Although you were a only a student at ABAC for a season, you are an alumnus for life! Our alumni are very important to us. We want to stay in touch with you concerning events in your area and on the ABAC campus, and we also want to know about your achievements as an ABAC alumnus.
Alumni and Friends
ABOUT Alumni and Friends
The ABAC Alumni Association consists of over 40,000 former students who have completed at least 15 quarter hours or 10 semester hours at ABAC. The Director of Alumni Affairs, based in the Office of College Advancement, serves as the staff liaison to the Association.
Due to ABAC’s modified operations and response to COVID-19, all of the upcoming alumni events have been cancelled. This includes the Young Alumni Roundup in Savannah, the Regional Roundup in Florida, and the PTK Conference. For more information regarding the Coronavirus respone, please visit www.abac.edu/coronavirus.
Homecoming and Rodeo 2020
As a part of ABAC’s modified operational schedule, a decision has been made to postpone the weekend activities for alumni during Homecoming. This includes the Rodeo, the Alumni Awards Luncheon, Athletics Hall of Fame, Plant Sale, Run for the Nurses, the Alumni Cookout, all reunions and socials, and all other weekend events. We hope to reschedule many of these events for later in this calendar year. Please stay tuned for updates. If you would like to receive emails from the Alumni Association in regards to Homecoming, please update your information using the link on this page.
