Programs and Learning

The Commons were designed in a way that allows students of all different levels of experience to learn from one another and study together. Kaneko has a programming budget that is distributed entirely at the discretion of the Commons Council, which is elected by residents of Kaneko. This budget can be used to make almost anything happen, from pool parties and pizza to hall trips to Blazer games - even amenities like our gas BBQ, fire pit, and new televisions. All Kaneko residents are invited to attend council meetings or work with their Wing Representative and RA to make programs happen.
