Apply to be on the HORIZONS staff team!

Posted by Chad

Horizons is a life changing experience, and personally one of my most favourite moments while at McMaster. If you're an upper-year student, I HIGHLY recommend applying to be a staff leader for the Horizons conference. It's an MSU-run event where you'll be helping incoming first-year McMaster students learn all about student life at McMaster and participate in awesome team building activities over multiple days. Students and staff sleep in a residence during the event. It's truly an amazing experience, and you will benefit and grow from it, plus you learn a lot of leadership qualities that you'll take into real-world applications in the future.
