Friendship was in full force over the four days as I watched brothers from all over our continent interact. Justice was evident in examples provided by over 150 alumni facilitators to each attending undergraduate. Balfour LTW embodies learning as it allows brothers of all ages to grow as men.

Throughout the week we explored our individual abilities as leaders in great detail, evaluated our strengths and weaknesses and discovered strategies that we could use to improve our leadership aptitude. We received constructive feedback and were given the opportunity to lead our groups through leadership challenges. Whether it was working with undergraduates or alumni, the level of respect given to everyones development as a leader was unparalleled to any leadership program I have ever participated in. Regardless of background or experience, every brother was challenged to grow in a way that participation in school organizations could not rival. I learned so much about myself as a leader that week and since leaving Utah, I have made a concerted effort to improve on my weaknesses. Since Horizons I have taken on more intensive leadership roles within the chapter, campus and work and I have noticed a tangible difference in my abilities as a result of Horizons.
