“Catalyst was a great opportunity for me to get ahead in college. It was also a great transition from high school to college. But the most beneficial part was being in a group of people that shared similar backgrounds. We are all connected and by the end of Catalyst we were all pretty close. I would say if anyone is considering doing Catalyst, do it, you won’t regret it.”
