Why Students Choose to Live in Akwe:kon

For 25 years Akwe:kon has been a "home away from home" for students. It was the first Native American residential program house in the country. Beautifully designed with Haudenosaunee/ Iroquois symbols throughout, Akwe:kon is a community that celebrates culture and supports one another.

"Akwe:kon has been a safe haven for me and has become a second home to most of us who reside within its walls. Being a part of Akwe:kon has allowed me to explore the beautiful and abundant cultures among my fellow peers. I have also come to realize that Akwe:kon is more than just a program house, it's a family".  Laura Lagunez '16
