Edwina: The Cross-Cultural Center is a campus based community center in all sense of the word. So activities happen here, students study here, Faculty and Staff come through, community visit here. There’s art, there’s books, there’s food, there’s music. Anything that you would have in a community center. That’s basically what the Cross-Cultural center is as a site and a construct.
Melissa: I am at the Cross a couple times a week. Sometimes after class, or after something. Where am I going to go? I just think of the Cross. It just calls to me.
Josen: I just finished office hours, but I am hanging out with these graduate students behind me. We’re just hanging out, having lunch, and just catching up.
Lisette: It’s at the Price Center. It’s an open space where I can just come and go as I please. It’s also a very friendly environment. There has not been a day where I come in and… I’m always greeted, I am always noticed, and people here greet me with a smile.
Vio: The internship program is different from other programs out there, especially in the business world because we focus on developing interns professionally, personally, holistically, and a lot of other internship doesn’t focus on the person as a whole.
Grant: My name is Grant White, I am the Affiliates Intern at the Cross-Cultural Center and basically my job is to keep in communication with all of the Cross Cultural Center’s Affiliates, which are student orgs. Such as MEChA, the Black Student Union, there is the Jewish Student Association.
Anthony: The DPE workshops are specifically… they go into depth with a lot of various different activities. Some in the past that we’ve done, activities revolving around asking folks to think about their power, position, and privilege in relations to race, gender, sexuality, class, ableism.
Nancy: One of the things that I like about the Cross-Cultural Center is that…you know we function sometimes as a family. That includes the disagreements, the tears, the laughter, the checking-in. Everything that would entail a family structure and that’s what we do here.
