To mark the student group's 25th anniversary, the University of North Georgia's (UNG) Political Science Student Association (PSSA) is hosting "Then and Now" discussions, led by four of the association's previous presidents. The association also changed the name of its "Crossfire Discussions," originally named after the former CNN show, to "Crossroads Discussions."

"The Crossroads Discussions actually began as faculty lunch discussions, but quickly evolved into faculty-student gatherings, and then to the current student-focused format all in the first few months of 1994," said Dr. Carl Cavalli, a professor of political science at UNG.

The purpose of the "Then and Now" discussions is to talk about how issues have changed between the past presidents' time with the organization and today.

Three of these discussions have already occurred. The first, "Terrorism and the Economy," led by Chris Conowal (PSSA president, fall 2003), discussed the top issues of 2003 and took place Feb. 13. The second, "Civility in Politics," happened Feb. 20 and was led by Glenn Davis (PSSA president, 1996-97). Haleigh Herring (PSSA president, spring 2013) spoke on March 20.

The remaining discussion features Andrea (Klug) Reed (PSSA president 2002-03) on April 24.
