Here at ATA College, we are so proud of our alumni! It is always fun to catch up with them after they have gone out into the workforce to get some of their thoughts!

We asked 4 students questions about their ATA experience. Here’s what they said:

Student Holiday Party 2013

The Good Stuff

Every once in a while we are able to take a step back, enjoy one another’s company, and celebrate together.  Recently our ATA family celebrated the holidays with our 2nd Annual Holiday party on December 12, 2013.  Faculty, staff, students, family and friends gathered on campus for a journey through the North Pole to meet Santa.  Adults and children enjoyed crafts and snacks along the way with stops in the Elf School, Reindeer Stables, and Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen.

Buddy the Elf was there to help children write their letters to Santa and “apply” to be an elf.

Elf school was surely a success.  That is until the Grinch showed his ugly face and announced Christmas was cancelled.  To which, the children of course replied, “Noo, Noo” in a unanimous uproar.

The Reindeer Stables were waiting just down the hall with fun for all ages. Each visitor crafted their own reindeer ornament and made their helping of “reindeer food” before moving on to Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen where more treats awaited!

Mrs. Claus and her helpers were on hand to help decorate delicious, Christmas cookies, with enough sprinkles and icing to keep the kids up until the wee hours of night.

At the end of the journey Santa was waiting!  Along with warm hot chocolate and a family photo to take home, we all relished the time to relax and enjoy a small reprieve before finals.


As finals week is winding down and we prepare to spend time off with family and friends we want to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a joyous holiday season!   With the stress of life and school, it is sometimes hard to find time to spend with those we love the most.  The dedication our students show to their academic achievement and the commitment they make to their future is an inspiration to us all.  We hope you are able to spend the rest of the year with those you love the most, enjoying the good stuff!
