TIFTON — Suit up Stallions! The 2023 Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Homecoming Celebration is flying in on April 10-15 with the theme of “Top Gun Thunder: A Need for Steed.”
“Homecoming offers events for students, alumni and the community,” said ABAC Alumni Director Lynda Fisher. “It is a weeklong list of activities. We primarily focus on the students Monday
through Thursday and then the alumni Friday and Saturday.”
“The main thing is to get people back on campus,” she said. “They can meet people, reunite with old friends, make some new ones, and just celebrate ABAC.”
This year’s Homecoming festivities include the Gee Haw Whoa Back Rodeo, Homecoming Cookout, Alumni Awards Luncheon, Golden Alumni Gathering welcoming the class of 1973, a Cattlemen’s reunion, a Baptist Student Union/Baptist College Ministries reunion, Remembrance Service, and a Community Plant Sale.
Alumni can put their green thumb to work by purchasing flowers and shrubs from the ABAC Farm Greenhouse at the Community Plant sale on April 13-15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Alumni Awards Luncheon will be held April 14 at 12:30 p.m. in Gressette Gymnasium. Tickets are $25 and must be purchased by April 7. If any tickets remain after that date, the cost will be $30. No tickets will be sold at the event. Later that day, the Alumni After Party will take place at approximately 9:30 p.m. at the Alumni House patio following the rodeo.
