Mar. 13—TIFTON — A virtual information session focusing on the School of Arts and Sciences at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College will be available to prospective students via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on March 23.
"The choice about where to go to college is a big decision," Matthew Anderson, dean of ABAC's School of Arts and Sciences, said. "We want to provide prospective students and their families as many opportunities as we can for them to learn more about ABAC and the great programs in the School of Arts and Sciences."
Anderson will open the session and provide some general information about ABAC and the School of Arts and Sciences. Breakout rooms for each program will then be available where guests can learn more about specific programs, ask questions, and meet an ABAC faculty member.
"Participants will be able to self-select the breakout rooms they go into and will thus be able to learn about as many different Arts and Sciences programs as they wish to pursue," Anderson said. "This event will allow anyone from anywhere to log on and learn more about our programs from the convenience of their own homes."
Prospective students can join this Zoom meeting at https://abacedu.zoom.us/j/91078553520.
