I still remember my first visit to Cate, and it's probably a memory that will stay with me for years to come. I remember stepping on the Mesa, wide eyed and excited, yet still having butterflies. I remember the warmth of the community as soon as I arrived, along with the indimidation of knowing that I was surrounded by stellar students. After the nervousness fizzled away as my freshman year began, I slowly found my own place, and have been grateful for making the decision to come to Cate ever since. First visits always come with mixed feelings, but my best advice is don't let those scare you away from giving Cate a well deserved chance.
