Your Suggestions Matter

 Student suggestions have impacted the college in following ways:

  • The college now hosts wireless internet hotspots throughout campus
  • The vending machines have less junk food and more healthier options
  • The college built a covered bus shelter outside of the Simpson building
  • More resources have been made available on the web site
  • The college has installed more bike racks around the campus
  • Designated client/patient parking in front of Rhododendron and Birch Buildings, so Dental Clinic and Spa Therapies clients will not have to look for parking

Do you have a comment or suggestion about how we can improve you experience at A-B Tech?  All students are invited to attend SGA meetings in Holly Library, Room 121. Dates are listed in the Student Handbook & Calendar, as well as on the Student Government page.  A different discussion topic is brought to the table at each meeting.

You may drop comments, concerns, or questions you would like to voice off at the SGA office in the Coman Center. You can also email them to sga@abtech.edu, or call the SGA office at 828-398-7205.
