Horizons

The Horizons program supports multicultural students (freshmen to senior) in their matriculation through Providence College. Horizons programming includes a weekend retreat in the Fall semester, as well as a yearlong mentoring program between first year students and upper class students. It is our commitment that students are given the tools to navigate and acclimate to the campus culture while maintaining their identity and cultural values.

​Goals and Objectives

  • To build relationships with peers
  • To develop cultural agility through intercultural interaction
  • To create a network of support for multicultural students at Providence College​

Testimonials from Participants:

Emily Mora ’19:
“Horizons is the retreat you want to partake in. Because of Horizons, I was able to start off my freshman year feeling prepared and most importantly, I was able to call the participants of the retreat my family. (The program) honestly broadened my horizons in various aspects.”

Horace L. Robinson ’17:
“The Horizons retreat gave me the confidence and strength to develop into my own person on Providence College’s campus. Before Horizons I was very secluded and stuck to the people I knew from high school; after, I had the confidence to step out of my comfort zone and become the student leader and graduate I am today.”

Kanyinsola Adedeji ’17:
“I truly believe that without Horizons I would not have made it through my first year at Providence College! It was tough and challenging, but knowing that I had resources and people that I could rely on really helped me out a lot! And years later, the bond is still there.”​
