ABOUT THIS SCHOOL
Dean of Arts and Sciences
|I love ABAC because of the "at home" atmosphere it has. Even though ABAC is an Ag-based school, it has introduced me to a variety of the programs it has to offer. I have had the privilege of becoming an ABAC Ambassador, a member of the Stallion Society and ATOM club. ABAC has guided and pushed me to become the best student I can be. Here at ABAC, you are truly a name, not just a number and the professors strive to know you on a personal level. ABAC has all the best features you are looking for in a college.|
|I love ABAC! I am so thankful for the resources that ABAC offers me. I know that when needed, I can always receive free tutoring, counseling, or advising.|
