Reed Hall Occupancy

Reed Hall is a traditional hall that houses all classes of students, most of which are freshman and sophomores, with a handful of juniors and seniors. The atmosphere in Reed Hall is very relaxed. The community promotes a focus on accepting each other and embracing our differences. Reed has also made an intentional effort to promote and support IWU athletic teams. The ResLife staff often has calendars of games and events, and makes attending games a community building activity.


Reed Hall, also known as "The REEDeemer's House," is a place where women can find physical emotional, and spiritual healing, restoration, and redemption through the power of Jesus Christ and the community of believers working in His power and might to accomplish His purposes.

Jeannie Banter Portrait

'My desire is for the women of Reed Hall to know the fullness of life that is in Christ and to learn to daily walk in His abundant life.'

My journey to IWU in the fall of 2012 came through a series of saying, "yes" to Jesus. My journey of saying of saying "yes" to Jesus lead me to work in residence life as a college student, to a year of service as a missionary in Africa, the pursuit of a master's degree in counseling psychology and now back to my first love and calling to serve alongside college students at IWU. I am humbled and excited to journey with these young women as they grow into the women God created them to be.
