Why ABAC? I chose ABAC because of the small class sizes and friendly atmosphere. When I first visited ABAC I really liked the small campus and the feeling of home. I also really liked Coach Campbell. She is really easy to talk and to get along with. All of the players were really nice and friendly when I came to visit.
