ABAC plans event in Moultrie Thursday

MOULTRIE — “Back To Your Future,” an event geared to prospective adult students who are interested in continuing their education, will take place Thursdsay, April 12, from 6-8 p.m. at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College’s Moultrie location, ABAC on the Square. This is an opportunity that will allow adult learners who have been out of the classroom for awhile to chat with a current adult student and get information on admissions and financial aid.

“Prospective students can get their questions answered and learn about the application and financial aid processes,” said Kaitlin Stannard, enrollment counselor in the Office of Admissions. “This event will be beneficial to those who are thinking about going back to school but don’t know where or how to start. We want the ‘Back To Your Future’ event to relieve some of those concerns.”

Non-traditional students are classified as those 25 years or older at the time of matriculation. The population of these students enrolled in universities and colleges throughout the state of Georgia has risen over the past several years. According to the University System of Georgia website, the population of non-traditional students in Georgia increased by more than 1,000 students fall term 2010 to fall term 2011. At ABAC on the Square, non-traditional students make up 22 percent of the population currently enrolled in classes.

“Back To Your Future will be an informal event with opportunities for adults who are interested in attending college to get their questions answered on an individual basis by admissions and financial aid representatives,” according to Gail Dillard, director of ABAC on the Square. “They will also hear from current adult students on their experiences in balancing work, family, and other responsibilities with college study.”

Sign up today by contacting Dillard at 229-891-7235 or Classes for summer term at ABAC begin June 4. Fall semester classes start on Aug. 13.
