Atlas believes that education is “for me”–the student–to realize my potential via a college degree. Education is “for us”–our Atlas community–to bring one another along in our pursuit of our passions and future degrees. And at Atlas, education is “for others.” We believe that a college education is only valuable if utilized for the betterment of our community and society.
