A sisterhood bonding together in Christ. Dedicated to building authenticity, joy and capturing new moments. Together, we are beginning our journey for abundant lives in a Christ-like community.
Shatford House is an all freshmen women’s hall with upperclassmen leadership. In Shatford House, community and sisterhood are highly emphasized, which reinforces our Greek theme. Representing Shatford House are three Greek letters: Π Α Σ, they stand for Abundant Life, Beginning the Journey, and Christ-like Community.
Long standing traditions that are still celebrated today make Shatford House unique, along with its fun mascot: the duck.
‘When given the opportunity to share a piece of someone else’s life, treat it as though it were your own.’
I came to IWU in the fall of 2009 because I have a passion to serve freshmen college students. After one year working in the social work field and getting married, God led me to a job that I love! I consider it a high privilege to walk alongside these women in their college journey and to help support, challenge and grow them as they develop their identity in Christ and assimilate into college life.

Shatford House was built in 1963 and today is the oldest residence hall on campus. It was built with a then new technology where they actually built the top floor first, and it collapsed once in the process. Now, established and standing strong, Shatford is a great place to start at IWU. Because of its history, Shatford is a treasure trove of traditions, and residents get to share in experiences that Shatford women have enjoyed for many years.
One main event Shatford House facilitates in the community is Rake n’ Run. Shatford residents go out into Marion and rake lawns for those who request it. Also, the Shatford outreach coordinator offers weekly opportunities for students to get involved in the community.
