Tifton, Ga. — Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) will implement several changes starting in the fall 2010 semester aimed at encouraging upperclassmen to live on campus. Returning third and fourth year students will receive a $750 discount off the yearly price for housing as well as the option of purchasing a meal plan, which is presently mandated for students living on campus. Upperclassmen will also have the option to sign a 10- or 12-month lease, and they will be subject to less frequent room inspections. Finally, they will be housed on the top floor of residence halls with other upperclassmen.
ABAC's on-campus housing currently consists of two facilities known as ABAC Place, which provides apartment-style housing, and Lakeside, a live-learn community for freshmen that opened in 2007. ABAC currently has a freshman residency requirement for students.
