Crossroads is a retreat for Emory students. This year marks Crossroads’ 8th anniversary. It is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Programs and Services (OMPS); however, it is organized and run completely by students. The first two retreats, Crossroads 1 and 2, are designed to help first year students adjust to college life. It also focuses on community building and team building. Additionally, there is a retreat during spring semester, Crossroads 3, which is geared towards upperclassmen. Crossroads 3 is a retreat more focused on community building among Emory’s diverse community.Students may only attend one retreat during their time as Emory students.
OMPS and the Crossroads program do a tremendous job of encouraging an inclusive and adaptable environment that cultivates the ability to bring out the best in our diverse university and creating a sense of community with people from different backgrounds.
