Horizons is an initiative from the Office of LGBTQ+ Student Engagement to support new LGBTQ+ students in their transition to life at UF and in the Gainesville community. It is an in-person program scheduled for August 26th and 27th for the Fall 2023 semester with monthly events throughout 2023-2024 academic year for all incoming first-year, transfer, and international UF students who self-identify as LGBTQ+.
