Crossroads Champions

Crossroads was born from the ideas and dreams of students. In that same spirit, Student Leaders are still an integral part of Crossroads. Crossroads is made possible by the passion and dedication of these Crossroads Champions.

Crossroads Champions are upper-division students in one of Emory's undergraduate colleges. They are selected through an application and interview process and participate in a comprehensive training program to prepare them for their roles and responsibilities.

They are responsible for leading a majority of the activities during the Crossroads Retreats and Crossroads Connect events as well as co-facilitating the Crossroads Direct circles in small teams during the fall semester.
