Summer 2022’s Horizons group.
Horizons provides you the opportunity to gain a head start on your transition to college life, and connect with FLI classmates and FLI Student Leaders on campus during the 5 days before other students move in for Customs.
The program begins by honoring the many strengths you bring with you to Haverford, addresses concerns common among first-generation college students, introduces you to Haverford resources and opportunities, and helps you to build relationships with faculty and staff. Through workshops and activities, you will learn more about how to pursue and enhance your academic, leadership, and professional goals at Haverford. Even after the program ends, the experience and friends gained during Horizons will stay with you through your college journey.Students who attend Horizons will receive a $500 stipend to offset any missed wages from leaving home early. These funds can be used to help set up your dorm room, pay for travel expenses, or whatever you else you may need.
Summer 2023 Horizons will take place Friday, August 25–Wednesday, August 30.
