The Atlas University and the Division of Student Affairs have come together to assist students during the transitional period into college. Students will focus on individual development that prepares them for life beyond the classroom setting. The objective is to facilitate the development of students on a personal level; as well as begin to understand possible symptoms of depression. Removing these nuances, students can gain introspective experiences and begin to resolve itself and better understand their circumstances and how to improve them.
