East Lodges Occupancy

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.

MISSION STATEMENT

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.

"My hope for the Lodges is that the upperclassmen would find support and community with one another, and a deeper knowledge of God’s grace and vision as they begin the journey away from Indiana Wesleyan toward life after college."

My hometown is a little Norwegian town near Seattle, Washington, but since this is now year three in the Midwest, I consider myself a Midwestern transplant. After graduating with a degree in English, I thought I wanted to be a professor of English literature. Fortunately, God had other plans. After completing my Masters in Higher Education and Student Development, I am thrilled to be serving on ResLife staff here at Indian Wesleyan. While I still love reading, I am passionate about working alongside students as they seek God in every aspect of their lives. I particularly love connecting with residents over a good cup of coffee.

Hometown: Poulsbo, WA
Colleges Attended: Whitworth University and Taylor University
Degree: Bachelor’s Degree in English, Master’s Degree in Higher Education and Student Development
Best ResLife memory:
Epically tripping down a hill, while on a staff outing, in front of the entire men’s soccer team. It was so epic that I received an award and got to re-tell the story in front of all ResLife at the end of the year.
Best thing about my job:
Waking up each morning and thinking “I love every single thing I get to do today.”
Best thing about IWU:
The Lodges, of course. Also the passion for tradition combined with innovation that is evident across campus.

Community Outreach

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 theBoys and Girls Club.
