and keeping an eye out for the students and staff.

Great class sizes. Great atmosphere. Close knit community that encourages learning.
Tips for prospective students
Do your research for majors. Now that the school has been upgraded to a 4 year, there are many majors to choose from.
Academic Rigor
Classes are not at all like high school, but there are many opportunities for students to get tutored. There is the Academic Achievement Center with tutors from all academic subjects, and you can also schedule conferences with your teacher.
Dorm Life
Living is pretty good. The only downside is the wi-fi. There may be a strong signal on your roomate's side, but not on yours.
Food and Dining
Best pizza on campus...and there's a Pizza Hut on campus! Many variety of foods. You can even have breakfast at lunch.
What to do for fun
There's a student center for lounging around on campus with snacks and a coffee shop inside. There is also a pool room, media room, and lounge in the freshman dorm.
Bang for the buck
Tuition is about $4,000 dollars and the cost of living in the area is plenty reasonable.
Great for these types of students
want to live close to home, don't want to live on huge, spaced out campuses, or just want a chill-lax environment.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs to join from music and concert choir to STEM related clubs
Greek Life
sorrorities and fraternities
Campus Safety
Campus police patrol around the clock. They have these cute little mini cars; it's hard not to notice they're there.
