Intersections: A living-learning community of diversity, dialogue, and democracy.

Intersections, located in the Pennsylvania Avenue Residence Halls, is a multicultural community that supports students getting to know each other on a deeper level and fosters learning about cultural differences and similarities. All of the activities, whether academic or social, give students the opportunity to interact with each other in a real-world setting, expand their knowledge about cultural differences, and develop the skills to live in a multicultural society. 

The community of about 110 students is co-educational with men residing on one floor and women on the other. A wide variety of majors is represented in Intersections. Almost 50 percent of the students have majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences followed by 20 percent in Engineering and a little more than 10 percent in the Division of General Studies. About 7 percent are in business, 5 percent in Fine and Applied Arts and another 5 percent in Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences.
