About Global Crossroads
Global Crossroads, located in the Pennsylvania Avenue Residence Halls, is designed to challenge and motivate students whose interests, experiences, and aspirations have a strong international component. Both academic and co-curricular programs support the students’ sustained engagement across cultural differences. The community of 120 students is co-educational with about equal numbers of international and domestic students. Just over 50 percent of the students have majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences followed by 22 percent from Engineering. Another five percent each come from the College of Business, Fine and Applied Arts, and Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences.
With resources and support from University Housing, Student Affairs, and the Office of the Provost, Global Crossroads provides on-site courses with an international focus, a faculty speaker series, a guest-in-residence program, and specially designed programs emphasizing cross-cultural interaction with both intellectual and social dimensions.
