CATalyst Studios (coming soon)

CATalyst Studios Director Jennifer Nichols gives us a walk-through tour of the renovated space.

This is the place for big ideas.

A "catalyst" makes change happen. That's what we are. That's what we do.

At CATalyst Studios in the Main Library, you'll connect with new people and technology in a space that welcomes everyone. Our friendly staff and students will work with you to make amazing things happen.
