The Lodges are a welcoming home where upperclassmen students learn how to be an active part of a community, learn skills necessary for independent living, and strive to serve others on campus and in Marion, while gaining purpose, faith, and commitment to Christ.
The Lodges are a great place for upperclassmen to gain some independence while still being able to live in community, build friendships, and enjoy spending time with other upperclassmen that have similar interests and life circumstances.
Lodge residents are able to choose however much community they want and need to finish college well and transition into a new place. Numerous opportunities are available for Lodge residents to learn skills necessary for life after college while still having social interactions with 240 other upperclassmen.
‘My desire is for Lodge residents to develop the necessary skills to transition successfully out of college while also enjoying the unique time that they have at IWU.’
I came to Indiana Wesleyan University in the fall of 2005 because I wanted to work among collegians during this formational period of their lives. I am especially interested in the developmental needs of college students and have pursued a master’s degree in Counseling to understand and implement programs better here at IWU.

The Lodges first opened in August of 2005. All three Lodge buildings are set up apartment style. Each Lodge has eight 4-man apartments as well as eight 6-man apartments. Each Lodge has two floors with a common central lobby area, front desk, chapel, conference room, computer lab, wellness room, and two laundry facilities. Lodges have a fireplace with a moose head above the mantel matching the mountain décor.
At St. Martin’s Community Center, residents of the Lodges have volunteered their time and gifts in the thrift store. Additionally, they have also ministered to the community through efforts with ReaLife and the Boys and Girls Club.
