MOULTRIE -- Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College President Michael Vollmer addressed the need of expanding ABAC on the Square to the Moultrie business community Tuesday.

Vollmer was at ABAC on the Square Tuesday morning to address the future student needs of both ABAC in Tifton and ABAC on the Square. He said the enrollment at ABAC on the Square has "maxed out" the current campus and is looking at the possibility of expansion.

The school has contacted an architectural firm to look at the potential of expansion, Vollmer said. The task of the firm is to examine whether the school needs more space, to find the best site if there is a need for it and to determine how large the facility needs to be to accommodate students.

The current enrollment at ABAC on the Square is higher than anyone could have ever expected, Vollmer said. When ABAC on the Square was established, the school never envisioned having more than 400 students attending classes there. What is also impressive to Vollmer is most of those students are traditional students.

The future "looks awfully bright" for ABAC on the Square, Vollmer said.

Enrollment at the school is growing in all areas, and students are able to take courses in nursing, education and business.

Vollmer said he was also grateful to the business community and residents of Moultrie for their support. Without the support of the community, ABAC on the Square would have never been able to grow to its current size, he said.
