On the Job Learning

When Southeast opened Catapult Creative House in 2015, the goal was to give students a way to put their entrepreneurial mindset to work.

Three years later, art students display work regularly in the gallery, viewed and celebrated each month as part of the city’s First Friday with the Arts walk. Hospitality management students run Fuel, the in-house coffee bar and catering business called upon by the community for events. Interior design students run Catapult Interiors, a business providing commercial and residential interior design services to community clients. A new computing station workspace was opened earlier this year for tech-inspired student entrepreneurs to use specific programs and software to pursue their business goals. Students with their own fashion lines, jewelry lines, and health and beauty lines sell their creations at the in-house retail shop. And, the facility has been home to lectures ranging from Microsoft to the Property Brothers as well as arts and cultural programs.

It’s no wonder the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International recognized Catapult as one of only 35 innovations driving innovation in business education worldwide.
