Throughout the weekend, delegates participate in several sessions. Sessions are done in small groups and consist of different activities. They provide a great opportunity to get closer to your peers and to learn more about important topics. Sessions range from being silly to serious and are designed to be adaptable so that they appeal to everyone. Some of this year’s session themes are wellness, growth, empowerment. All sessions have tangible takeaways that delegates can apply throughout their university experience. Everyone’s experience with sessions is different, but they are sure to be a memorable part of your Horizons experience!
