Horizons is a three-day, two-night experience away from the distractions and busy-ness of everyday life.
Students will be allowed to move into their residence halls before leaving for the retreat on the Sunday before PTV. We will return to campus in time for the start of first-year student orientation. Horizons itself will take place at an off-campus retreat center. The format of the retreat involves listening, reflecting, small and large group discussions, free time and fellowship-building. For more information and to register, please visit the Horizons page.
