What makes you YOU? The Cultural Crossroads community can help you discover your passions and common interests while learning more about the world around you.

Expand your sights, open your mind, and discover everyday existence as a global citizen through the exploration of culture, language, and lifestyle—an inclusive community where the whole person is valued. Students will deepen their capacity for learning and understanding shared values, social practices, and expressions.

LEARN WHERE YOU LIVE

Here students design their own adventure and dive more deeply into their passions and skill development around culture, language, and lifestyle. Through special guest lectures, seminars, workshops, social gatherings, and access to both on- and off-campus performances, exhibits, and speakers, students carve their own path of exploration.

LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Resident Advisor (RA): Work closely with the Cultural Crossroads team as a primary resource for students to build a sense of home and support community connections and involvement. Students interested in this position should be on the lookout for RA Info Sessions in November.

Cultural Crossroads Student Employee: If you have a Federal Work-Study award, you may apply to be one of our communities' student employees. Learn new skills while helping create a sense of community that is positive, supports inclusion and difference, and raises the excitement for the Learning Community with thoughtful and intentional programs.

Hall Council Member: A great way to have a voice and action in our Cultural Crossroads community. More information about Hall Council will be available at the beginning of the fall semester.

EVENTS

Just a few of the great programs you can find here:

  • Voices of Africa is a night of storytelling that gives Cultural Crossroads the opportunity to celebrate the Talent & Brilliance of our African/Black Students. This event is a chance for vulnerability and artistic expression to bring our community together and strengthen our connection.
  • Lunar New Year is a Cultural Crossroads signature event that offers students a chance to learn about and celebrate Lunar New Year.  This event features traditional foods, Taiko drumming, and activities such as Chinese character writing, red envelope affirmations, and New Year fortune scratch offs.
