Hey Future iSci 2014's,
This sounds like an incredible opportunity for us to learn more about McMaster, gain leadership skills, and meet other first-years before Welcome Week. I hope to see some iSci's at HORIZONS this August!

This looks cool! I really want to get involved this year, and this looks like it's a pretty interesting first step towards that goal. Did you find it to be worth while, Prateek?

Yeah, it wasn't anything mindblowing, but it was definitely fun. It's good preparation for the insanely spirited Welcome Week (which I'm sure you'll all be part of!!).

I also remember there were 'workshops' that help in kind of outlining some of the problems you will face in university, and what steps you can take in overcoming them. There are also "leadership" type workshops -- which aren't too different from any high school type leadership camps, if you have been to those.

It was also just an all around fun time. When I went, there was bowling, a dance competition (Alex was amazing at that), a couple really cool guest speakers, a dance event at Charlie West, and I remember this one manhunt type game in the Student Centre that was pretty cool.

You also meet a whole lot of people! Like during the school year I would always come across people again I met at Horizons. And it's a really great icebreaker, just saying "hey, were you at Horizons?"

It's a definite recommend from me... but if you already are really comfortable socially, not too worried about the university transition, and are familiar with the Mac campus and lifestyle, I would pass.

Hey Ryan, yea Prateek and I were there last year and I would definately recommend it. Besides leadership stuff, it also gets you to know some people on campus before anybody else which I think is a good thing. Def helps to know people when you're going somewhere new.
