Make the Cross-Cultural Center Your Summer Home Away from Home

If you are on campus this summer, remember that the Cross-Cultural Center is here for you. Whether you are in-between classes, on a break from work, or living on campus, we have you covered! Here are some of the ways you can make the CCC your summer home away from home:
  • Have lunch with us. Use the refrigerator to keep your food fresh, then use the microwave later to heat it up.
  • Use the computers to check your email, write a paper, or watch YouTube!
  • Lounge in our library or lobby with one of the many magazines and books we have available.
  • Watch a movie! We have a TV and a small selection of movies.
  • Take a nap in our tranquility room.
Stop in anytime from 9AM-4PM Monday-Friday. We hope to see you soon!
