I chose ABAC for the endless opportunities the college has to offer. Being on a smaller campus versus a larger one gives me the opportunity to experience more and become involved. Everyone is so willing to help and genuinly kind, I know that ABAC is the college for me!
Name: Kamanski Jordan Hometown: Tifton, Ga.
I chose ABAC for the high standard of education here at home, as opposed to going further away to college. I see that the instructors are always available for one-on-one assistance, and they are eager to instruct in such a way that all students have a greater chance of understanding. The friendly and comfortable environment at ABAC allows for complete academic success.
