Meet Nick & Ryley

We have some really amazing students here at Horizon.  Our community is small and tight knit, and therefore it is easy to get to know one another.  It has been a joy to get to know each and every one of these students over these past few months and we want to give you the opportunity to get to know them as well!

Therefore, it is time for another Horizon College Interview. Meet Nick and Ryley, first year students, roommates, and “college clowns.”
